Reed’s Country Way Nursery and Florist

On a bucolic pond in Hingham, you’ll find the answers to every horticultural question you’ve ever thought to ask—and some you probably haven’t. Reed’s employs a team of garden experts to educate customers with thumbs of even the palest green about hanging baskets (a particular specialty) and their assortment of more than 600 varieties of perennials. If your car isn’t already loaded down with flats, stop at the garden shop on the way out: With a selection of candles and pottery, you can’t go wrong.
