We were told that they rotate their stock to offer the best of each season. We even saw unique selections like this spray painted lily.
In a different part of the city we found this small garden center/flower shop that even had posters that talked about the correct use of pesticides and efficient water management. It had a little more room and even carried heathers, cypress and small maples.
The small maple was selling for 63 euro. Right now that is over $85; pretty expensive for a small tree.
In the local grocery stores you won’t find too many fresh vegetables, at least not the selection that we are accustomed to here in the stores. Most neighborhoods still have vegetable stands. Every morning we would wake up to hear the sound of the market next door to our hotel, getting their delivery of local fresh vegetables.
