Winston Flowers and Garden

Even if you don’t have a garden, Winston’s supersized Newton lot is worth a visit. A stroll through the main shop and the verdant, two-acre complex of greenhouses and outdoor plots is a great escape from city sidewalks and suburban sprawl. The enormous array of annuals, perennials, pots, and garden accessories can inspire anyone’s thumb to grow a bit green.
