New Bulbs for Spring 2015

Each season, our garden experts choose a selection of new varieties to carry and all of us here at American Meadows get really excited to see the list. This year, the excitement level was met with an amazing selection of vibrant, unique summer-blooming bulbs that we’ll all be adding to our landscapes this spring.

Fill your Garden in with Annuals!

This time in the season, much of the garden has filled in and we know what will be growing where. Now is the perfect time to identify the empty spots in your garden and fill them with Summer-Blooming Bulbs such as Dahlias, Gladiolus, Calla Lilies and more. Added bonus: If you are in Hardiness Zone 8 or above, these Bulbs will come back year after year in your garden!

Small Spaces, Big Statements!

Whether it’s planting in containers, city gardening, or trying to squeeze those extra few plants in to an existing garden, many gardeners are looking for unique ideas for their small outdoor spaces. What many don’t realize is that there is a large, diverse variety of plants that will thrive in smaller spaces and, when planted together, make a huge statement in any outdoor space!

Cut Away!

One of the greatest rewards of a garden bursting in blooms is being able to cut a few of your favorites to bring inside for a gorgeous summer bouquet, or to give to a lucky friend. Those who can’t seem to have enough fresh flowers should consider planting a cut flower garden – It makes cutting blooms guilt-free!

Have Winter Blues? Think Spring Blues!

Although some claim that there can never be a true “blue” flower, gardeners and growers have worked to come as close to blue as the human eye can tell. Blue flowers illuminate in the sunlight and provide a striking, contrasting statement with their green foliage. In the spirit of planning for spring, I have highlighted some of my favorite blue flowers to try this season.

Understanding Your Hardiness Zone

One of the most common questions our gardening team receives is, “Which hardiness zone am I?” This question is extremely important for many reasons; it is the first step in understanding what, and when, to plant in your area.

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.
