It seems like this summer has been nothing but closures, detours and road
work in the Norton/Barberton area. This work will continue with a ramp
closure and additional road work on 261. Detour signs will be posted but it
will be a bit more difficult to get to the nursery if coming from the East.
The westbound exit ramp to Cleveland Massillon Road from I-76 will be
closed until further notice. The detour posted is a bit out of the way.
So, we suggest if you are coming from the East, we suggest taking the Barber
Road exit (#16), turn North (left) onto Barber Rd until it ends at Wadsworth
Rd. (Rt. 261). Then, turn West (left) onto Wadsworth Rd. travelling a few
miles to teh traffic light at Cleveland-Massillon Rd. Turn left onto
Cleveland-Massillon Rd. The nursery is just 1/4 mile up on the left. To
return east bound I-76, teh ramp from Cleveland-Massillon Rd is still open.

2017 With the autumnal equinox, the fall season officially begins
although no one would notice because of the summer like temperatures of this
past week. Leaf color is beginning to appear and it remains to be seen
whether or not it will be as intense as usual due to the mini-drought of at
least the past 6 weeks.
Chrysanthemums are now “showing off their skills”
in a blaze of color so typical of the fall season and the blaze is as
intense at the mum gardens in Barberton as the last minute preparations are
made for the festival beginning at
tomorrow and ending on late
Sunday afternoon. This 26th year of the Mum Festival has seen
the growth of not only the mums but the growth of visitors from all over the
state and even out of state as everyone enjoys the events centered around
Lake Anna and the mum garden.
