Favorite nurseries and garden centers, what are yours???
Hi fellow gardeners,
At this time of year my time spent visiting nurseries is in high gear! I thought it would be fun to make a list of favorite places to visit to buy plants and supplies and see where other people are shopping this year.
To make this thread readable, please list your favorite nursery and garden centers using the following format:
1st Line: #) Nursery Name, Town, State Abbreviation
2nd Line: Web site or Street address or Telephone number of the nursery so other people can visit
3rd Line: why it is your favorite??
So here is my list (in no particular order):
1) Russell's Garden Center, Wayland, MA
-Wonderful selection of plants, especially rock garden plants, containers, water garden plants, interesting garden supplies.
2) Mahoney's Garden Center, Winchester, MA
-The original location! Large selection of perennials, annuals, trees and shrubs.
3) Lake Street Garden Center, Salem, NH
-Rock garden plants, heirloom tomato starter plants, herbs, unusual annuals
4) Catalado Nurseries and Garden Center, Littleton, MA
-Selection of perennials, containers, fertilizers, silk flower supplies. Also they have a wonderful gift shop.
5) Griggs Farm, Billerica, MA
599 Boston Road, Rte. 3A
-Heirloom vegetable starter plants, starter sized clematis vines at a good price. Of course their corn and tomatoes in summer!
6) New England Wildflower Society, Framingham, MA
-Of course the native plant selection is great here!
7) Blanchette Gardens, Carlisle, MA
-Wonderful shade perennials and other exotic perennials. Extensive selection.
8) R.Seawright Gardens, Carlisle, MA
-Great for Hostas and field dug daylilies. Like the display gardens of hostas. Visit in July and August.
