Planting Season is Just Around the Corner. Do you have a plan?
It’s time to add more gorgeous flowers to your ever-growing garden.
August is waning, and I couldn’t be happier! If you’re like me, you love the beginning of Fall — the air is crisp, leaves are changing, and your garden is begging for a new addition. Solid Fall planning and planting lead to those gorgeous Spring and Summer flourishes.
If you’re looking to add a new flower variety to your garden, here are some of our favorites:
VERONA SUNRISE FANCY TULIPS
*Plant bulbs between October and early December.
The Verona Sunrise earns its name with streaks of champagne, warm pinks, and soft yellows. A double-tulip is broad, feathery petals that look almost like a peony. Plant the bulbs in clusters to create dramatic bursts of color in your early spring garden.
*Great for hardy winter zones. Plant between October and late November.
A resilient perennial, the Muscari’s delicate bluebells in Spring might make you forget a harsh winter. A great accent to taller flowers, like Daffodils or Tulips, the Muscari variety thrives in partial shade, making them ideal for areas in your garden that require a little more coverage and color.
PEONIES (ANY VARIETY)
*Plant between October and late December.
Peonies add drama and depth to your garden. They come in various shades, from white and soft pink to vibrant corals and plums.
Peonies are “investment florals” because they usually take a few seasons to mature fully. Bushes tend to expand, so we suggest you plant annuals nearby in the first few seasons of growth. You can also plant these beauties 2.5-3’ apart in a hedge.
Like everything else at Laura Hooper Design House, my creative passions inform what we offer our customers. I’m constantly adding new floral varieties for my Foxhill Garden, and when I’m happy with the results, I offer them to you via our Foxhill Garden Shop.
