Create a Blooming Spring With Little Water

Drought and limited water resources have become a challenge for gardeners throughout the country. However, this does not mean that gardeners with limited water resources cannot enjoy beautiful blooms – It is all about choosing the right plants. Fall-Planted Bulbs such as Daffodils, Tulips, Allium, Crocus, and more are extremely drought-tolerant and only require initial watering when they are first planted, producing gorgeous blooms come spring.

Why Wildflowers?

So you’ve been thinking about planting wildflowers for a while. Well, now is the time! Fall is a great time to plant wildflowers as it mimics the natural cycle
of flowers that drop their seed at the end of the growing season.

Our Amazing Amaryllis

Those who purchase our Amaryllis bulbs are some of our most loyal customers. Our bulbs are not only guaranteed to grow, are jumbo-sized and some of highest-quality available, but produce magnificent blooms on multiple shoots. We could gush on and on about our Amaryllis but will let our customer’s photos and reviews tell the story for us. Enjoy!

Green Manures? I Don’t “Fallow”…

Often as the growing season slows and we have been enjoying the fruits of our labor we forget to give back to the garden. We pull plants when they stop producing and leave the garden untouched until it is time for the fall yard cleanup. We rake leaves, pickup sticks and maybe till some leaves and compost into the garden to “put it to bed”. But what about that period of time between when you pulled your plants and you get to the traditional fall work?
