Rain or shine, Snug Harbor Farm in Kennebunk, Maine offers up all your go green gardening needs. Snug Harbor Farm was established in 1991 as a unique nursery specializing in hard-to-find plants. “The foundation of the farm’s designs spring from the classic tradition of the English garden reimagined as the New England Farm Garden. Today, there is a team of gardeners, designers, and enthusiasts who work to take care of some of the loveliest properties in Southern Maine while nurturing the 19th Century farm that is home to Snug Harbor into the 21st century. The current incarnation includes five greenhouses, a nursery, a lifestyle-driven boutique and offers services including landscape design, fine gardening, and event design.” Source Snug Harbor.
Snug Harbor Farms is Maine’s go-to place for all things topiaries too. A full greenhouse dedicated to just topiaries sits on the back of the property off to the left. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and plant care guides are included with each purchase.
What are topiaries? Topiary is the horticultural practice of training perennial plants by clipping the foliage and twigs of trees, shrubs, and subshrubs to develop and maintain clearly defined shapes, whether geometric or fanciful. Source, Wikipedia.

I chose this rainy spring day in early May to visit. It was a perfect day to drive up the coast and spend the day shopping throughout Kennebunk. Topped off with one of Maine’s finest lobster rolls!

Do you Collect or Garden with Terracotta Pots?
Snug Harbor has its own line of terracotta pots that have me doing my happy dance. Weathered, covered in green moss, and paired with a beautiful go green topiary, succulent, or Lemon Cypress. Just Wowza!
Just look at all that chippy, rustic goodness!

Ah – Kennebunkport was one of my mother’s favorite places to go. Both my sisters have been there (they lived in Connecticut at time so not a huge deal to go there with them, as I am in mid Ohio.) So today being Mother’s Day it was a great day to read and watch this neat post.
OI love those topiaries! My hubs got me an unusual lavender tall huge topiary for Mother’s Day. I used to have a gorgeous rosemary one but I killed it one very hot summer when I wasn’t feeling well and let things go too long. (boo hoo. still kicking myself.)
Thanks for the smiles. It snowed just a little northeast of me last night – and the world was covered in the white stuff. So weird.
Hope you have had a nice weekend.
Thank you kindly for dropping by today Michele. Topiaries can be so hard to keep at times. I’ve killed my fair share too. But I’m trying them out again, as I adore them too. Happy Mother’s Day!
Ann, what a fun outing! I love topiaries and anyone of those would be welcome in my home.
I would love it if you would add this fun post to my Friday with Friends link party.
Thank you so much, Rachelle, I will definitely drop by!

I love the little garden cabinet. I have a cabinet painted in the same shade of green. It was in my home as a child and it has moved with me five times over the last 45 years. I have painted it a different color each time to go with its new location…cream to barn red to Williamsburg blue to the pale green and now it will be a Williamsburg yellow(having taken four years to decide on its new color I am painting it this week) in our house in VA. Both the cabinet and I are hoping this is our last paint job! I visited Vermont and Maine once and loved it so I so enjoy reading your blog.
Thank you so much Cindi! Your cabinet sounds wonderful. I have one too my father made for me and I’m always painting it too😃
