Happy Holidays!

Come on in and see us in our December home in Bristol village next to Almost Home Market on North Street.

Every Saturday in December we host an Open House with Almost Home, with a special Wine Tasting on Saturday, December 12th from 2-5pm to sample bubbly and sparkling Holiday Wines!

Our Christmas Shanty is filled with a wide selection of beautiful hand-made ornaments from Europe and a selection of hand-blown glass ornaments from John Chiles Glass in Cornwall, VT.

We have fresh wreaths and garlands of balsam, pine and a mix of cedar-pine-fraser in several sizes.  We also have numerous loose greens for arrangements including black spruce tips, berried juniper, incense cedar, and silver fir.  Also available- boxwood tree arrangements and boxwood kissing balls, amaryllis and paperwhites.

We can help you with any custom work and we’re happy to ship these Vermont wreaths for you.

We hope you have the time to stop in and enjoy this brief festive time, gather ’round the fire and share in some Holiday Cheer.

Please enjoy the sounds of A French Christmas- Andre Claveau singing “Noel Sans Vous”

the Nursery

March 19, 2009

winter-yard

The Nursery is closed right now- but we’ll be opening on April 15th, weather permitting. Some years, the piles of snow will last into May and we have to get equipment to move them out of the way!

conifer-mound

This area is called “The Conifer Mound”. It’s where we display the conifers for sale. Daphne cneorum blooms below an old crabapple- the fragrance is astounding!

perennial-yard

By the beginning of May we usually have a lot of stock in the yard.

annual-basket

We sell annuals too!

rdg cover trial 32082.jpgWe publish a catalog of our plant offerings every year, though this year we’ll be printing a supplement to our 2008 catalog, rather than an entirely new one. Our supplement is still in the works, but you can peruse our 2008 catalog in the meantime.

Hours for the nursery are 9am-6pm every day once we’re into May. Hours are a little more fluid in April due to weather.

If you’d like to join our email list, please send us your information to info@rockydalegardens.com

This way you’ll be kept apprised of new entries in our blog, and also receive special offers and notices of events. We will be phasing out direct mail communication, so this is the new best way to stay in touch!

If you’re planning a tour of the area, there are many great places to stay and eat. Among them are Almost Home Market– a terrific deli and bakery and the Inn at Baldwin Creek– incredible meals and a beautiful country inn, just down the road.
