We feel so fortunate to have the fabulous Broken Arrow Nursery in our community. Owner Richard Janes is a world authority on our state shrub, the moutain laurel and, we are proud to say, an honorary member of the Garden Club of New Haven. The website is full of information, the nursery holds excellent workshops throughout the year and, if you can, you should visit during the growing season. You would be hard pressed to find a more exciting collection of unusual shrubs and perennials.
