One a my favorite NYC garden moments was in The Village talking to the owner of a 'garden center' down there that looked more like a used furniture store . The guy brought me upstairs to his office to tell me a thing or two about the garden biz when i mentioned I what I did. In the middle of his long winded rant about the ins and outs of being a Gothem green ho' he leaned in close to me and said..."I got two words for ya ...silk flowers." or something to that effect. He went on to explain how his fake flower landscapes had been a hit with many of the city's municipal localities. They loved them he said and so did he -no water, no messy soil, and NO ONE is the wiser. I would tell you wear some of these fake landscapes are but he swore me to secrecy .
