Best Place to Buy Plants: Another Place in Time
Open only on the weekends (for a while it had stopped serving the general public completely so customers rejoiced when it resumed), Another Place in Time is a charming, wonderful garden center making up for its small size with a selection of plants that you're never going to find in the largest nurseries and discount places. Specializing in orchids, succulents and plants native to Texas, Another Place in Time offers a range from the obscure to the regular, but even the common plants seem special. Priced affordably, the plants are healthy and do well when taken home — especially with the guidance of the friendly, knowledgeable staff.
