ClintonHillBlog has a preview of flower shop Root Stock & Quade's new Clinton Hill outpost, opening at 471 Myrtle Avenue May 1st. "The shop will be offering garden design, full service floral design for weddings and events, retail, indoor and outdoor plants (herbs, perennials, shrubs, etc) and flowers by the bunch and the stem. Come fall, they hope to offer the occasional class on window boxes and basic houseplant care...[Owner John] Rattigan is prepared for the inevitable backlash on pricepoints at the store, but stresses that high quality plants and flowers (ie non-refrigerated!) aren’t inexpensive."
