grow shops

There is a "grow shop" near my home, and it's a great source for many 
hobby growers' needs. They have a warehouse stocking more than twenty 
kinds of potting medium, and I can sort through the ingredient lists 
to find one that just suits my bulb and alpine seedlings and other 
container plants; usually I add some sand or pumice. I also find 
irrigation items and non-toxic insect treatments there. This week 
they're advertising ladybugs, and they've added a small selection of 
native plants. I don't care if my purchases end up in a federal 
record --  I probably already have one from college radical days in 
the sixties.

Maybe these are "gateway" garden centers that will draw into 
specialized ornamental gardening some of the young people our garden 
groups are always worried about attracting?
