Driving on Babcock Boulevard you can only get a peek of Hahn Nursery & Flower Shop in Ross Township. It’s nestled down at the bottom of a small hill beside a tire company which makes it hard to appreciate but it’s definitely worth the turn down the steep curved entrance for a closer look.
The shop is much larger than it appears from the road and has a fantastic selection of flowers, trees, and shrubs. But there is so much more to enjoy. There are bubbling fountains and water gardens that make shopping for yard work relaxing.
There is also a big selection of hearty vegetables and fragrant herbs. It was such a refreshing change from shopping at the big chain stores’ garden centers. My daughter got a wagon and enjoyed pulling it through the gravel walkways as I strolled along trying to get ideas on how to improve my curb appeal.
Planters are everywhere in every shape and size and price range. If you need help with yard work, Hahn’s crews offer planting and delivery services which was very helpful since I bought three large concrete planters and had no way to transport them home.
There were a lot of helpful employees tending to plants and asking customers if they needed help. But they were all fairly young so I waited for the manager to finish up with other customers to ask some pointed questions about my herb garden.
Hahn’s also has quirky things such as live lady bugs, praying mantis, and even contraptions to catch stink bugs. Best of all they offer gift certificates which is an amazing idea because Hahn Nursery has something for everyone.
