Welcome To Natureworks!

Our Goal is Two-Fold.

First, we hope to introduce you to Natureworks, a very special retail garden center in Southern Connecticut. Although small in size (we are located on merely an acre of land!) we pack a lot into a little space. Our shop is in a 100-year-old house and is filled to overflowing with unique gifts and gardening accessories in every season. The plant benches in our yard are packed with an amazing variety of fascinating plants, from old-fashioned flowers to the latest cutting-edge introductions.

But the best part of visiting Natureworks are the gardens. Our demonstration gardens surround the store and the retail sales yard. They contain most of the plants that we sell, growing in a style marked with wild abandon. They are a place to stroll and relax as well as a living classroom.
