2019 Season- Happy New Year

We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. That everyone was able to enjoy and appreciate time spent with friends and  family.
For us, (except during a cough cough snowstorm) the week after Christmas is quiet. The store is closed and we’re able to take some time to reflect on the past season, and improvements we can work on for the coming season. It is a resting period…but there is also excitement and anticipation that starts to bubble as we comb over orders of nursery stock coming in, vegetable seeds to start, annuals and perennials to plant, hundreds of mums to choose from and yes, poinsettias to pick out for the coming year!

The foundation of this company has come from a love to produce wonderful plants and make them available to our local customers. The business has evolved exponentially since our humble beginnings in 1998, and we’ve grown based on the needs and services we’re able to provide to our customers.

Please take a few moments to reflect this winter on how you’d like your 2019 season to go. If there is anything you’re interested in or need help with in order to fulfill you’re landscaping needs, plant addictions, and local food sustainability, please let us know!

Otherwise, we wish you a great 2019 year!

Poinsettia Update

Our poinsettias are coloring up, and looking fabulous. Since we grow our own, now is the time to come and get them! First come, first serve! It’s been a fun and interesting crop, and we learn new things every growing season.

 If you’re out front picking out the perfect tree, jump in the car and take a ride to our greenhouse outback. We’ll have elves working in the first one (with Christmas Lights) and that’s where you’ll find gifts, plants and poinsettias. We have ribbons for making custom bows, so you can mix and match!

 

We looking forward to seeing you this holiday season! The countdown is on!

A Different Fall Clean-up

As we’ve all come to realize, (no surprise as New Englanders) Mother Nature has decided we get snow early this year. We had many calls about fall clean-ups and getting them done before the snow flies. This isn’t always easy or possible to accomplish. We have a limited crew at times, and are responsible for snow removal and safety as well. Having said that, here is a great article on a different take on Fall Clean-ups. A lot of the time our instincts are to “Keep up with the Joneses” and have everything nice and tidy. Which is great if that’s what you like. But think about the wildlife around as well. This is a fast-growing area, and we all need to keep in mind the repercussions of that.
