, 6837 Route 9 Rhinebeck, New York Visit Their Site

The sense of warmth that houseplants bring to a room is nearly as palpable as that of a roaring fire—especially if the plants are potted in colorful, well-made pottery. The Phantom Gardener, a longtime Rhinebeck institution, specializes in the unusual when it comes to both houseplants and their containers. This sustainability-driven, strictly organic garden shop specializes in organic and heirloom varieties, along with landscape and hardscape design, in the warmer months of the year, but during winter, showcases an array of exotic houseplants and the work of local craftspeople, including hand-thrown pots and other handmade gift items and holiday decorations.
