I love shopping at Parks on 72 and their place coupled with Wayside Gardens has alot of great bargains. You do, however, need to go armed with your own personal knowledge as I agree with the previous poster that their staff lacks alot of general knowledge.

As a small hobby gardener I find shopping here to be a big disappointment. I love their catologs but as a retail outlet they just don't cut it.

July 1, 2013 I find a trip to the retail store a waste of time on regular business days.
Flower Day was interesting and I got some great plants for great prices.
As for the Flower Day displays, if I had never seen the gardens in their heydays over the years I would have been impressed. Having visited many times in the past, however, I couldn't help but remember how it used to be and mentally make unfavorable comparisons.
My advise: If you want to buy from Parks, use the internet or buy from one of their catalogs, don't waste time making a trip. Their established plantings are interesting and pretty but their test beds are not impressive anymore.
