OUR FLOWER GARDENS

Our gardens blaze with color from asters to zinnias and from bachelor’s button to yarrow. Our hydrangeas and delphiniums are treasured throughout the Monadnock Region and beyond.

Our pick-your-own ornamental grasses and drying flowers include bupleurum, gomphrena (globeflower), prairie switch grass (Panicum virgatum), statice and strawflowers.


Our gardens begin blooming with delphiniums in late June. The season ends in early October with calendula, amaranth, and salvia. The main season offers lots of zinnias, sunflowers, cosmos, plus many other varieties.


In recent years, our flower gardens have become a favorite destination for area photographers specializing in fine art landscape and flower photography. Early mornings and late afternoons work best for photos!
