Wanted: suggestions of 'too good to miss' garden centers.

It is looking like I'll be making one last trip cross country this spring/summer. The route is unplanned at this time and may go across the northern states from MT to MD. That is what I usually do. OR, I might go south along the rockies and then head east from NM. The deciding factor will probably be if I leave here in late May or later in early July.
I'm interested in getting small potted plants as I go. Mostly house plants but I often can't resist out door plants either. If you have a very favorite garden center or nursery, someplace that is worth a "couple hours out of the way" please let me know the name and location.
I'll enjoy checking on the maps and seeing if I can fit them into one route or the other. Thanks for sharing. BB

Hi Beth
I don't know where in MD you'll be, but this place is in the Lancaster area of PA. Go to the Lititz location, it's the biggest.

Wow, Pam their website certainly looks good. I'm thinking that I'll combine a visit there with a fall pilgrimage to Fairweather Gardens in NJ. I have brother in NJ and one in Bucks county PA so I could go for a weekend and visit too.
Thanks so much for the tip and the web link.

Where is Fairweather Gardens in NJ? I'm only a hour from the Deleware River border. If we go to Lancaster in the next few weeks, I'll get a better location on a Amish family owned greenhouse there too. It's on a farm on the back roads, but another great stop.
