The city is large enough, and filled with enough nobles and rich merchants, that it can support a number of "frivolous businesses". Thus Garden in the City is the first Florist in the city (heck… in The Land).
The florist sells flowers and plants of all natures for festivals, parties, romantic gifts, and anything else that the presence of flowers can enhanced.
The shop is quite small really. The shopfront has a large picture window, showing off the greens and flowers that are "ready" in the shop. There is a small desk where business is conducted by Thalanus, the proprietor. Behind this small shop is a long alley, which leads back to towards the docks. At the docks there is a good sized warehouse. It is an odd warehouse, as it has a glass roof. It is here that flowers and greens are maintained through the dry and cold months.
Thalanus is a half elf, applying human ingenuity to an Elven problem. In creation of The Garden of the City, he has found a possible solution to Elves living in Human cities. The large warehouse with its glass roof, and dripping water lines, and warm green environment, can help the claustrophobic Elves live in this place of cold unliving stone. If he can gather enough money, he plans on creating more glass buildings and rescuing of the displaced Elven people of his father’s line.
