Planning for Spring: Think Pink!

The color pink represents so many wonderful causes and feelings, I thought I would take the time to highlight and celebrate it as one of my favorite colors in the garden. Pink blooms, depending on the shade, can create an endless variety of statements in your garden. When the weather gets cold, I start planning ahead for spring and thought I would help you do the same with some of my favorite pink flowers.

Re-Blooming Fun: New Bearded Irises

Anyone who has grown Bearded Iris can’t seem to get enough of them. Their ruffled blooms create an elegant statement in almost any garden and the re-bloomers do what every gardener dreams of – put on a show twice in one season. We all love the classic Bearded Irises that have been around for years, but it is always exciting to try a new twist on an old favorite.

Gardening by Moonlight

Most gardeners enjoy the fruits of their labor in the day, watching the sun shine on their gorgeous plants. But why stop there? Plant a Moonlight Garden and enjoy your garden at all hours of the day – combine show-stopping, white flowers with fragrant blooms and create an evening oasis to sit back, relax, and enjoy the splendor of moonlight reflecting off your flowers.

Understanding Your Hardiness Zone

One of the most common questions our gardening team receives is, “Which hardiness zone am I?” This question is extremely important for many reasons; it is the first step in understanding what, and when, to plant in your area.

Reflecting on Fall: How Did Your Garden Grow?

After you have finished all of your fall planting, it is always a great idea to reflect on your garden from the past season and evaluate how everything did. I like to take “inventory” of everything I planted in the spring and summer and keep a garden journal with their progress. It is important to note what did well and what may not have met your expectations. For those plants that grew, bloomed, and wowed – make note to plant more next spring.
