maine blue bombs

Specially made as a fundraiser to support McLaughlin Garden & Homestead, the Foothills Garden Club* created Maine Blue Bombs for sale at our Gift Shop!

Although lupines are not native to Maine, many of us were raised with the tale of Miss Rumphius, written by Barbara Cooney near her home of Damariscotta, Maine.

Just like Miss Rumphius, we here at McLaughlin Garden & Homestead seek to make the world a more beautiful place. By scattering lupine seeds, just like the main character, we can share in the creation of a lovely, more valued natural world. 

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, check and cash for purchases!

We also sell Gift Certificates if you want to let your special someone choose their own fun!


garden gift shop

From every gardener's needs to unique gifts and speciality local items, our Gift Shop is open year-round to help you find that special something.

Staffed by volunteers, our Gift Shop Committee works with our Director of Horticulture to search out the best seeds, garden tools, unique plants of all sizes, types and skill levels; as well as local jewelry, candles, greeting cards, kitchen ware, and much, much more!

All proceeds benefit the McLaughlin Foundation - to foster the long-term sustainability and preservation of the Garden & Homestead.
