Because we sell plants (not to mention vegetables and seeds for those who want or need to grow their own food, and pet foods for our four-legged family members) Country Garden can remain open during the two week shut-down in Massachusetts.
As we’re hunkering down at home and keeping our contact with others to a minimum, we’re also trying to find ways to stay sane while we remain safe. Despite all the uncertainty and concerns that we experience daily, there are, thankfully, many ways to distract and nurture ourselves. Here are some “plant based” ideas for keeping your spirits high, plus some suggestions of how we can help.
Take this opportunity to get a jump on your spring cleanup in the yard. As weather permits, cut down last year’s perennial stalks and rake leaves out of beds and inside hydrangea canes. It’s an especially good time to cut down old ornamental grasses before the new shoots start to grow.
Prune white hydrangeas such as the panicle types (Limelight, Pee Gee and Vanilla Strawberry) by removing crossed branches, too long stems and odd shaped growth.
As you scroll through the suggestions below, know that we offer curb-side pickup and delivery of all plants and products. Call the store for details: 508-775-8703.
