101 North: Fairfax, The Potting Shed

 
The Potting Shed  55 Bolinas Rd., (415) 455-9459.  Daily 11-5.  Literally the size of a potting shed, this is a sanctuary of charming container gardens and gardening accessories to fall in love with.  The specialty is succulents, which are low-maintenance, sculptural, and don’t require much watering.  Classes are conducted in a courtyard behind the shop, and living potted arrangements can be delivered in the area.  An even tinier adjacent shop purveys fine locally crafted jewelry, art, and more. As Proust once said, "Let us be thankful to those who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

Gardens to visit.
