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!

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.

August Planting & Care

August is not only a month filled with gorgeous summer-bloomers, but also the perfect time to plant Bearded Iris and Fall-Flowering Crocus. It’s also a great chance to care for your existing Irises by trimming old foliage back and, if mature enough, dividing and re-planting. Below are a few tips on August planting and care to get you busy in the garden!

Update: Beautifying a City Corner

At the end of June, I wrote a blog about planting Wildflowers in the greenspace in front of my city home. Now that it’s the beginning of August, I figured I’d share an update about how the seed is doing.
