Anderson-Wright Rooms and Gardens
When planning your garden, your first stop must be Anderson Wright Rooms and Gardens at 622 High Street. Set around an enclosed courtyard, Anderson-Wright Rooms & Gardens offers an extensive selection of decorative home and garden furnishings including cast iron urns, cast stone containers and statuary, as well as cast iron and aluminum furnishings. Their courtyard is an amazing place to inspire your next garden or patio project. Anderson-Wright also offers a collection of 18th and 19th century architectural windows and doors from India and European countries. The selection of home and garden decor at Anderson-Wright makes it one of the most popular of Portsmouth’s garden shops.
The Kitchen Koop
Just up the street from Anderson-Wright at 638 High Street, you will find The Kitchen Koop. Deon Foster opened this local kitchen and gourmet shop back in 1998 and has been the sole proprietor ever since. The shop serves professional chefs, home cooks, and foodies with top of the line food and kitchen products.
Deon is a trained Le Cordon Bleu Chef, having cooked all over the world. If you want to know about planting herbs, medicinal or for cooking, Deon is the person to ask. She has a beautiful herb garden located behind the shop where you will find a variety of herbs and fruit trees. It’s not usually open to the public, but she might just let you have a peek. So while not really a Portsmouth garden shop, this is the place to stop with any questions you might have about herbs. Be sure to pick up some kitchenware while you’re there.
Norfolk County Feed and Seed
Norfolk County Feed and Seed, located at 1110 Airline Boulevard in Midtown, is a Portsmouth institution since 1947. With a friendly, helpful staff, the store is proud of its heritage in Portsmouth and even displays some of the original items used when it began over 70 years ago. More than just a Portsmouth garden shop, it’s also an old-fashioned general store in the heart of the city. Having some of the best plants available throughout the region and one of the largest selections of seeds for growing vegetables and flowering plants, Norfolk County Feed and Seed is a small piece of Portsmouth history.
Lowes Garden Center
Like most other cities, Portsmouth also has a Lowes Garden Center in Victory Crossing Shopping Center at 4040 Victory Boulevard. While not a locally owned business, Lowes does support many local jobs and they have a fantastic selection of plant materials for your garden. You can also find patio furniture, bird seed and feeders, stone, pavers, and the like at this Lowes store.
