As weâ€™re now in the middle of July, itâ€™s extremely important to get out in the garden and perform several simple tasks that will promote better growth, blooms and encourage your plants to come back even stronger next season.
Shrubs are an amazingly-simple way to add big, bold statements in the garden with little work. They are large in size, many provide year-long interest in the garden and delight with stunning blooms. Whether you have sun, shade, dry soil or not â€“ There is certainly a place in your garden for a shrub!

Birds are one of the most fascinating creatures to watch and their chirps are often the first sign that spring has arrived. As a gardener, there are several ways to create an environment that will both attract and help our winged friends. By planting a garden that provides food and shelter for birds, you will create a beneficial, lively habitat in your own outdoor space.

Butterfly Bushes emit a sweet fragrance that isnâ€™t just heavenly for our noses, but attracts beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. We planted one right outside our window at American Meadows and were amazed at the multitude of wildlife that it brought for us to enjoy.
