Garden Design: Get this Look

One of our favorite customer photos and the winner of our 2011 Photo Contest is this gorgeous photo from Robert B, a customer gardening in Illinois. We’ve had many so customers ‘oooh and aaaah’ over this design, we thought we’d share the varieties so you could re-create the look for this season!

Maximize your Blooms this Summer with a Regional Wildflower Mix!

Did you know that our regional mixtures have about 300,000 seeds per pound?  That’s a lot of wildflowers.  In fact not only is it a nice blanket of annual color in the first growing season, it’s a long standing display of perennials for the second and successive seasons.  This is one of the many reasons why our regional mixtures are so popular.

Spring is in the Air!

I’m always excited this time of year as a few warm winter days remind me that spring is not far away! We recently participated in our local flower show which was a great success and lots of fun…

Re-Blooming Fun: New Bearded Irises

Anyone who has grown Bearded Iris can’t seem to get enough of them. Their ruffled blooms create an elegant statement in almost any garden and the re-bloomers do what every gardener dreams of – put on a show twice in one season. We all love the classic Bearded Irises that have been around for years, but it is always exciting to try a new twist on an old favorite.

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.
