When March goes out like a lamb (hopefully), locals will flock back to Williams Nursery & The Gift House on Springfield Avenue in Westfield. Ever since the sprawling family-owned establishment opened in 1920 it has provided the Area with flowers, plants, trees and shrubs sourced from all over the country. Garden supplies and a large selection of gifts for the home are also available. Shoppers say it is a great departure from Big Box stores, offering a pleasant, local experience.

“[It’s] not your commercial or franchise type of nursery, but comfortable and real” said Deb C in a review on Groupon.

A Groupon is currently available: $18 for $30 Worth of Flowers, Shrubs, Gifts and More

If you want a sneak peak of some of the merchandise, check out the owner of Williams Nursery’s Instagram account @davewms (he is best known for his stunning floral photographs).

As they say at William’s, they specialize in “beautifying the local community.”

The garden center occupies 6 ½ gorgeous acres, perfect for strolling.
