A great many gardeners, including me, have missed Smith and Hawken's quality and unique products since their stores closed so suddenly. Remember how exciting it was when S & H opened their store at University Village? Hey, I did my part and more to keep that store in business - most of my garden furniture and many pots, lights and other garden details were purchased there.
Smith and Hawken items are back, if not their stores, with a debut of new products later this month at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show . All the furniture, tools and garden decor you'll see in the "ultimate potting shed" display at the show will be on sale at Target this spring.
This pitch comes at a cost to my conscience - as long as Target keeps making anti-gay political contributions I won't go near the place. But from Feb 23 to Feb 27, you can see Smith and Hawken goodies at the Flower and Garden Show. Don't expect to ever see their products on my blog in future, though, because I don't expect I'll hear from Target's publicist again after this post.
