Not all flowers are created equal. We're not just talking about size, shape and color. When it comes to flowers that will stand the test of time, there are only a few that thrive once they're cut for floral arrangements. And come Fall, the pickings are even more slim. But, we've got good news! These eight Fall flowering plants are perfect for any cut flower arrangement and we carry them all at GSCO!
There is no greater gift we can give ourselves than the flowers we pick from our gardens. And while we love to gaze at them outdoors, the dog days of summer are here and that means it's time to–snip-snip–take them indoors! Try these simple steps when cutting your fresh floral arrangement for maximum viewing pleasure!
Hello everyone! Take just one small stroll through the Garden Supply grounds and you will fully believe that spring has truly arrived. Everywhere you look you'll see flowering annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees. If it's blooming, we're sure to have it. You need to come on over and take a little peek. We will have you itching to get outside in your gardens and get dirty in no time flat! One perennial already blooming is the Lenten Rose, a mainstay of many shady gardens.
This wonderful plant bears some of the longest-lasting flowers of the year. If you already have some of these in your garden, now is the time to trim off last year's foliage that may be hiding under the new leaves that emerged this winter. Removing any leaves that look shabby will make the new foliage and blooms look even better.
Pansies, another bright favorite in the landscape, are still going strong. We just got in a new shipment this week.
If you have pansies that have overwintered with you, they would benefit from a dose of fertilizer right about now. These spring-like temperatures will encourage new growth from their winter slump. Pinching off any spent flowers will help, too. This will give your old pansies a fresh new start. They should look good until mid-May.
Look at some of our other blooming beauties.
Wouldn't this stunning Camilla be a showpiece in your home landscape? Come check out all the gorgeous varieties we have for you.
And if you're looking for a real Southern Beauty, take a gander at these amazing forsythia in bloom. I would guess these plants are at least 8 feet tall already, and bursting with bright yellow color.
Just gorgeous! But then, everything is gorgeous these days at the garden center. Hope you'll stop by and visit soon!
