What does Summer Mean To You?
If it means
days at the beach
sun screen
ice cream
lobster dinners
prepared food
cold drinks
beautiful flowers
delicious veggies
then we have what you need!
If you want flowers to be part of your summer,
then you should take a
Flower Cutting Tour
and cut your own bunch of flowers! 
Cost is $30 per person! 

Space is limited!
Tours are limited to 12 people each.
There will be no refunds issued unless there is active lightening and thunder the morning of the tour.

These tours will sell out quickly, so if you get shut out, please email or call 508-228-9403 ext 135 as we may be able to schedule more tours based on interest and on the quantity of flowers in the field. 
Part of enjoying summertime and outdoor living is successfully deterring insects.

If you are feeling bugged by bugs, try some of this Natural, Deet-Free Bug Repellent. We tested this on the beach on the night of the fireworks and none of us got any insect bites. Find it in the market!

From the Garden Center!
There are still plenty of annuals, perennials and organic herbs and veggies to plant in your gardens!  Also in the garden center you can find fully planted mixed pots that will go right on your deck with no additional work from you!  All you need to do is water them. 

In other gardening news - the roses are spectacular this year! But what do you do when they are done blooming? 
This video will show you what you need to know when it's time to deadhead your roses! 
These Myrtle Topiaries are just wonderful!
They come in 4 sizes and forms, and the price starts at just $19.99!
There's still time to plant cut flowers!  Wouldn't these zinnias look great in a vase in your house?
