This garden center behind the old Parklane Seafood/Flamingo Club building started off in the South Carolina Farmers' Market on Bluff Road, and moved over to Leesburg when the Farmers' Market was redeveloped.

Bloomin' Idiots Garden Market and Plant Shoppe, 626 Meeting Street: summer 2009   3 comments

Posted at 12:17 am in Uncategorized

I'm not sure when this plant store on Meeting Street closed -- there was a sign on the door, but none of my pictures of it came out because of glass reflections and light ink. According to their website though, they opened (or planned to open) in the Spring of 2009, so I'm guessing they were there about a year. Again, from their site, the place was to be more than a nursery, with local peaches and other produce as well as plants and trees. It sounds a little like the niche that Grice's was in.

To me it seems like a pretty good location (It's true that there are big-box stores (and Wal Mart) not too far away, but you have to go through the bottleneck of lights in Triangle City and the big merge on Augusta Road to get to them), but apparently in the event, not good enough.

UPDATE 9 Sept 2010: Changed closing date in post title from 2010 to 2009 based on comments.

UPDATE 20 July 2011 -- It's now a drumming studio:
