Cute place! I bought a bunch of garden fairy items. There is a small cafe, a soap shop, antique items, and a lot of garden art.

This place will take you back years. From the handmade soaps to all the beautiful plants. It is a perfect place to take a book and sit with a hot cup of coffee. Very peaceful.

Went for a girls day out to Summer Past Gardens. The shops were so cute. Got a coach bag used for $20.00 Love the gardens and the pumpkins. The coffee shop was in the middle of the farm and was very scenic.

I visited the amazing "working" garden before they had opened. Now they have grown to be one of my favorite stops. Owner operated and they are charming!

Such a wonderful, relaxing place to spend an hour or an afternoon. It is a visual treat and smells oh so good. The barn and the shop have lovely things for sale. The garden shop sells lovely and unusual plants. They have live music and craft and vendor shows with a shaded patio and coffee stand. The classes are always... More

Great coffee, fabulous selection of plants, wonderful unique gift items, and a garden that would make the Queen of England happy! Don't miss their wonderful art and craft fairs. The vendors are some of the best in the county, and the art is beautiful! The staff is happy and very happy to help or to leave you alone. I've received... More
