Best Container Gardens
Falls Church neighbors Julie Liu and Holly Manon first bonded over their shared love of gardening and their affinity for native plants, which are better for the environment and support a pollinator system. Now, from their pink-clapboard shop on West Broad Street, the nature lovers are helping customers make their own thumbs (and homes) a little greener. An in-store retail section showcases handmade, local goods and rustic garden accessories, while workshops offer hands-on horticultural advice with take-home results. But it’s Botanologica’s custom-designed container gardens and seasonal installations of greenery and flora that are its stock-in-trade.
