We've been working our land for over 20 years, maintaining what NATURE has provided us--over 7 acres of native plants, eye-catching ledge outcroppings, and a waterfall-adorned stream meandering through our woodlands, each offering their own quiet, beautiful spaces. Interconnected with these are garden beds filled with blooms and a Pick-Your-Own flower field that we NURTURE. In addition, we have created natural plays spaces for children in the landscape.
Petals in the Pines first opened to the public in 2010, and we haven't stopped growing! What you'll find here is a unique blend of the native landscape with cultivated gardens--a place you'll want to immerse yourself in. The result is an experience that many call "magical!"
At Petals in the Pines, our MISSION is two-fold: first, to enable children of all ages, from infants and toddlers to teens, to experience NATURE in a safe and NURTURING environment; second, to encourage and educate adults in their personal exploration of the natural world that surrounds them.
For our younger visitors, we have opened natural "activity centers" to help them build, create, move, sing, play make-believe, experiment, learn and enjoy. By connecting children with nature, this type of unstructured play and activity helps increase concentration, develop creativity and problem-solving, and relieve stress.
For grown-ups, we tap into our decades of knowledge and experience to offer accessible opportunities for individuals and groups to appreciate and learn about our extensive collections of native and cultivated plants.
It's 7 acres of NH paradise. . . . my 9 year old nephew enjoyed the day here as well. I think there's plenty of activities to satisfy all ages, from 3 years old to 80+ years old. . . . And a special thanks to the "on-site owners" for sharing their magic. their knowledge, their Natural Wonderland, with the rest of us!

We had our daughter’s 6th birthday here recently and it was magical. The owners are kind, amazing with children, and so pleasant to work with. They really made the day special for my daughter and her friends. Their property is lovely and full of unique activities and treasures that the kids love. We will definitely go back again!
