Our Favorite Flowers

We are often asked by customers, “What is your favorite flower?” Usually unable to answer on the spot as there are just too many to choose from, we have decided to take the time to give everyone on our team the chance to answer this question once and for all.

The joys of planning your spring garden

Our Advanced Sale started today, which made me (gleefully) start thinking about what I am going to do in my garden this spring. My garden is a new space for me and has plenty of beautiful Daylilies, Peonies, Astilbe, Hosta, and other perennials that were graciously planted by the resident before me. This spring, I want to make the garden my own and try as many different varieties of plants as possible.

Daylilies – Fast-growing perennials for just about any application.

In mid-July, my trusty hound Clover and I hopped in the American Meadows truck and headed to the local garden center to buy several bags of fresh compost for the project. Once we returned home, we removed existing vegetation, mixed in compost and planted several different bare root daylily varieties.

How Our Plants are Shipped – And Why

Spring is here, and that means that plants in cold climates are starting to resume growth after spending the winter in a dormant, or resting, state. Here at American Meadows we ship different plants at the time and in the form that causes the least stress to them — and in many cases that means shipping when the plants are dormant. Don’t be fooled by the big, flowering plants at the big box stores. Sure, the look nice now but they’ll soon be past their prime and are often so root-bound that they perish in the garden. Learn more about our plants.

How to Plant Bareroot and Potted Perennials

No matter what you’re growing, one of the keys to a successful garden is getting plants off to a good start at planting time. First, be sure to match the plant to the planting location. For example, if a plant prefers full sun, select a spot that gets at least 6 hours of sun each day. It’s important to plant properly, too. Here are step-by-step instructions for planting bareroot and potted perennial plants.
