    Garden #2 The Fornari Garden at Poison Ivy Acres, Sandwich, MA
    Visit this 2.5 acre property on Lawrence Pond, gardened by Dan and C.L. Fornari. Along the road see the "dry garden" of drought-tolerant plants. Next is a cutting garden cutting garden just above the large vegetable beds. In addition to the in-ground vegetables, you will see Smart Pots planted with potatoes and winter squash. Peak into the solar-heated seed-starting shed where the Fornari's start their basil, tomatoes and annuals. Discover the assortment of annuals and perennials in the flower gardens that surround the house. Stop under the shade of the grape arbor where many of the Fornari's houseplants are at "summer camp." See the herbs that are grown just out the kitchen door, and take enough flower photos to fill your Instagram feed for months.
