As Jessica Carroll explained to WFSB, her gardening center was never originally meant to be a business. It actually started out as a scenic storage space for a landscaping company she started with her brother. The two chose a pond-flanked plot of land in Marlborough as the storage grounds for their plants, and their well-tended blooms began to attract admirers, particularly in the summer. Soon after the siblings decided to help these visitors cool off, so they opened an ice-cream stand.
These days, visitors to Jessica's Garden can take home their own plants, composts, and soil enhancers such as microscopic nematodes, rather than simply admiring the Carrolls’. Bass leap from the pond's waters, which are also used to nourish shrubs, flowers, or thirsty camels returning from desert jaunts. A rope swing and outdoor picnic tables make an ideal setting in which to enjoy the ice-cream stand's 21 flavors. As an added draw, the stand also serves lobster rolls in both the hot buttered and chilled mayonnaise and celery variety.
