Is it a Butterfly? Is it a Daffodil?

Butterfly Daffodils are a favorite in the spring garden for their stunning double centers, frills, and unique color combinations that resemble a butterfly. They are a knockout both in the garden and cut for spring bouquets. Try planting a group this fall for an elegant, whimsical show in mid spring.

Giving Back

In 2010 I got involved in the University of Vermont Master Gardening program and partnered with associate professor Mark Starrett donating hundreds of plants that are now being grown all around campus. He’s been able to keep his students very busy with a variety of projects all across campus!

Or, at least manage the heat. We have been getting calls from gardeners across the country who are worried about their gardens in this severe heat.

Plant Vegetable Seeds Now for Fall Harvest

Many vegetable gardeners are reaping the benefits of their tomatoes, peppers and basil right now in delicious summer meals. Who wouldn’t want to extend their summer vegetable garden for delicious, home grown veggies into the fall months? There are several varieties of vegetables that can be started indoors now, or directly sown outdoors in a few weeks for fall harvest.
