“This is my favorite place for flower deliveries,” Aldridge says. Owners Alex Vaughan and Quinn Kiesow’s space in East Nashville is filled with arrangements that include bunches of wildflowers and romantic combinations of blush- and peach-colored roses and dahlias. There are also shelves filled with potted greens, succulents, and terrariums that make great gifts.
High Garden Tea
935A Woodland St., Five Points
Leah and Joel Laravell are longtime herb and tea obsessives and the partners behind High Garden Tea. Leah brews her own tonics and tinctures inspired by old Appalachian remedies, and the rustic, cabin-style shop is the kind of place where you want to linger for hours (something the Laravells heartily encourage). Shelves and counters are stocked with herbs, spices, and whole-leaf teas, and everything is sourced from organic and ethically wildcrafted sources. There are also house-made kombucha and cactus kefir available, and the owners host monthly workshops for those looking to learn about herbalism, tinctures, and the simple beauty of a good cup of tea.
