The Artful Gardener—Rochester's Newest & Coolest for Garden Stuff

I finally stopped in to The Artful Gardener on Mt. Hope today. It's in the building formerly inhabited by ARC Floral, and Jean Westcott, the owner, has transformed the space into something quite chic and modern. Even on approach you have a feeling that what is inside will be special—her little plantings on and around the building are charming.

Inside are stunning fountains, statuary, beautiful containers, many of them quite large, some furniture and other neat items for garden & home. I was quite impressed. Scroll down for more pictures.

The new shop is at 727 Mt. Hope. Tel. 585/454-2874.
