I’ve gone to Bakers since I moved out into my country home, more than twenty years ago. Like most garden centers they have changed over the years, but of the things I have most appreciated about them is their excellent quality. At one time I made the trip to their store because of the rarities I could find there, and they still carry some unusual plants, but now their artistically planted containers and the great choices of specific plants such as tuberous begonias and foliage plants draw my interest.
I especially noticed the many fine custom baskets and containers that were being planted up this year. Some of the most imaginative and original artistry goes into their creations. There is a truly beautiful selection of garden ornaments of all types… for many tastes from the whimsical to the classic.
The prices range from moderate to moderately high, but given the quality and artistry this makes economic sense. I’ve often purchased from discount displays in non-garden stores and been disappointed. A plant well-grown is something which has organic health and will repay in its price in longer life and good looks as a rule. That is why you will find frugal me making the trek to this store.
I liked that you could see the staff creating custom containers and baskets in one of their greenhouse areas. If you feel unsure of how to combine plants, observing this type of operation first hand is educational. I did notice that Bakers Village has workshops, too. For a fee you can learn from professionals. An upcoming class on Fairy gardens (I notice it is sold out), and the display of figurines, little chairs, houses, and books is absolutely charming (no fairy dust involved- at least I don’t think so!)
If you decide to go, remember that the Columbus Zoo is nearby and it is an exciting Botanical garden as well as a zoo, and think about dropping in on the Morgan House restaurant, a “ladies who lunch” restaurant, with thoroughly pleasant surroundings, good food, great service, and relaxing atmosphere.
I should add that I received no compensation for any business or attraction mentioned in this post- I just want my readers to have some insights into what is available in the Central Ohio area. My treat!
