Did you know that our regional mixtures have about 300,000 seeds per pound?Â That’s a lot of wildflowers.Â 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.Â This is one of the many reasons why our regional mixtures are so popular.

As we welcome the arrival of a new year, the team here at American Meadows wants to take a moment to thank all of our loyal customers for their support in 2013. The year included many firsts as we continued to focus on offering the hardiest gardening products and the information you need to succeed.
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!
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.
Now that we’re into November, it’s extremely important (if you haven’t already) to prepare your garden for the winter months. This doesn’t need to be a weekend-long affair, simply follow a few easy steps and your garden will be ready to hibernate (along with you) for the winter and come back next spring stronger than ever!
