Beauty on the Golf Course

As proud members of the Golf Course Superintendents Association (GCSAA) we’ve been supplying golf courses around the country with our proven wildflower seeds for years. We’ve worked on thousands of projects, from adding color to tee box areas, to helping cut down on mowing expenses by installing wildflowers across the course. We have the solutions!

Update: Beautifying a City Corner with Wildflowers

This spring, I planted our Northeast Wildflower Seed Mix in the greenspace of my city corner. It has been one of my most rewarding plantings — Not only have I had the delight of finding new varieties in bloom each week, but it’s amazing to see (literally) every child squeal with delight walking by, picking their own souvenir.

White Blooms Go with Everything!

Looking for a versatile color to unite your garden beds? White-flowering plants not only add an elegant feel to your garden and help to cool it down, but also illuminate in the moonlight, creating a romantic glow in the evening hours. You can find almost any plant in white, so gardeners have a large variety to choose from.
