Welcome to Acer Gardens
We are a family owned and operated retail nursery on 18 acres in Deep River, CT. Acer grows over 1,800 varieties of perennials and annuals, as well as numerous varieties of shrubs and trees. We are known for our extensive selection of Japanese Maples, hence the Latin name Acer.
Just like the plants in your garden, Acer Gardens takes a short break for the winter. The greenhouses and nursery are closed, and will reopen for retail sales the last week in March, Until then, keep dreaming of spring!
If you need to contact us, our office is open.
