Buchanan’s Native Plants is foremost a plant nursery, but inside the bungalow is a small gift shop where you can find men’s lotions and shave gels from the Heroes and Aristocrats line from Royal Apothic. This line of skin care products for men has a manly scent that will appeal to both men and the women in their lives. Buchanan’s Native Plants is open daily from 9 p.m. to 6 p.m. You may also find other surprises in the bungalow gift shop to take care of your skin after being in the garden, though the other products may not necessarily be for shaving.
