The “& More” part of our name refers to the many other interesting plants we are evaluating and growing for sale. Besides the previously mentioned Trollius, Camassia, and Colchicum, these include hardy field-grown ferns and the very reliable Delphinium strains from New Zealand. Our seasonal greenhouse is filled with tropical ferns, scented geraniums, plus what Chanticleer Gardens’ horticulturist Dan Benarcik once called, “the best selection of Bromeliads north of Orlando”. As of yet we lack the proper facilities that would make mail order possible for most of these items. The best method for discovering our other plant selections is to come see us at one of the many enjoyable horticultural events we regularly attend as vendors. In addition, David is often urged to bring along plant material relative to his lecture topics to offer attendees, so these dates are included too.

annual autumn "Gardener's Emporium in West Boylston MA
