Finally Getting this Garden Right!

I live in a small city and am fortunate enough to have a yard and garden (albeit small) to tend to. There is one bed in the back part of my yard that is always changing and evolving with each season, that I’m never quite satisfied with. This season, that’s all going to change!

White Blooms Go with Everything!

Looking for a versatile color to unite your garden beds? White-flowering plants not only add an elegant feel to your garden and help to cool it down, but also illuminate in the moonlight, creating a romantic glow in the evening hours. You can find almost any plant in white, so gardeners have a large variety to choose from.

Did you Know Fall is the Perfect Time for Planting?

As the summer winds down, it’s never too early to start thinking about fall and what additions or subtractions you might want to make to your garden. More and more people are learning that fall provides a “second season” of planting and that it’s not just about maintenance and clean up in the garden!

Spring Blooms in Vermont

Spring in Vermont is hard to predict, but the past few weeks have been sunny almost every day with a beautiful, light breeze. This is not only good for us gardeners (although we’ve been feverishly watering), but has also quickly brought to life many of our Spring-Blooming Bulbs, early-blooming Perennials, trees and meadows. I took a quick walk around the neighborhood today and captured several of my favorite plants. I hope you enjoy!

Planning for Fall – What’s New for 2013

Many of us are lucky enough to be experiencing the budding and blooming of Fall-Planted Bulbs all across the country. I took a trip to Boston, Massachusetts a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised that spring is in full swing there! Gorgeous Cherry Blossom Trees cascading over the streets, cheerful Daffodils blooming in every garden bed and green growth everywhere! It really gets me thinking and starting to plan my garden for next spring.

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.
