Best For Cape Cod!

What plants do best on Cape Cod? At Hyannis Country Garden we recognize that some aspects of gardening on the Cape are different from other locations. Our predominantly sandy soils, off-ocean winds, and salt spray can influence local landscapes and how we tend them. Country Garden’s customers frequently request our “insider information” about the plants and products that work especially well in this area. With these appeals in mind, we’ve created our Best for Cape Cod designation.

Look for this graphic on plants and products that our experience has shown are particularly successful for Cape Cod landscapes.

Yes, other plants and products might do equally well, but if you want what we commonly call a “no-brainer”, you can’t go wrong with the selections that are marked with this graphic.

In order to better help area gardeners, we have the following plant and product lists available for download. Print out these pdf files and bring them into the garden center when you’re shopping for plants.
