Ever wanted to grow your own bananas or pineapples, but never thought you could in VA? You can if you buy a plant from Nearwater Gardens & Botanicals! They specialize in tropical plants such as orchids, African violets, banana trees, and pineapple plants. They also have the less-exotic perennials and bedding plants. Furthermore, there's baked goods, jams, and jellies to purchase. The gardens are closed Sunday & Monday. The greenhouse is open by appointment. And if you can't get to their gardens, they sell their wares at the Bowling Green Community Market on Saturdays (9am-1pm) and Wednesdays (4-7pm) on Chase Street.
