Welcome to Eartheart Gardens
Dear Gardening Friends,
We are returning to our traditional open garden days—complete with lemonade and ginger snaps—regardless of the weather! In 2014 our gardens will be open two Sundays (June 15 and June 29) from 1-5 P.M.) If it is cold Cliff will open his shop and we can sit inside and look out at the beauties on the hillside.
Choosing the dates to open the gardens is always a challenge. We are familiar with the progression of bloom but every year it becomes more and more difficult to predict the fluctuation of temperatures—when it will be unseasonably warm or cold. Climate change has created many questions for gardeners. Our challenge is predicting peak blossoming of our iris cultivars. That said, please feel free to call (207-833-6905) or email (info@EartheartGardens.com) to check on the bloom before driving out to Harpswell. Remember that the garden is always open for viewing. If you would like to talk with us or order irises at the garden (other than on open garden days) please phone or email us in advance to arrange a convenient time to visit so that we may greet you.
Garden tours are usually scheduled on Mondays and Tuesdays.
We will hold our annual plant pick up day and end of the season sale on Sunday, August 24 from 1-5 pm.
Our gardening work often takes us away from the nursery but you are always welcome to visit with the flowers.
You can download our descriptive catalog or take a stroll trough our website. On our website you will see photos of our iris and you can check for garden event updates, read culture suggestions and review shipping details.
Our 2014 introduction, Lee Walker’s I. ensata ‘Full Maroon Moon’ will be featured on our postcard, on our website and in our catalog.
Thank you for your continuing support of our efforts here at Eartheart Gardens: developing and growing healthy beardless irises and bringing the pleasure of their beauty to you.
