Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens delivers daffodils to community recipients - Wiscasset Newspaper
Paxson. “Erika and I have been working together to reach out to local groups within our community here on the Boothbay peninsula and in Damariscotta. We find ourselves in such strange times, but luckily, Mother Nature seems immune.” Indeed, per all reports, the Gardens is bursting with color.
“It saddens everyone at CMBG that we can’t invite our community to see this abundance, so the next best thing is to bring the abundance to the community,” continues Paxson. She and Huber have spent the last few days cutting hundreds of daffodils, filling buckets, and starting deliveries. “So far, we’ve been distributing them to senior living facilities such as Edgecomb Green and The Lincoln Home as well as to essential workers who are taking care of all of us.”
Recent recipients include Hannaford and general stores, Pinkham’s Seafood, Lincoln Health, the Boothbay Region Health Center, and Boothbay Region Elementary and High School cafeteria employees. “We are also distributing daffodils to community members through the Boothbay Region Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, school lunches, the weekend lunch distribution at the YMCA, and customers at Nathan’s Pharmacy,” continues Huber.
Future plans include sharing tulips and other blooms. “We’re so grateful for the people on the front lines,” Paxson says. “And we’re grateful we can do something in return, dropping off these bright yellow thank-you blooms.” With so many worthy recipients, “the list seems to grow every day,” concludes Paxson. “This is such a challenging time for everybody, and we’re just so very happy to be able to bring in a little bit of brightness with some flowers.”
The Gardens will remain closed, due to COVID-19 and out of concern for the safety of the community, until at least May 31. Working in accordance with Governor Janet Mills’ four-stage plan for restarting Maine’s economy, CMBG will reopen when it safely can. Until then, it continues its “CMBG at Home” initiative, a new online collection of classes, tours, blog posts, articles, photos, and Facebook groups, ensuring that garden lovers can grow their knowledge from home.

Don't be fooled by these pretty invasive flowers that are bad for Maine
Maine's southern coast. The Casco Bay area has been hit by it "very badly," Olmstead said, and it has spread east to areas around Damariscotta and Newcastle. But it is on the move.
"Unfortunately, it's making its way inland," she said. "It's been located in Augusta, and people found it in the Sebago Lake region last summer. Because the seed is so small, it's easy to transport."
What to do if you find them
If people notice these plants in Maine, there are different strategies to take, the experts said. If they find them on municipal, state or federal property, they are encouraged to take photos and make a public report on the iMapInvasives website.
"Public reports are super helpful for us to understand where plants are distributed in the United States," Olmstead said.
If the plants are on their own property, people can take a more aggressive approach. According to Jackson, the best thing to do as soon as a homeowner notices a plant they've never seen before is to get it identified. If they can't do so on their own, they can head to their local University of Maine Cooperative Extension office to consult with the horticulturists there. Then, as soon as the plants hav...
