Homegrown For Unique Plants

Not everybody will be going to barbecues and beach parties this weekend; serious gardeners have other plans. Homegrown owner Russell Stafford was out in the sales yard today when I dropped in to survey the rare and unusual plants on offer this spring, and everything was lush and healthy. Russell propagates many hard-to-find plants, mostly from seed, mostly native, many shade-lovers.

Some inconveniently timed construction blocked traffic on the street recently! It was fine today and there is always parking on Alfred Stone Road, so try again.

Follow Homegrown on Facebook where he has great photos of the unique plants on offer. Also IG.

As always, there are plant-themed gifts and pots in the charming shop. Russell identified a few of his favorites last spring when we stopped by. I’m sure he has new ones to recommend.

Homegrown is just over the city line into Pawtucket. Travel all the way north on Blackstone Boulevard and turn right on Alfred Stone Road.

(And they will be open tomorrow, Sunday, as well as Monday, Memorial Day.)

Homegrown, 1 Alfred Stone Road, Pawtucket, 401.541.2880, (directions)
