There is no better way to cure the ‘winter blues’ than starting to plan your spring planting! 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…

Valentine’s Day Blooms

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to feature some of our most romantic plants in all shades of pink, red and white. Although not blooming on February 14th, these stunning varieties bring extended romance to your lives in the spring and summer months, both in the garden and cut for endless bouquets.

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.

Planning for Spring: Think Pink!

The color pink represents so many wonderful causes and feelings, I thought I would take the time to highlight and celebrate it as one of my favorite colors in the garden. Pink blooms, depending on the shade, can create an endless variety of statements in your garden. When the weather gets cold, I start planning ahead for spring and thought I would help you do the same with some of my favorite pink flowers.
