Create a Spectacular Tulip Show in Containers

The classic, colorful blooms of Tulips in early spring are often the most anticipated event for the enthusiastic gardener. However, many shy away from planting these early-blooming beauties because of hungry deer or limited space.

Growing Vegetables – Can You Contain It?

It is a common misconception that you need a large plot of land to grow your own delicious vegetables. All you really need are sufficient containers, sunlight, and lots of love!

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.
