Knupper Nursery & Landscape

In my quest for my arch and some other things for the garden, I stopped at this shop along “nursery row” on Rand Road. Knupper, pronounced Kn-oo-per (no silent k), is a gigantic establishment that runs about a full block. It probably rivals Atrium in its size, but didn't seem to have as much ornamental stuff for the garden, or outdoor furniture. It's impossible to miss from the road, with its walls adorned with large murals of birds and animals. Even an electrical box outside has a chipmunk painted on it! While I did not find an arch like I wanted, I did get a sturdy wood trellis for a clematis that has been spreading all the way up to the rooftop. It was not something I had not been planning to buy, but I didn't see one as solid and tall as the one at Knupper. I also got some petunias to put in baskets and planters. The mini petunias in orange, yellow and shades of pink and purple simply can't be found at the big box stores. Not only that, but the plants were in really good shape, rather than being merely “survivors” as it seems to happen at Home Depot stores. And I have to commend Knupper's for having a huge number of wagons and carts available to transport stuff. At too many garden centers I've visited, seems the carts and wagons are hidden away somewhere at the other end of the store, requiring a long walk. Here, they seem to be at every entrance, and even between sections of the store. Knupper is a bit pricier than Atrium, so I'd recommend checking one of the other stores along Rand before committing to something big like an arch, trellis or giant planter from here, but I can't say anything bad about them. While I liked Atrium the best, Knupper holds its own and I still would go back there for certain garden items in the future.
