Soon, the sun will shine more often than not and we can begin lawn clean-ups, landscaping projects and vegetable garden ventures!
For the right supplies and advice, head to Scenic Roots in Sandwich, Hart Farm in Dennisport, or The Farm in Orleans where experts will help you choose perennials, shrubs, mulch, and fertilizer. Country Garden in Hyannis is the place to go for elaborate projects involving aquatic plantings, ponds and waterfalls.
Planting vegetables and herbs in your yard, raised bed or window box is increasingly popular. Local resources for both novice and experienced food growers include Matt’s Organic Gardens in Dennisport for organic fertilizers and compost, and a variety of farmstands, such as Bay End Farm in Buzzards Bay, Crow Farm in Sandwich, Cape Cod Organic Farm in Barnstable or Eldredge Farm in Brewster for seedlings and herbs.
