SHERBURNE – Mother's Day is fast approaching and Mountain View Gardens of Sherburne has been very busy in preparation. When driving up, one sees the various greenhouses bursting with color and plants of various sizes, species and uses.
“Travel to Sherburne for the absolute best plants,” said one reviewer on the Mountain View Facebook page.
“I have just about everything,” said owner Tammy Sawyer-Simpson. “From annuals, perennials and bedding plants to specialized hanging plants.”
Sawyer-Simpson also has herbs and vegetables available for sale and offers gift certificates.
“My specialty baskets are my best sellers,” said Sawyer-Simpson. She plants all of the designer and hanging baskets and explained that there is a planning process in order to make sure the baskets are as beautiful as possibvle when they are in full bloom. Many of her hanging baskets are unique in that they are cone shaped.
“Some are weaved in moss and vines. Others are weaved with banana leaf and maize,” said Sawyer-Simpson.
Another reviewer wrote, “This place will make you smile with all the beautiful flowers and her cute decorations.”
This is the sixth year since Sawyer-Simpson opened the business. She explained she was inspired to open Mountain View after experimenting with her own hobbyist greenhouse.
