Welcome to Acer Gardens! Bill and Sharon Harris have owned and operated this 18-acre nursery since 1983. Located in Deep River, Ct we now have 9 greenhouses, acres of plant material and beautiful display gardens. The nursery offers a wide range of plants and products which include over 1,800 varieties of perennials, grasses, ferns, vines, annuals, vegetable plants, shrubs, roses, and trees. We feature both pre-planted seasonal containers and a wide selection of empty containers in all sizes. There is an extensive selection of products designed to help you in the garden and we carry both bulk and bagged products. We mix our own blends of fertilizers and grass seeds and an amazing soil/compost mixture. Our lift-gate and dump trucks can deliver any of these products.

The nursery is in a unique location near the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound. Our temperatures are moderated by the Sound and the river valley soil is very fertile. Our climate zone is listed as 6a but many of the plants we sell are hardy to zone 4.

ACER stands for the genus Maples, a group of small and large trees with opposite leaves, cultivated chiefly for shade and ornamental foliage. When we first started this nursery, we specialized in Japanese Maple trees and still feature many unusual maple varieties.
