New Haven periodical The Daily Nutmeg, this month, published an article on the history of the mountain laurel. The staff of Broken Arrow Nursery feature in the piece, which offers interesting and useful background on the popular Connecticut shrub.
Hartford Magazine recently did an article on trees and shrubs, and how to approach the decision of what to plant. Included is some expert advise on considerations of when different plants are in bloom, and how that affects their role in a broader design.
This week, BAN's Richard Jaynes was interviewed on WTNH about the Hamden tradition of visiting Broken Arrow Nursery for a Christmas tree after Thanksgiving. It was a great opportunity to show the BAN Christmas trees, and for Richard to share some tips about how to pick a Christmas tree. Broken Arrow Nursery has been providing Connecticut residents with Christmas trees since 1947.
Our pawpaw tree was named the Notable Tree for October by the Hamden Tree Commission. The distinct tree is located on the nursery grounds at 13 Broken Arrow Road in Hamden, CT.
A Way to Garden.com had a Q&A session with Adam Wheeler.
