Maximize your Blooms this Summer with a Regional Wildflower Mix!

Did you know that our regional mixtures have about 300,000 seeds per pound?  That’s a lot of wildflowers.  In fact not only is it a nice blanket of annual color in the first growing season, it’s a long standing display of perennials for the second and successive seasons.  This is one of the many reasons why our regional mixtures are so popular.

Seed Storage Do’s and Don’ts

A common question we often get is, "Can I store excess seed for next season’s use and if so, how?" Seed storage is not only a great way to save money (it’s cheaper to buy in bulk), but is extremely easy to do!

The Year of the Echinacea

Each year, the National Garden Bureau chooses a perennial to feature as their "Perennial of the Year." They recently announced that 2014 is the "Year of the Echinacea." We are thrilled because Echinacea is one of our favorite perennials and we carry over 20 varieties as seeds and plants.

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!
