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.

Their gift shop is also worth strolling through, adding a sort of fairy kingdom aura to the ambience. If you're looking for something different than everyone else is planting and plants that will thrive in the Houston climate, expand your horizons and drop into this place in the Heights.

Open weekends: Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
