“Chef” Jack Blandy and Stoney Bank Nurseries (61 Stoney Bank Rd., Glen Mills, PA 19342) have cooked up a mouth-watering exhibit to capture the delectable side of Paris. This rooftop garden has everything for throwing the perfect dinner party, including a wine cooler, grill, and a simple table setting.
No need to run to the le supermarché, this garden has all the fresh herbs and veggies you could ever ask for. There are also espalier apple and pear trees that have elicited both “oohs” and “aahs” from the crowds.
Since sustainability is important to Stoney Bank, the crew wanted to highlight some of the services they offer. Look for a green roof, solar panels, recycled pavers, and a rainwater harvest system. “We wanted it to be both environmentally friendly and sophisticated. We think any French chef would feel at home in this setting,” Jack says.
