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!!

Red Hot Pokers

In case you have not noticed a trend, I am being drawn to red hot colors and tropical foliage as the Maine winter comes in upon us. I am looking out the window now from my office with about 8″ of snow on the ground. I get the feeling that the snow might be here…

Beautiful Baptisia + Peonies = Glorious Early Summer Arrangements

Have you ever ‘weeded’ out a plant – sure that it was a nuisance only to realize later that it was something you intended? I have.  About 5 years ago I inadvertently massacred about eight Baptisia australis that I planted the previous spring. They hadn’t bloomed (given their first year status) so a year later,…

Garden Beanbag Slabs

My friend who lives in London — though she is not a Brit – just posted on facebook about how much she is enjoying her garden bean bag slab.  She is cool as a a cucumber and not the type to tout a product just for the sake of it- so it must be good. …
