Allan Haskell Public Gardens

Posted by on Jan 6, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

A  visit to Allen Haskell’s nursery and greenhouses was like stepping into a tropical garden full of colorful flowers, rows of stately potted topiaries and rare plants unknown to even experienced horticulturists. It was further enlivened by his animated descriptions of the plants and his good natured jabs at his customers and coworkers.

He passed away a few years ago and his property was  taken over by the Trustees of Reservations and turned into a public garden. I recently walked through the park and was pleased to see the work they have done in preserving his life’s work.
