Wallace's is a great place to visit even if you're not looking to stock up on gardening supplies. It's beautiful inside and out, with some space dedicated to inside decor and jewelry, and tons more to the beautification of your patio, lawn, and garden. I went there on a mission to find my mom a succulent and a tiger lily for Mother's Day and we were all thrilled with the results, so much so that I returned make an identical purchase for my grandmother!
