DARIEN, Conn. — With the days getting longer and the temperatures warming up, it must be planting season.
For three generations, the people of Darien have known where to go for plants: Nielsen's Florist & Garden Shop on the Post Road.
Nielsen’s was established in 1944 by Hilda and Christian Nielsen. Still in its original location in Darien, it is now run by their granddaughter, Sandra Nielsen-Baumann. And in preparation for spring planting, they are stocking the shop with a wide variety of plants.
Nielsen’s also specializes in container gardens for all four seasons. Whether it’s spring, summer, fall or winter, you can enjoy vivid color in your front porch pots all year round. If you would prefer to do them yourself, the staff can help you select the containers for your flowers, the plants themselves and how to put the whole idea together.
