Ash's is a funny place. A sprawling nursery visible from route 95s just before the Pa border, it is wonderful for the variety of colors for each type of flower they carry rather than the depth of selection which is really the point of Ash's. They are open very early in the spring offering wonderful pansies and don't close until late autumn. In addition to small plants, they have trees, grasses and pots - again not noted for depth of selection. Prices are a little high but if you are worried that your local nursey won't have 10 flats of your favorite petunia, Ash's will and you don't have to worry that you're helping Home Depot put the family folks out of business. If you want something a little more unusual like a selection of 10 varieties of fuschia, try Mazur's on Baker's Basin Road in Lawrence. Ash's also offers a large selection of reasonably priced pre-planted hanging baskets and pots if DIY is not your thing but you'd like to tart up your front stoop or deck.
