Snug's Spring Shopping Guide!

While wrapping up the Boston Flower Show last week we are sure in the mood for spring here at SHF. The weather is hopefully taking a turn for the better now with warmer longer days, so we thought it be a great time to show you some of our spring offerings that will cheer anyone of you fans up! Here is a showcase of just some bright cheery offerings we have here at the farm!

Our classic myrtle topiaries scream spring and add a classy look to anyone's home. We are particular smitten with our globe myrtles pictured above in our own Snug Harbor Farm mossy, terra cotta azalea pot.
You can achieve a really fun look in any room with a elegant terrarium pictured below. We have them created and ready for you in the shop. We also have unique empty vessels and small plants that you can take home and make one yourself.

If you don't have a green thumb; no problem! How about this felted young sapling pictured above. No light, no water is needed and would look great for your spring table or mantle piece. The majolica leaf platter below would look amazing piled high with Easter cookies or cupcakes.

Speaking of Easter we have these adorable plush spring chicks and ducklings. Everyone falls in love with them kids and adults alike! The spring elf as well cheers anyone up once you see him smiling at you in the home or garden.

If your going to be tackling your spring cleaning as we are here in the shop then nothing is better than our line of Cucina products. From glass cleaner and hand soap, to counter top spray we have it covered and the scents are absolutely fresh!
On the topic of soap we have so many choices here in the shop from pine scented, and olive oil based to sea salt and sage. All are top quality and beautiful to your eyes and nose.

If all that cleaning makes you hungry we have many types of off the chart cookbooks like the vegetable themed 'Vegetable Literacy' and the indispensable 'Tender' by Nigel Slater. Both are wonderfully illustrated the pages just make your mouth water.

Now is the time to get out in the gardens! Though to early to plant you could hang one of our one of a kind birch birdhouses. All handcrafted they are made right here in Maine. St. Fiachre is the patron saint of gardening so putting one of the statues below in your bed or border and you will be blessed with success!

At last below the tail tell sign of spring is the fiddlehead. It's too early yet to begin seeing them emerge in your garden, but these ceramic ones will always remind you of the emerging spring.

So we hope to see you at the farm this spring everyone! We are open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and closed only on major holidays. Happy Spring!
