This Saturday is “THE Saturday” at Gossett Brothers Nursery. Besides the Farmers Market, Gossett Brothers is privileged to once again host the annual Mothers Day weekend fundraiser for the Lewisboro Garden Club. If their was ever a time to come in and get your garden questions answered, this would be it. On Saturday all the members of the Lewisboro Garden club will be working with the Gossett staff to help you choose the best annual, perennial, shrub or tree. It is a once a year event that is not to be missed!
Traditionally, this is one of the busiest weekends of the summer season and all week long we have been receiving deliveries. The Nursery is stocked to the gills with a great selection of plants, shrubs and trees. So whatever you are looking for, come on in this Saturday and browse every nook and cranny of the Nursery with the members of the Lewisboro Garden Club to find some of the best of natures offerings.
The Lewisboro Garden club is also sponsoring a bake sale on Saturday. Homemade pies, cakes, cookies and other tempting treats will be on sale. One of the great services that the Lewisboro Garden Club provides to the community is the “Golden Roads” program. This program, which has been a great success for the past 7 years, encourages homeowners and businesses to line their properties with daffodils. The Garden Club also coordinates mass plantings of daffodils along public roadways and this year they will plant thousands of plants. You can help support the Golden Roads program, and help beautify our town roads. Just ask any of the Lewisboro Garden Club folks for more information.
Remember, candy is dandy, but plants have zero calories! So come and find the perfect plant for Mom and bring her home some of the best organic and freshest food in Lewisboro.

I came to gardening through food,” Anita Dafonte says.The daughter of a Greenwich pastry chef, she grew up in the floury realm of cakes and breads, quiches and hors d’oeuvres. As Anita’s cooking skills progressed, it dismayed her to learn that the vegetable varieties she sought for her recipes, the flavor-packed heirloom tomatoes and diversity of peppers, were unavailable. She decided to grow them.
Now an avid gardener who specializes in unique varieties of vegetables, Anita travels the Northeast giving lively and informative demonstrations on how to create a vegetable garden that’s both beautiful and productive. She discusses which varieties of tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and other vegetables to grow for certain dishes, how to build a rich, organic soil, the tools you’ll need and how to incorporate flowers among your vegetables for color and beauty.
Anita, who lives and gardens on five acres in Newtown, is the Sales Director for Coast of Maine Organic Products. She graduated last fall from the Maine Compost School of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. She was the Sales Manager for many years of Fine Gardening and the former Kitchen Gardening magazines.
