The following items and more are normally available at the Strawberry Festival, but we will be taking pre-orders this year because the Festival has been cancelled.
The Topsfield Garden Club offers containers, hanging plants, annuals, and a wide variety of heirloom tomato plants and other vegetable seedlings all started in local greenhouses.
The containers are filled with color-coordinated plants for sunny or shady locations. Two sizes are available - 12" and 16" - for $20 and $25 or two for $35 and $50. We welcome orders. We will also fill your own containers. We encourage pre-ordering containers that can be picked up at your convenience.
Hanging plants include purple shamrock oxalis, iron cross oxalis, and nasturtiums. Annuals include elephant head amaranthus, four o'clocks, morning glories, and other old-fashioned favorites that are hard to find in nurseries. Prices depend on the size of the plant.
Vegetable seedlings include heirloom tomato plants, cucumbers, summer and winter squash, corn, green beans, lettuce, and more. Individual seedlings are $2 a plant/2 for $3. Six-packs are $2.
Sun and shade perennials, many "heritage" varieties from Topsfield gardens, are often available, depending on supplies. Prices vary according to the size and rarity of the plant.
