Weston Nurseries is pleased to announce that we have acquired Stonegate Gardens in Lincoln Massachusetts. This will be our 4th garden center operation along with our Hopkinton, Chelmsford, and Hingham locations. We are currently transitioning the existing space and expect to open soon.
Stonegate Gardens was run by Lynne Bower-MacDowell for the past 25 years and her husband, Bruce MacDowell built the greenhouse, barn, and the beautiful layout that it is today. Sadly, Lynne passed away this past March. Bruce contacted us later in the year and gave us the opportunity to run the garden center operation under the Weston name. We are thankful to Bruce for giving us this opportunity and we are very excited with the possibilities that lie ahead with this terrific location in the Boston suburbs.
Below is Bruce’s announcement to Stonegate customers:
As we end 2023, I would like to thank all of our friends and customers of Stonegate Gardens for your friendship and patronage.
My wife Lynne and I started Stonegate over 25 years ago. We built it with love and passion. As you may know my wife Lynne passed away on March 19, 2023. Lynne was greatly responsible for the uniqueness and success of Stonegate over the years. After much heartfelt thought we have made an arrangement with Peter and Karen Mezitt of Weston Nurseries to operate the garden center.
The Mezitt Family has successfully run Weston Nurseries for over 100 Years. Lynne and I have been good friends with Peter and Karen for many years. We wanted to put Stonegate in the hands of a family with multiple generations of wisdom and experience operating nurseries and garden centers.
As of January 1, 2024, Stonegate Gardens will become Weston Nurseries. We thank you for being loyal customers for many years and hope you’ll continue being customers of Weston Nurseries.
Have a happy and healthy New Year.
Lynne and Bruce MacDowell
Our plans are to continue the legacy that Lynne and Bruce created while also creating some different features and product selection that we feel will appeal to past customers and others who live in the nearby communities. We look forward to announcing an opening date soon after we accomplish some of our goals and objectives this winter.
Thank you and wishing all of you the best in 2024!
Peter and Karen Mezitt
