best Lowe's/HD in NOVA?

odyssey3(7 noVA)February 8, 2011

I have just moved from SC to northern Virgina and I miss the great selection of houseplants my local Lowe's and Home Depot had. I have been to the Lowe's at Potomac Mills and was shocked at the lack of houseplants. I live near Old Town and was wondering if anyone could point me to Lowe's or Home Depots that have quality houseplants like I'm used to.

I will check out Merrifield garden Center, but I tend to only hit garden centers for very rare/unusual things. I miss buying hoyas, etc. at 8:30 on a Friday night!

I'm in Montgomery County, MD, not far from you, and hate to say that the HD's, Lowe's and other big box stores in this area all have disappointing house/tropical plant selections. It's nothing like the stores further south. Once in a while they'll get something interesting but you'd better get there fast, before the employees kill it : ( You are much better off shopping in a dedicated nursery or better yet online.
