Garden in the Woods
A walk through the beautiful Garden in the Woods in Framingham, Massachusetts, the showcase of the New England Wildflower Society, will introduce you to the huge range of native plants that grow in our region. You can purchase many of these plants at the native plant nursery on site and also at the society's Nasami Farm Native Plant Nursery in Whately, in the western part of the state. Both locations also offer classes and other events. For more info, go to:

Clever Gardening Technique

Make a Nursery Bed
If you like to rescue forlorn plants and nurse them back to health, or start perennials from seed that need a couple of years to reach good size, you need a nursery bed. This is an area where you can pamper plants until they are ready to join the perennial or shrub border. A section of the vegetable garden is a good possible spot since the soil tends to be well enriched, and you can easily keep a close eye on the plants. With a nursery bed, you'll also have a place to keep those bargain sale plants until your new beds are dug!
