Welcome to Vermont Gardens! If you have had the opportunity to visit Vermont Flower Farm, either by web at http://vermontflowerfarm.com or in person up on the mountain above Peacham Pond in Marshfield, Vermont, you already know what a growing nursery business this is. The interesting evolution of our nursery from its days as Vermont Herb & Flower Farm in Shelburne, Vermont is explained on our home page.
Since 1992 we had been growing bigger in Marshfield. We reached the point where rebirth in a new location seemed to make sense. This new blog will complement The Vermont Gardener http://thevermontgardener.blogspot.com bringing garden updates during the growing season and garden thoughts and conversation the remainder of the time. Vermont Gardens will show the development of a new nursery from the time the land was purchased through it's first years of operation. As the nursery and Vermont Gardens grows, we'll integrate some stories about other Vermont gardens and nurseries which we enjoy. We will also weave in some local stories and personalities, bits of ecology and observations about our new project, the land it encompasses and the Winooski River which it borders. We hope you'll read and enjoy Vermont Gardens just as you have told us you enjoy The Vermont Gardener.
George, Gail and Alex Africa
