It’s spring…and time to plant primrose, pansies and other early spring annuals and perennials like hellebores and dianthus. Blooming perennials and annuals add early color to your garden and brighten up not only a dreary landscape but also your mood!

The nursery at Shady Brook Farm is starting to fill up with all sorts of beautiful, cold tolerant plants, with truckloads literally arriving daily. If you don’t see what you want one day, check back the next for something new.

Not sure if it’s too early to plant a certain thing? If you find it outside in our Garden Center, then it’s safe to plant. Some tender annuals, like lettuce, do need to be covered if temps fall below 30 degrees. Using a flattened cardboard box or sheets of newspaper is just the ticket.

We love spring around here and are happy to help with all of your landscaping needs. We not only have annuals & perennials, but also all sorts of lawn care products. Karen, our Nursery manager, is always on hand with helpful tips and expert advice…as are all of our Garden Center staff. Come on in!
