Hanah: These plants are from Fiesta Gardens (South of Dupont and just West off Christie. I don't rbmemeer the name of the side street but you'll see Fiesta Farms the grocery store right at the corner. Fiesta Gardens is just a little further in). It's the best selection I can find in one place as someone living downtown who also doesn't drive or have access to a car. I frequent lots of other stores too but Fiesta has a bit of everything. Just don't go there for soil. Elaine: The large red plants are shiso. There are also 4 pots of different types of basil, zinnias, marigold like Lemon Gem' but larger, and lots of nasturtiums for my hanging basket.Everytime I go I fill up exactly one small box because it is all I can carry by hand. The echeveria is a tender succulent so I'll have to find a spot for it indoors over winter if I want to get value for my dollars.
