Around the Farm
In the Garden Center

April is free re-potting month! Bring in your root-bound, winter-tired houseplant and talk with a member of our garden center team to find out what to do to make it happy! If it needs to be repotted, we will do that for free when you purchase a new pot. Standard potting fees apply when no pot is purchased.

Coast of Maine Dark Bark Mulch (2 cubic foot bags) is on sale during the month of April. It's a good time to stock up because you'll probably need it
when your beds are all planted!
