Christmas

At Natureworks, we do Christmas…NATURALLY!

We LOVE the holiday season at Natureworks. Starting in November, the inside and outside of our store is transformed into a wonderland of fresh greenery, berry branches, cones, pods, and embellishments.

When you walk into Natureworks at Christmas, the first thing you notice is that it smells wonderful! The scent in the air comes from REAL greenery. Our design team is always hard at work in the back room making wreaths, swags, and filling baskets with greenery.

Wreath with pine cones and a large red bow.We are famous for our all-natural designs. Nancy grows many of the unusual evergreens that we sell and use in our arrangements on her own property. Other unique greenery is harvested by our landscape crews or sourced from local nurserymen.

To assure long lasting freshness, our greens are dipped in WiltPruf, an all natural anti-dessicant spray made from pine sap. This extra step makes a BIG difference as to how long our designs hold up. We dip our roping, swags, and wreaths as well.

We welcome custom orders. We can create matching wreaths and swags for your door and lamp post. Ask about our signature “Fireside Baskets” stuffed with fresh greenery, pine cones, berries, and topped with a lovely bow.  We create pots of fresh greenery, berries, and bows for pots, urns, and windowboxes on your porch or deck. People return year after year to have their holiday decorations custom made by the Natureworks “Merry Elves”.

We feature all-natural cemetery pieces including hand made grave pillows and blankets as well as cemetery pots. We avoid plastic red decorations in favor of real berries, cones, and pods. This provides a tasteful alternative to honor a loved one at the holidays.

We have a large selection of beautiful ribbons available in November and December. Wired ribbons stand up to the weather outdoors and we offer them in narrow and wide widths in many materials including burlap in many colors. We sell all of our ribbons by the yard AND we will make your bows for you too!

We sell Connecticut grown, fresh cut Christmas trees. We sell only firs which are the best choice for long lasting needle retention. We name our trees and choosing a tree is a fun, family affair. On weekends from Thanksgiving on, we have a pot of hot mulled cider waiting for you when you want to warm up.

Inside our store we offer bulbs for forcing, forcing bowls and jars, organic seeds and seed starting supplies, carefully selected gardening books, garden tools and gloves tested and used by our landscape crews, and a wide selection of gifts for gardeners and nature lovers.  Come browse our unique selection of ornaments made from glass, seashells and old-fashioned felt.

A popular item that flies off the shelves in November and December are our little arrangements of greenery. Small pots and baskets are designed to be a quick pick-up item for teachers, thank-you presents, secretaries, and anyone who deserves “a little something special” that is custom made.

In December, we also carry long lasting fresh cut flowers and tender greenery that we use to dress up our arrangements. The selection changes every few days.

Natureworks carries a nice selection of indoor plants that make excellent gifts or to decorate your home or for a party. We have all the latest, most unusual poinsettia varieties, fragrant jasmine , fresh herbs, succulents, Cyclamens, Amaryllis, and Hellebores (the Christmas rose) galore. We will gladly combine these flowering plants with ivies, ferns, and other greenery to create living basket gardens which make long lasting gifts for the winter windowsill.

Outdoors we sell evergreen gardens for your deck, potted Christmas trees, and native cranberry, partridge berry, and wintergreen plants for planters and windowboxes. All of these can later be added to your permanent collection in your yard.
