Who knew this beautiful green fringed lavender would be ready to bloom in December?! Thank you to for these and other great plants that keep on giving. Enjoy your "retirement" merry Christmas, and cheers to a safe and healthy new year.
Hey, Francesco! Many of my gardening friends have talked about how sad they are that you’re closing.
My family lived across from you on Ivy St. in the early 70s and you used to play with my son, Mike, in our “tree fort”, which was really just a small platform. I’ve always had great memories of what a great family Tom, Joyce(?), and you were. I wish You and yours great happiness in the future.
Thank you for being a part of our community for so long! You will be missed! But thank you for selling off what you had left! I’m looking forward to planting this oregano and sage!!
Sorry to see you go, Francesco. Thanks for all the good years of quality plants and sundry items. And it as always just plain fun walking around the place. Your dad was someone I will never forget after having moved to Arlington in 1989. He as a constant at the Arlington Farmers Market with all his old-fashioned named plants — heirloom now — he taught me so much about herbs and was happy to answer all of my crazy questions. He had a great mind for all those antiquated and forgotten plants of yesteryear. I moved around a lot but bought my first house in all places, in Chantilly in 1997. How fortuitous for me that you and your dad ended up there as well that same year. I’m so sorry he wasn’t with us long enough. Was happy that you soldiered on and continued in his tradition, bringing the best quality plants to our little corner of the world.
Sending you peace and love in your new adventure. Please keep us posted on the next phase :)
Abernathy and Spencer’s is a great alternative for those of you still searching for a new garden store! Thank you, Debaggio’s, for years of great service and amazing products!
Finally had time to come visit this spring and lo, I read your post. I will miss you all terribly. You filled a special place in my garden and in my heart. I thank you for all the very hard work and lovely plants and vegetables you made available. I wish you the very, very best as you begin your next chapter!!
Have been coming here for years through my parents upbringing and have NEVER been disappointed w/the many plants we’ve purchased. Sad and happy for your years of service that brought bountiful fruits of your labors!!
Best of luck & you will be missed!!
I will miss your fabulous selections of rosemary, lavender, tomatoes, and numerous herbs. Today, I was wondering how the Herb Farm was going to sell anything during our "Stay at Home" requirements. So I went to your website. I read your entire essay there. It is a wonderful story, and very well-written. I watched as your rural Chantilly location was gradually surrounded by residential development. You and your team created a masterpiece every year. I hope you all find happiness in the future. Congratulations for selecting the best possible time to close your small business! Thank you for sticking around for so long!
Annie and I visited DeBaggio's Herb Farm and Nursery this morning and decided to snap each other’s photos. Fortunately for her the biggest bee I’ve ever seen didn’t arrive until it was my turn to sit on the bench. (Which is why I’m on the edge of the bench!) To Annie, all bees are dive bombers like Carpenter Bees, and to put it mildly, she isn’t a big fan. But we bought some wonderful plants for my garden!
Your large Italian parsley was fantastic this past year. This pic taken on Halloween 2018, for scale the adjacent blue pot is 20" tall. We planted next to your winter hardy rosemary in a SE facing foundation bed. We took large bouquets of this parsley to a friend's for Thanksgiving to enjoy liberally in the foods, as garnish, and accented floral boquets, so impressive! I keep cut stems in a bud vase in the kitchen for quick snips, like fresh flowers it lasts for weeks. The parsley continued to flourish even after the Jan.2019 12 inch snowfall. We mulched it well for these current sub freezing temps, but my wager is that after trimming frozen outer leaves, the core plant will flourish again after the thaw. Thanks for great plants!!
This is one of your winter hardy variety of Rosemary, planted spring 2018 in a SE facing foundation bed. This afternoon air temps low 20s, but last night was 11F. The rosemary appears to be handling this weather in stride! Just harvested some for a dinner roasting. Thanks for the wonderful plants!!
Will you still have different types of tomatoes and peppers available on June 3rd?
