Fall is for Wildflowers!

With warm days and cooling nights, fall presents the perfect time to plant Wildflowers.  Fall planting mimics the natural life cycle when flowers begin to fade, produce and drop seed.  Fall planting can allow for earlier blooms the following spring, which is appealing to anyone that lives in a region with short summers and long winters!

Did you Know Fall is the Perfect Time for Planting?

As the summer winds down, it’s never too early to start thinking about fall and what additions or subtractions you might want to make to your garden. More and more people are learning that fall provides a “second season” of planting and that it’s not just about maintenance and clean up in the garden!

Beautifying a City Corner

Living in a small city, I am often discouraged at the wasted green space in the medians throughout town. Having recently purchased my own home, with it came two fairly large medians. I quickly got tired of mowing, so Wildflowers were the perfect answer!

Planting a Garden with Wings

Butterflies are one of the most amazing creatures. They have four distinct life cycle stages–egg, larvae, pupae, and adult. They go from egg to caterpillar then make it to adult as a butterfly. In order to plant a successful butterfly garden, you have to plant food plants, also known as host plants, and you must plant nectar plants for the adults.

It’s Not Too Late for Wildflowers!

Can you believe the first day of summer is right around the corner? This is also the time of year when we get plenty of calls from customers wanting to know if they still have time to sow wildflowers. The simple answer is: yes! Whether you’re planning ahead with our All Perennial Mix or wanting to add some quick color with Annual Wildflowers to fill in bare spots, we can certainly help.
