New Bearded Iris for Fall 2013

Bearded Iris are a staple of the perennial garden, whether you’re in Maine, California, or anywhere in between. We know gardeners are always looking to plant new, unique varieties, which is why we try to carry a new selection of Bearded Iris each planting season to compliment the tried and true favorites.

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.

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.

It’s Time to Sow Wildflowers!

For gardeners in the northern regions of the country, now is the time to sow your wildflowers! I garden in a zone 5 and just finished planting all of my fall bulbs. This weekend I am going to finish the process by sprinkling our All Annual Mixture on top of the bed.

All About Lilies

Besides being wonderfully fragrant, lilies create a spectacular show in any garden. We love them because they are easy to grow, great for planting between existing growth, and are absolutely stunning as cut flowers in bouquets. We want to share more information regarding the different types of lilies – there are more than you think!

The stunning, show-stoppers of winter: Amaryllis

The wonderfully bright, long-lasting blooms that Amaryllis produce are undoubtedly one of the most joyous parts of the winter months. It is a wonderful experience, for both the novice or expert gardener, to see Amaryllis grow and bloom in just a few short weeks.

When is it too late to plant?

A common question every fall is, “when is it too late to plant?” The answer is simple: If you can dig a hole, you can plant a bulb! As long as the ground isn’t frozen, go ahead and plant.
