This Mother’s Day, treat Mom to new shrubs or planted flower beds — after all, a well-kept yard and garden make for an inviting home. Or, add cheer to brighten a room with a spring floral arrangement, or give her a CSA subscription to receive Jersey Fresh produce throughout the summer. (As a special treat, prepare a tasty meal together with summer’s bounty!)

Here are several places you can visit or call in the Westfield, Scotch Plains and Cranford areas:

Garden and Yard Centers

Florists

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

If you (or Mom) don't feel like growing your own produce, subscribe to a CSA program to get fresh and locally grown veggies and fruit all summer long! #jerseyfresh

To increase the enjoyment of returning home — for you, your family, your guests — add color and texture with fresh plantings in your garden. Plant (or prune) shrubs, annuals, and perennials to create a home with pleasing curb appeal. Maintain the plantings you have on a regular basis to add to their beauty and longevity — and to extend your initial financial investment. Oftentimes spending time in your garden turns into an opportunity to become better acquainted with your neighbors. Use cut flowers or add flowering plants inside the home to brighten your rooms. #shoplocal
