Dimitri's Garden Center

Dimitri's is an old NYC gardening resource, it keeps moving farther and farther north and now it is in the Bronx. I trekked up there today to spend a client's $500 gift certificate and pick out some pots to plant up tomorrow. I got a few big frost and UV resistant polyethylene pots that look just like terra cotta but weigh about 80% less.I like this little Acer in the big stone dish.

This was my favorite specimen in the whole place (and I rarely admit to picking favorites) Acer japonicum 'Aconitifolium' or Fernleaf Full Moon Maple espalier! Yum yum yum it was so pretty! I totally filtched one of the seed clusters to go gorilla some empty lot with!
