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.

A Gardener's Shop
The Maine Accent offers fresh cut garden flowers all summer long!
Our shop is small but filled with wonderful gifts for the gardener of any age. We have an eclectic selection of tools, unique toys and our own specialty food line. In late summer and fall we offer dried flower bunches and wreathes. We also have books and cards designed by maine writers and artists as well as maine made flaskets, garden hods and beautiful hand crafted needle work.
We always start the planting season with a good assortment of 6 pack perennials at a very competitive price. 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.

~The mother of a bride
Throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall we host different events. In the spring we offer classes to teach gardeners how easy it is to Divide their own plants for maintenance as well as increasing the size of their own gardens. In midsummer, we invite local artists to come to our gardens to paint, draw or write and celebrate "Art in the Garden" . Finally, weather permitting we host a jurried art/craft show the fall. Check back often for updates!
For more information on coming events, please email us at email@example.com Be sure to tell us which event you are interested in.
Herbs have been used in many ways throughout the ages. They can be used medicinally, in dyes and most popularly in everyday cooking. If you have time and space, it's very rewarding to grow your own herbs. At The Maine Accent you can buy herbs as plantings, fresh/cut or dried.
