Winnsboro in east Texas is home to the cutest little plant store that I try to visit at least a couple times each year. With the perfect weather we’ve been having this week (75 degrees and blue skies), I was chomping at the bit to buy some new plants! And take some photos with their Cinderella carriage that’s just casually placed behind the roses like they wanted to be the official plant store of The Rose Table.
Vintage and Vines has some of the healthiest plants I’ve ever seen. It never ceases to amaze me. They carry such awesome varieties of everything too – you won’t find my Scentimental or Peggy Martin roses at just any plant nursery but you’ll find them both at Vintage and Vines this spring!
I often get my vegetables at Vintage and Vines but unfortunately most were sold in six packs this year, which is a great deal (only $3.50 for SIX tomato plants!) but more than I need of any one variety so I decided to hold off. The one thing I always want from Vintage and Vines but never spring for are the hanging baskets. They’re so big and beautiful!
I did however get a couple of things to take home: two insanely huge and healthy knockout roses to put in a troublesome spot in my courtyard. It’s tricky because it has full sun but has bad drainage and often has standing water after a storm. At my first house, I grew the famously trouble-free knockout roses in a similar spot and they actually did really well so fingers crossed!
I also got a stunning drift rose, which I just couldn’t live without. I’ve also never grown (or written about!) a drift rose, so I thought it would be a fun addition to the garden. I’m not 100% where I’m going to put it yet but drift roses are so small – just about 2 feet wide and tall and prolific bloomers – that I can easily pop it in several places.
Vintage and Vines has fantastic blueberry and blackberry bushes – I’m still regretting not grabbing the world’s prettiest blueberry bush! – as well as fruit trees, hydrangeas, shrubs, and tons of annuals. Inside they have adorable gifts like farmhouse signs, planters, and candy. Vintage and Vines is also just a stone’s throw away from downtown Winnsboro, which has great shops and delicious restaurants.
