Pixie Perennials, a private garden at 200 Nod Hill Road, will be open for visitors Sunday, May 6, from 10 to 4, as part of the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days Program.  

Terraced perennial gardens with a wide variety of unusual plants surround a 1740 homestead set on four acres overlooking a reservoir, home to mature and specimen trees. A small rock garden tucked into the exposed ledge leads to a fish pond. A frog pond is nestled in between rows of flowers.

Inside the barn will be a pop-up boutique featuring artisans:


  • Ellen Hoverkamp —photographic note cards, prints, scarves and books;

  • Hello Natural by Charlotte Mayer — goat milk soap;

  • Little Hen Redux -earrings, prosperity hens


Also for sale will be perennials, trees and  shrubs that were grown on the property.

The garden will be open rain or shine. Admission is $7, children under 12 are admitted free. Proceeds benefit the Garden Conservancy.

Visitors should either park in the driveway, or on Spruce Meadow and walk the short distance to the garden. Please do not park on Nod Hill Road for safety reasons.  Additional information can be found at https://bit.ly/2KtIsZC
