With the temperatures starting to cool down, it’s a great time to think about doing some growing indoors and start thinking about your 2022 garden. This week you’ll find helpful information on a vibrant flowering bulb, tips on laying the foundation for a successful spring, how to protect potted perennials, and more. Plus, don’t miss out on our next webinar!
Brighten your day with a vibrant amaryllis. Don’t know how to grow one or where to get them? That’s what we’re here for. Check out our Guide to Growing Beautiful Amaryllis for all the info you’ll need—whether you’re growing them indoors for some winter cheer, or planting them in the garden for spring blooms. (They also make great holiday gifts!)
*When started indoors, amaryllis usually take six to eight weeks to bloom. Get yours started now for beautiful holiday flowers!
If you’re thinking of making some changes to your garden for next year, how about designing an area to enjoy at night? White flowers and silver or variegated foliage reflect the moonlight, and night-blooming fragrant flowers create a multi-sensory experience. Discover more design tips and plant suggestions to help you design your own magical moon garden. Pictured: The White Garden at Sissinghurst Castle.
