A Visit to Uncanoonuc Mt. Perennials.

The staff at Uncanoonuc Mt. Perennials are so nice, they just smile sweetly even when they have no idea what you are yammering on about.

Last week, I was up in New Hampshire visiting the Proven Winners Team at Pleasant View Gardens and on my way back I thought it the perfect time to check out a garden center that had been highly recommended by my friend Neil at The Gardeners Spot (one of my fav. local garden centers).  Neil told me about this fantastic nursery that his closest friend has created that put his own beautiful center to shame.  Simply, a must visit….

I googled and knew two things….that the center was between Manchester and Concord, New Hampshire and that it had a really odd name.  Uncanoonuc sounded right.

And then when I got home I had an email from Neil making sure I found the right place…he wanted to know what I thought of  Chakarian Farm Greenhouses.

Right, another crazy named nursery between Manchester and Concord.

But seriously — Uncanoonuc Mt Perennials is well worth a visit.  It’s in Goffstown, NH.

  1. What a lovely nursery, would love it if there was one like this in my area! Yeah I like it that the plants are in the ground as well, I’m sure that makes it a lot easier to imagine what they would look like in your own garden. Great photos!!

Smokehouse & Meat House Garden Inspiration

I am finding Smoke houses so inspiring today. I know – a little odd, but it is the collision of lots of ideas coming from other places.  My husband is determined to become an even greater gentleman farmer by adding some sort of smallish animal (like a pig or goat) to our little plot,  that…

Inspired by: Signe Persson Melin

Let me introduce you to Signe Persson-Melin, a Scandinavian ceramics designer whose creations I think will inspire you.   When I happened across her work I was immediately surprised that a considerably talented product designer like her would have given the time to design something like garden pavers.  Don’t garden pavers seem like one of those things that no one would ever…
