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.

Preparing Your Garden for Winter

This fall, once you are done planting as many Tulips, Daffodils, Crocus, or perennials that will fit in your garden, it is time to prepare your garden beds for the winter months. This preparation will make it easier to work your garden in the spring and will help to protect your plants from the harsh winter weather.

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.

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!
