Perusing the New York Botanical Garden’s 250 acres can be an all-day affair, so we suggest visiting the shop first to avoid missing out on its fantastic selection of gifts, books, housewares and plants. A skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows create the illusion that you’re shopping outdoors, inspiring you to re-create a natural environment at home with Filix Botanica fern-print plates (four for $48) and pewter garlic-shaped salt and pepper shakers ($58 for the set) that appear to have been freshly uprooted. Deck out your windowsill with floral galvanized-steel pots ($8) or square glazed-ceramic styles ($14), then keep your plants flourishing with Monty’s organic liquid food ($10). Your long day in the garden will call for freshening up, so be sure to pick up Bronnley orange-and-jasmine body wash ($26) and citrus-shaped soaps ($7).
