Hyacinths: A Treat for the Senses

Hyacinths are some of the most versatile spring-blooming flowers. Their fabulous, colorful blooms bring a sweet fragrance to the garden, pairing well with almost any other spring-bloomer. Hyacinths grow well in pots and can be chilled and forced to bloom indoors in the colder months.

Fall is for Wildflowers!

With warm days and cooling nights, fall presents the perfect time to plant Wildflowers.  Fall planting mimics the natural life cycle when flowers begin to fade, produce and drop seed.  Fall planting can allow for earlier blooms the following spring, which is appealing to anyone that lives in a region with short summers and long winters!

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!

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.
