Cady’s Falls Nursery – Part 2

June 17th, 2016

And….now we’re back to the lovely nursery I introduced you to yesterday. There were so many wonderful things, like these teeny-tiny irises that were only a few inches tall.

There were hundreds of primulas in all colors, shapes, and sizes in the water garden and the woodland garden. Each one was incredibly beautiful!

There were climbing vines, trees, perennials, all interesting and unique varieties and beautifully put together in an amazing display of texture, color, and height.

There was even a Himalayan blue poppy, something I’ve been thinking about buying seeds for to start for my garden. It’s the first one I’ve seen in person after hearing about them for years.

What’s your favorite unusual plant to add interest in the garden?

Cady’s Falls Nursery (part 1)

June 16th, 2016

This past weekend, Mr Chiots and I popped over to Vermont to visit Cady’s Falls Nursery. I’ve been wanting to visit for quite a while now, but they are only open a few weekends each summer and I always seem to find out about it after the fact. This little gem is everything a nursery should be, with lovely gardens that highlight the plants they sell. You can walk through the garden, decide which plants you love in a garden setting, then purchase them in the nursery area. Here are some photos of the garden, there were so many I’ll post more tomorrow and maybe more next week.

This nursery specializes in rare plants, there quite a few stunning specimens in their gardens. I especially loved seeing plants in person that I’ve only read about in books. We came home with our car packed full of all sorts of lovely plants, more about those next week. Check back tomorrow for more photos of this lovely garden.

Have you discovered any little nursery gems in your area?
