I have searched many places as a native of the area to find trees and plants to create a landscape makeover. Paul knows all the right information about weather, sun and appropriate choices for this area!!! Rich has great taste in unique home decor. Great value, great choices, great fun. Adorable dog Nora...watch out for Cruella!

I also use them regularly to send flowers to my family in Portsmouth. The arrangements or live plants that arrive from Bowmans are not only beautiful, but always fresh and abundantly large for the amount of money that I spend! Great Work Guys!

Paul and Rich are each equally accommodating and add a genteel element which is expected in the true Southern hospitality experience. I find prices to be within reason and, with an array of the unexpected, gems are prevelant for the particular buyer. This is a store which caters to the "tea-and-roses" connoisseur and is NOT for the gardener who isn't in the market for quality. Kudos, neighbors! I, for one, am hooked!

I love going to browse and usually buy something that I have not seen anywhere else. Can't wait for the Christmas Open House.
