The Maine Accent Gardens are tucked away in the outskirts of the charming city of Hallowell, Maine. In May and June we open our gardens to the public and offer perennials, annuals and herbs. Garden enthusiasts enjoy seeing a mature plant in a garden setting before they decide on a purchase.
We always start the planting season with a good assortment of seedlings. We also have a nice selection of hard to find annuals like old fashioned sweet peas, many sunflower varieties and flowers for drying. We have a lovely selection of day lilies and hosta. Our perennials are field grown to ensure regional hardiness. We are pesticide free and use organic practices.
Too busy to fill your window boxes. Drop them off. we'll fill them for you. It's that easy!
Last Spring we started using Bill's Perfect fertilizer. An organic alternative to Miracle Grow. Judge for yourself! Bill's is available at The Maine Accent and it doesn't harm the bees!!
