|Maine’s premier mail-order perennial plant nursery!
Offering hardy Maine grown perennials.
Steve Jones and his parents, Carleton and Maetta, founded Fieldstone Gardens in 1984. Steve was raised on the family’s farm, which past generations used for growing vegetable crops as well as a home to various livestock. Since Steve was old enough to walk he can remember his interest in the plant world and his passion has grown into a successful perennial plant nursery as well as full service landscape design and installation.
The family farm has been passed through four generations and is now a perennial plant nursery facility that has field grown plant material, over 80,000 containerized plants, a greenhouse for annual crops and a one of a kind gift shop offering various unique home and garden related items. Along with that, the Jones family has established an award winning 200 acre tree farm. The total 250 acre property is also home to a large number of collectible trees and shrubs that are planted throughout the landscape.
Fieldstone Gardens prides itself upon offering the newest cutting edge top quality perennials hardy to our zone four location. We propagate a large amount of our plant material by way of division or cuttings throughout the growing season. Fieldstone Gardens is strictly a retail nursery that has a customer base of the local community, as well as full mail-order service that ships throughout the United States. The business’s stunning setting and meticulous landscape has been a popular destination for day-trippers from the entire New England area.
The landscape service has grown into a full service design and installation business that serves the greater Waterville and Augusta area. The primary focus is on residential landscape, but selective commercial work is done on occasion. Fieldstone’s outstanding work has earned the business a reputation in the community of being the best landscape service available. During our peak season we typically employee 16-18 seasonal workers. The off season months are maintained by two full-time employees as well as the owner. Field stock is often supplemented with either peat or our own compost as a top dressing. Depending upon plant/soil needs a granular fertilizer is applied to either field stock or display beds. All field stock is maintained by way of natural rain water. The containerized plant material is maintained with drilled well water and an irrigation system. Nursery stock is maintained by selective pruning as the growing season progresses to maintain a fresh healthy containerized plant. Each fall, field stock as well as containerized material is cut back and the foliage is composted. All material is grown in either a five inch square, three and a half inch square container, or field grown. The exception is Peonies, which are grown in three gallon containers as well as in the field. Our shipping season begins typically in mid-April depending upon snow melt. We will continue to ship perennials through the spring until we feel the heat will become a negative factor for shipping, which is usually around the middle of June. Shipping resumes in the fall, typically mid September and continues through the first part of November. Field stock is typically dug in the fall with the exception of Daylilies which are dug throughout the growing season. We invite you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram at @FieldstoneGardens and #FieldstoneGardens. Seasonal Hours: April-October, 7 Days a week 9am-5pm. Happy Gardening. Steve & the entire Fieldstone Gardens Staff.
