Going to a party?  Bring flowers!  (think Gift Certificate)

We're in New Hampshire HOME!

Try these fragrant flowers for your (indoor) winter garden

Enjoy the beauty—and sweet smells—of these houseplants that blossom during our coldest months.



Being cooped up for the winter makes us crave not only the warmth but the smell of summer. If you can’t afford a tropical vacation, visit one of our local greenhouses to find many houseplants known for their deliciously fragrant flowers or scented foliage.

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!
