Nasami Farm in Whately is a part of the New England Wildflower Society which also operates The Garden in the Woods in Framingham. Here are the greenhouses that propagate the native plants that are then sold at Nasami and The Garden in the Woods to gardeners, landscapers and towns who are working to preserve local biodiversity. I have gotten many healthy beautiful plants at Nasami and I recommend them. Barrenwort as a groundcover, pagoda dogwood as a ornamental part of the new Windbreak, a penstemon and lobelia cardinalis for the border. All beautiful.
Nasami is open now for fall planting season. Hours are Thursday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm until October 2.
If the rain stops long enough to do some planting, showers and cool weather will allow new plantings to settle in nicely before the winter.
The New England Wildflower Society also offers a full roster of classes from an introduction to botany to designing a mixed border to foraging for wild food. Click here for a downloadable version of their course catalog.
Also, soon we will be thinking about the gift giving season. Wouldn’t you like a membership that will give you so many benefits, nursery discounts, reciprocal admission to other botanic gardens and more, OR do you know someone who would like a membership. For full membership info click here.
