Create a Blooming Spring With Little Water

Drought and limited water resources have become a challenge for gardeners throughout the country. However, this does not mean that gardeners with limited water resources cannot enjoy beautiful blooms – It is all about choosing the right plants. Fall-Planted Bulbs such as Daffodils, Tulips, Allium, Crocus, and more are extremely drought-tolerant and only require initial watering when they are first planted, producing gorgeous blooms come spring.

Is it a Butterfly? Is it a Daffodil?

Butterfly Daffodils are a favorite in the spring garden for their stunning double centers, frills, and unique color combinations that resemble a butterfly. They are a knockout both in the garden and cut for spring bouquets. Try planting a group this fall for an elegant, whimsical show in mid spring.

Update: Planting Fall Bulbs in our City Garden

This past fall, my friend Jintina and I layered hundreds of fall bulbs in our city garden bed. We patiently waited throughout the winter months and once spring came, along with it came a rainbow of beautiful blooms! I captured pictures of as many different blooms as I could (there were new varieties blooming each day) and am happy to report that our layered planting was a gorgeous success!

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.

Renewing Hope: Re-Planting a Vermont Town

Flowers symbolize hope, new beginnings, and renewal – everything that encompassed the town of Wilmington after Tropical Storm Irene. I knew that I could use my resources as an employee of American Meadows, and the generosity of its owners, to help bring life back into the devastated community.

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.
