'Winter is my time
- Diana Hall
Owner, Botanical Treasures
Botanical Treasures was born out of a desire to have access to ornaments and plants for the upstate gardener.
I love all aspects of working in the garden.
While my hands ache to feel the soil and I miss the smell of earth, winter is my time to dream. In the spring, I work to bring those dreams alive by developing and decorating my garden, with unusual vegetables, annuals and perennials. I also search for ornaments from ceramicists, sculptors and antique shows. Then, I carefully arrange compositions throughout the garden creating magical vignettes that invite the child within us to dream.
I have been gardening since I was a child. My mother (an artist herself) encouraged a love of abundance and an appreciation for color that influenced the way I garden today. I studied painting, drawing and silversmithing at SUNY New Paltz, in New Paltz NY in my younger years and later gardened for 10 years before moving to Franklin NY in the 80’s when my passion came alive.
Franklin Garden Club (member for 10 years)

Every year I try out new plants that peak my curiosity and sell them at the Franklin Farmers Market on Sundays between 10:00am to 2:00pm. I look forward to meeting you there, even if it is just to chat about gardens and such.
While visiting, look around….Franklin is a beautiful town with antique shops, a vintage clothing store and a great Middle Eastern restaurant named the Tulip and the Rose. In addition, the Franklin Stage Company offers great award winning summer performances.
I highly recommend attending. . .
I offer consultation and garden design. If you have a residential or commercial project you need help with please feel free to contact me.
