For many visitors to the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show the display gardens I covered in yesterday’s post are the primary attraction. However, I was looking forward just as much to the Plant & Flower Market housed in Fiesta Hall, a somewhat smaller space right next to the main pavilion. While Northern California has no shortage of nurseries, this was a great opportunity to check out the offerings of small vendors both from in and out of state.
Air Plants from Owens Gardens, the first booth we stopped at, was a good example. This seller traveled all the way from Washington state. They had the most beautiful air plants I’d ever seen. I’m not an expert—having killed four tillandsias a couple of years ago—but my traveling companion Candy is an aficionado and pored over their offerings.
