Re: shopping

Hi Auralie,
    I manage Jared's Nursery and Garden Center in Littleton. I have many
customers in the Golden area and its a pretty easy drive from Golden to me.
He needs to take C470 south and get off at the Bowles Ave Exit.

    He also lives close to the newest garden center in the area....Welby at
Westwoods which is off 64th street north of Golden. great people!1 The
family came up with the Hardy Boy Brand of plants.

    Also, Echter's Garden Center is Close to him also. Another family owned
business at 54th and garrison. They still grow a lot of their own plants,
have a great patio and gill section, and a cute gift shop. Definately a
destination kind of place.
