ROCKPORT (Nov 19): Family owned florist and garden center Hoboken Gardens will celebrate 20 years in business this weekend.
More than 35 years ago, the Farley family in Rockport established Farley and Son Landscaping, a successful business that eventually expanded to include the blossoming garden center and florist shop.

"I am proud to be a lifetime resident of Rockport and to have been fortunate enough to have a successful business and employ many people from the local area," said Dave Farley. "I am happy to have my family, also residents of Rockport, all be a part of our family business. I appreciate all our customers and employees who have helped us be what we are today."
The Route 1 business, which recently gave way to an addition to enhance the front entrance to the building, will host a celebration this weekend.
