Visting Terrain at Styers

vertical gardenSo it made sense that if I interviewed to be a buyer for Terrain, then I needed to see it! Terrain at Styers is about 30 minutes outside of downtown Philadelphia in a town called Glen Mills. The name of this location pays homage to its original beginnings as Styer’s Nursery. Now it’s an 11-acre home, garden, plant, wedding, cafe, furniture, nursery (everything!) store.

As everyone told me at the interview, this is the worst time of year to visit Terrain (hah lucky us)- its the middle of winter so there are no outdoor plants, and the holiday season is over now, too.  But we still enjoyed our visit and the fresh snow was exciting to me! So fluffy! We were the only ones outside for most of the time.

We had lunch in the cafe, too. I definitely took note of the bread baked in a flower pot to replicate back at home.

Into the Mushroom Hut, one of the original buildings on the site from when it was Styer’s Nursery.  Many similarities to my grandparent’s cabin in Cambria.
