Services & Resources

In addition to growing and selling our own plant material, we offer several unique services and resources to help you with all your garden needs. 

Premium Soil & Mulch
We offer our custom blended screened topsoil, amended with compost to the perfect pH for exceptional plant growth. Available for pickup in half yard and one yard increments or deliveries of  4 yards or more. Our fertile soil requires NO fertilizer for the first year, and  NO lime application for 4-6 years. 
Premium straight compost is available for light applications and topdressing. It is extremely nutrient rich, and requires careful application to avoid plant injury. 
Our double ground hard and softwood bark mulch is directly sourced from a lumber mill in CT. Available for pickup in half yard increments or deliveries of 4 yards or more.
Gift Cards

Need a gift for a friend or family member who loves plants and the outdoors?  We offer gift cards, with no expiration date, that can be used on anything at the Nursery.

Private Workshops

Throughout the year, Acer hosts regular workshops and events for your enjoyment. In addition to our public events, we can schedule private workshops for garden clubs, companies, or group of friends. Contact us for more information and to schedule your event.

Plant Deliveries

Unable to fit your carefully selected plants in your car? No worries, we deliver plants of all sizes for an additional fee. 

Container Planting

Bring in your empty containers and one of our knowledgeable staff will create a custom design and fill it with seasonal color.  You can also select one of our wonderful containers here on-site.
