The Horticulture Swirl
Once September rolls around, many think the garden days are coming to an end. One way to keep horticulture swirling in your world is to find bright, bold and easy to grow flora. One of our favorite ways to keep color and greenery in the foreground is stocking up on Amaryllis bulbs. Great for gifts, these bulbs are simple enough for even the novice gardener to put in a pot and see results. You might think the price is a tad steep but this is a longevity plant. You can have the same bulb blooming for years with proper care.
White Flower Farms in Litchfield, Ct are selling three new South African varieties that might just turn your head. http://www.whiteflowerfarm.com/amaryllis-south-african.html?utm_source=12MB+Active&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2010+09+01 They start shipping in late September so don’t miss out.
This is bulb season. So get the catalogues and find your favorites. Your local nurseries may even carry the more popular mainstream varieties. All of them are stunning. Enjoy the first day of September.
The inspirational quote for today is by George Washington Cable. “For summer there, bear in mind, is a loitering gossip, that only begins to talk of leaving when September rises to go.” Make good use of the next 30 days. Annie
