Mahoney’s Garden Centers

Need some inspiration to kickstart that rooftop garden you’ve always wanted? You’ll find it here. Part hardware store, part botanical garden, Mahoney’s has countless spades and shears, plus all the soil, fertilizer, and pots you’ll ever need. The selection of seeds, hanging plants, flower trays, vegetable plants, herbs, cacti, and even bonsai trees, makes this the most fertile corner of Cambridge.
