Strolling through this site, we hope you’ve enjoyed lessons and love from our Akronside garden, located at the edge of Akron, NY. We love to share what we’re learning about essential oil distilling, and we hope you’ll take advantage of the chance to purchase gifts derived from the garden.

If you can stop by Akronside, pause to enjoy the new lavender bed (full of Phenomenal lavender) just past the drive, then enter through the rose arbor. Our roses are chosen for either scent or hardiness. You’ll be amazed by the scented David Austin roses such as Gertrude Jekyll, Princess Alexandria of Kent, or Boscobel. The Texas Earthkind roses require far less care, and are just as gorgeous. Further in, a bed awash in lemon verbena and borage delights your senses. Our teeny black KitCat is likely to greet you as she slinks from her favorite bed of Munstead and Hidcote lavender, and you’re welcome to sit in the shade to enjoy yarrow waving under the trees or the circular bed devoted to phlox. From these garden delights, we offer scented products and the joy of essential oil distillation.

For a unique and special gift that’s sure to bring a smile, check out the whimsical needle-felted fairies that have flown in.
