Visit our Nursery during bloom time


Cricket Hill Garden is a specialty plant nursery located in Thomaston, Connecticut, which grows rare and unusual peonies as well as perennial landscape edibles. We are a small family business dedicated to producing the highest quality plants in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Kasha and David Furman founded Cricket Hill Garden in 1989, with a focus on Chinese tree peonies. It was one of the first nurseries in the United States to sell true-to-name varieties of these rare plants. Over the last 25 years, we transformed a rocky, wooded hillside into a 6 acre peony display garden we call Peony Heaven. We have trialed over 500 different cultivars of tree, herbaceous and intersectional (Itoh) hybrid peonies. Today, the cultivars we select to propagate and offer for sale are those which are outstanding in hardiness, vigor, color, form or fragrance.

In 2010, Dan Furman, Kasha and Davidís son joined the business. Together we have worked to increase Cricket Hill Garden's yearly peony propagation program. In the past few years, Dan has taken the lead in diversifying Cricket Hill Garden's offerings to include hardy fruit trees and berries for edible landscaping. In the fall of 2013, we planted a demonstration orchard with Asian pears, pawpaws, persimmons, quinces, heirloom apples and medlars. Our goal is to select and propagate the best varieties and help educate fellow gardeners about these beautiful and useful fruiting plants.

We enjoy sharing the beauty of the garden in bloom and we welcome hundreds of visitors every May and June. We enjoy meeting you ALL. Our work continues because of you, our loyal customers.
