The days are warming! Bulbs are breaking ground, buds swelling and color just beginning to show on the earliest blooms. It is time to begin this seasons garden. Thicket is ready! We will open Saturday February 4th for the season.
9:00 to 6:00 on Fridays and Saturdays
11:00 to 6 :00on weekdays
Thicket is a small neighborhood garden shop many of you know and love as place to find great plants and the tools and advise to help them grow.
But we do not show up every day in rain, sleet, snow or ice just to peddle plants.
Our goal is to inspire a love and respect of the natural world, one garden at a time.
Today we inaugurate a man who denies the deepest challenge our world faces – climate change. He denies our need for an environmental protection agency. He denies our commitment to adopt sustainable energy. He even denies our will to live together in mutual respect no matter our race, gender identification, religion or ability. In short he denies everything that we at thicket stand for.
Thicket is a business and not a political organization but today we need to be both because our future depends on it. Today we stand with the Millions of people who are pouring into the streets to protest Donald Trump. Please join us!
We are closed up for the Winter but busy getting ready for next season. We officially open February fourth but you can catch us at thicket (by appointment) as we’re busy making plant divisions, pouring through growers lists and drooling over seed catalogs.
This season we have so many new and unusual plants coming in. I collected some amazing Tulips, Fritillarias and Jonquils in The Netherlands last Spring, they are potted up and waiting for warmer weather to emerge. We have also sourced some great new houseplants. My obsession with strange and lovely ferns was cemented in Florence last Summer when I visited the Hortus botanicus and their collection of over 250 varieties. It has taken some sleuthing, as well as a little cajoling and even a little pleading but we have some very cool ferns coming in this March.
The days are getting longer and Spring is on it’s way!
