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.

NATIVE MOUNTAIN MINT NAMED 2018 PLANT OF THE YEAR BY THE GARDEN CLUB OF AMERICA Pycnanthemum muticum is commonly known as mountain mint, The plant is a native perennial that attracts a diverse abundance of bees, butterflies, moths and other beneficial insects as an excellent source of nectar. The easy-to-grow ornamental plant has noteworthy blue-green foliage, silvery bracts, aromatic leaves and pinkish to white flowers that bloom from July through September. Mountain mint can be grown in full sun or partial shade and in both drought and wet conditions. It naturalizes politely, producing an attractive upright tiered clump that is two to three feet high and wide. The plant helps with erosion control and is resistant to diseases, insect pests, deer, rabbits and rodents. “Mountain mint is a pollinator magnet,” says Lulu Lubbers of the GCA. “Not only is it a lovely addition to a garden, it’s a lively addition – there is such a buzz of activity, it’s like watching wildlife TV,” she says. The plant was nominated for the award by a member of the Garden Club of Madison in New Jersey. Photography credit: Wikipedia
