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.
Many of our flowers are great for drying, so you can enjoy your fresh picked bouquets even longer!
