I’m a huge fan of Block’s farm stand and greenhouse, 29160 Eureka Road, Romulus, which just opened for its 89th season.
Block’s has about 50 huge green houses chock full this time of year with reasonably priced bedding plants, potted flowers, annuals, perennials, shrubs — you name it. As one happy gardener posted, “incredible selection, awesome prices.”
Blocks is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Weekends are ludicrously busy, although it’s fun to kibitz with other shoppers. If you’re in a hurry go during the week.
Arrive with a plan, or you’ll be tempted to buy everything in sight.
