Cold and damp may be uncomfortable for us but it's ideal planting weather! These beauties don't mind a little cold - they're used to it. If your soil is draining okay and ready to receive, these are just some perennials (and flowering bulbs) ready for you to plant. Same goes for trees and shrubs!

Hellebores are here. A stunning early bloomer! They do best in moist, well-drained partial shade and the leaf form contrasts nicely with hosta.
Leaves persist into the summer but can be tidied if necessary.

Christmas Season at Wards is the best! They have the REAL Santa, the best Santa! There are activities for the kids to do like feed the goats and the Christmas tunnel and popcorn to eat while they wait... to see Santa. They do an excellent job decorating and it's our favorite place to go every year! See More

We went to 4 stores looking for solar powered holiday string lights. Wards had them plus so much more. Found an amazing tree topper and some very unique ornaments for our tree. Plus my son had an time visiting Santa and feeding the baby animals. Great Job Wards on making holiday shopping fun for the whole family! See More

Ward's has the best selection of garden and indoor plants in the Berkshires. For the last 9 years, I drive 1 hour to Ward's every spring to get the healthiest and best selection of plants. They also ...have so many items that can be purchased as gifts too. If you want unique, Ward's had it. And by shopping at Ward's, you also help support a local small business. See More

What's not to like???
Water where you want it. Among tropical plants perhaps?
More color to set off easy-to-grow succulents.
Sunny late-winter day calls for flowering potted bulbs, don't you think?
