Burnett’s Blog

Our huge garden center is filled top to bottom with the ALL of plants you want! Consider us your “what if” and “why not” wonderland.

Burnett’s is southeastern Connecticut’s favorite full-service, independent garden center for a reason.

We’re not your average garden center — we’re also a grower! Right here at Burnetts, we raise a significant selection of our own annuals, including our coveted hanging baskets (we’re kind of known for those).

We also offer a huge selection of perennials, shrubs and trees grown at our 85-acer, family-owned Canterbury Horticulture farm.
