Effortless Blooms

Although weeding, watering, staking and all the other get-your-hands-dirty aspects of gardening are therapeutic to many, some gardeners are looking for an easy-to-plant, easy-to-grow solution for a space filled with blooms. Fortunately, there are quite a few varieties of seed, bulbs, and plants that require little care, staking, and are disease-resistant.

Gardening by Moonlight

Most gardeners enjoy the fruits of their labor in the day, watching the sun shine on their gorgeous plants. But why stop there? Plant a Moonlight Garden and enjoy your garden at all hours of the day – combine show-stopping, white flowers with fragrant blooms and create an evening oasis to sit back, relax, and enjoy the splendor of moonlight reflecting off your flowers.

Reflecting on Fall: How Did Your Garden Grow?

After you have finished all of your fall planting, it is always a great idea to reflect on your garden from the past season and evaluate how everything did. I like to take “inventory” of everything I planted in the spring and summer and keep a garden journal with their progress. It is important to note what did well and what may not have met your expectations. For those plants that grew, bloomed, and wowed – make note to plant more next spring.

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.
