Practically Indestructible Plants

Let’s face it: As much as we all try our hardest in the garden, some of us – and our growing conditions – are just not as good as others. The experts here at American Meadows wanted to come up with a comprehensive “practically indestructible” plant list for gardeners with challenging soil, water conditions, or anything else that may get in the way of growing prize-winning roses!

Update: Beautifying my Alma mater!

In July of 2012 I wrote about giving back in a little different way to the university that I proudly graduated from back in 1997. Working with Assoc. Professor of horticulture Mark Starrett, we donated hundreds of plants that his students potted and planted all over campus. Today I received some updated photos and all I can say is, “WOW!”

Knowing and Growing Peonies

If you live where Peonies grow, it’s the same every year in late spring. Certain homes have them in beds, borders, along drives – and anywhere they grow, they create probably the most beautiful clump of flowering of the whole season. Big, usually fluffy flowers in glossy green foliage.

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!

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.

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.
