Since growing cannabis has become legalized in Virginia stores that offer the needed supplies are starting to spout up around the commonwealth. One such store has recently opened in Broadway.
Owners Eddie Hilbert and Skylar Whetzel opened Legacy Grow Supply LLC in June of this year. Formerly both where employed in Automotive Sales and share an entrepreneurial spirit, so opening a business was a natural fit for the couple. Eddie’s passion for gardening from a young age began by helping his family grow their food.
Although he tried cannabis in his youth, he did not enjoy consuming it as a teen however later in life he has experienced the therapeutic benefits and does not think they should be ignored. Today he grows everything and is glad to share his knowledge with customers and new growers. Over the years in his garden, he has gathered a wealth of experience for growing generally any vegetable plant. For a while he has considered a grow supply store because there was not one nearby and decided this was the right time.
Some of the products sold are intended to grow indoors and some are more suited to outdoor gardening. And having a resident expert to advise is a valuable resource.
Legacy Grow Supply is primarily stocked with things to grow cannabis however the soil amendments and other supplies are also helpful to grow many vegetable crops. Bulk amendments like perlite are even sold at a savings over purchasing smaller amounts at a big box store.
Gardening tools are available along with harvest accessories. Specialty items including carbon filters, hydrometers, PH pens, clippers etc., grow tents and pots are all available. Happy Frog, Fox Farm, Ocean Forest, and other leading brands line the shelves. These products likely to be safer than miracle grow and other synthetic products because they are made with consumption in mind not just growing a giant plant at any cost.
If your curious about this new store be sure to stop in and check out this new store and say hello, Eddie a friendly shop keeper and is always glad to chat with new people interested in gardening.
The store is located at 409 S Main St, Broadway, VA 22815. You can find them online via Facebook and the store website legacygrowsupply.com
