Green Thumbs and Newport Neighbors Welcome the Mill Street Garden Shop

Spring has sprung in the City-by-the-Sea, and just as the daffodils and crocuses are making their seasonal debut, and so are new shops in and around Newport and Bristol Counties. As this weekend’s warm and wonderful temperatures spread an epidemic of spring fever seemingly everywhere, nowhere did the season seem more fêted than at the grand opening of the Mill Street Garden Shop. Flowering plants, including Phalaenopsis, Hawaiian and Lady Slipper orchids, pepper the shop with doses of vibrant color, while more utilitarian items, like seeds, sphagnum moss and Vermont Compost, ensure well-prepped soil and flourishing plantings. Beautiful handmade pots by artist Ben Wolff of Goshen, Connecticut (as seen on garden-Goddess Martha Stewart’s show) are affordable priced and make a stunning display in the center of the sun-drenched shop (formerly the site of Janet Russo and later, the Luniverre Gallery, which has moved to 146 Bellevue Avenue, where Karen Vaughan used to be).

Stop by the cheerful garden grove at 154 Mill Street in Newport Tuesday through Sunday.

Mill Street Garden Shop, (401) 849-7777
