A gift from the former Mary Ellen Ross, the Garden Institute, a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit, is the owner of the former Merry Gardens in Camden, Maine. Our website is There you will see information on two current projects we are working on, and find a bit about us as well.

We own the name Merry Gardens, but it was used, without our permission, by the last person to lease the business after the business was gifted to us in 2002. You are not the only ones that had a bad experience -- they left with the our collection of the geraniums and ivies that Merry Garden was famous for and never paid per the agreement. If you find someone in our area specializing in the old scented and miniature geraniums, those are probably the people you did business with.

I worked at Merry Gardens. It was one of the first places I had a job in the horticultural industry. I loved living in Maine. I planted up all the scented geraniums. I would have apple scented hands. back then, the owner was old. She must've been a hundred now.

I have been dealing with Merry Gardens for 10 years now and have never been disappointed. They have wonderful herbs and luscious scented geraniums. They are very helpful.

I bought all sorts of ivies, all of which worked out quite nicely. They also have herbs, geraniums, vines, and so on.
