A bit of history on the House by the side of the road: We are a year round garden center with a lovely gift shop.  This business was started in 1971 and we've been at our current location since 1976.  We sell houseplants, annuals, perennials, shrubbery, hanging baskets, pottery, fairy garden plants and many accessories. 

Our knowledgeable staff is always available to help you choose what will work best for your property and your home.  With our years of experience, you can be rest assured that your home, garden and landscaping will be the best it can be! 

Please feel free to come in & explore our greenhouses.  In the winter months HBTSOTR provides a short tropical escape from the NH weather.  We have inside and outdoor ponds with our pet turtles, koi, and goldfish.  Free popcorn and hot coffee, we hope to see you soon!

Larkspur 

Larkspur - Consolida ajacis

The pale and dark blues of larkspur are some of the prettiest you'll find in the garden. And they come with little effort. Plant larkspur once and allow the flower heads to ripen, scattering their seed, and you'll be assured of a steady supply of larkspur in your garden for decades. All you'll need to do is pull out the ones you don't want!

Larkspur

Larkspur is basically an annual version of delphinium, an all-time favorite perennial. Larkspur produces lovely spikes of blue, purple, pink, or white flowers in spring and summer. They look best clustered in small patches.

Like many cool-season annuals, it's a good winter-blooming plant for the Deep South. Larkspur is so easy to grow that it often self seeds in the garden, coming back year after year. Plant larkspur from seed directly in the garden in early spring. Larkspur doesn't like to be transplanted. It prefers rich, well-drained soil and ample water.

When hot weather strikes and larkspur starts to brown and fade, pull out plants, but be sure to leave a few to brown and reseed.

Don't let your cat near the garden.

We have a great selection of Cat Grass $2.99 & Catnip $4.99. 

Our Cat Grass is grown by us from organic wheat berry grass seed in 4" pots for $2.99.  It is either a white or red wheat grass seed that we use, however the end result is nearly the same.  They last for only 2 weeks and it helps keep the cats away from the houseplants!  

Catnip/$4.99 & Cat Grass/$2.99
