Garden Grove Organics

“Feed me, Seymour!” Joshua Stout’s colorful Little Shop of Horrors-inspired mural is hard to miss on the side of Covington’s Garden Grove Organics. The spray-painted piece features everyone’s favorite bloodthirsty plant-alien, Audrey II, grinning — presumably post-suppertime. Take in the mural, but don’t take it as a sign to adopt any demanding, vampiric plants. Garden Grove Organics is housed in a renovated former Mexican restaurant in Roebling Point and boasts everything you need to grow your plants at home, from lights and reflective film to soil amenders and hydroponic systems. If you aren’t ready to dive that far in, Garden Grove has a selection of what owner Alex Fraser calls “hard-to-find house plants.” The shop also hosts free classes.
