Finally Getting this Garden Right!

I live in a small city and am fortunate enough to have a yard and garden (albeit small) to tend to. There is one bed in the back part of my yard that is always changing and evolving with each season, that I’m never quite satisfied with. This season, that’s all going to change!

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.

Did you Know Fall is the Perfect Time for Planting?

As the summer winds down, it’s never too early to start thinking about fall and what additions or subtractions you might want to make to your garden. More and more people are learning that fall provides a “second season” of planting and that it’s not just about maintenance and clean up in the garden!

A Garden in Perkins Cove, Maine

I recently took a trip to Ogunquit, Maine, and realized that collectively, this little seacoast town might have the best gardens I’ve ever seen! In particular, there is one garden tucked between two restaurants in Perkins Cove that is so breathtaking, I had to take some photos to show you all. Even the windowboxes are fabulous! I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Bearded Iris are a staple of the perennial garden, whether you’re in Maine, California, or anywhere in between. We know gardeners are always looking to plant new, unique varieties, which is why we try to carry a new selection of Bearded Iris each planting season to compliment the tried and true favorites.
