A beautiful, tropical plant that makes a huge impact, Brugmansia originated in the Andes Mountains of South America. Find out how its gorgeous, dangling “Angel’s Trumpet” flowers can be the center of attention and “wow” visitors in your garden!
The long, humid days of August are the epitome of summer. Get outside in the cooler evenings and mornings for some necessary, late-summer upkeep to your garden plants—and begin to think about some preparation for fall!
The hazy, lazy days of summer have arrived—the sun is high, and the heat and humidity have returned. Wear a big hat, apply sunscreen, and drink plenty of water while you tend to these gardening duties for July!
Some plants are a mere “flash in the pan,” appearing at nurseries for a season only to vanish from shelfs and catalogues, never to be seen again. Other plants are perennial favorites, relished not only by us and our parents, but also by our grandparents and their parents before them!
Summer has arrived, and temperatures are on the rise! Enjoy the coolness of the early mornings and evenings, as June is filled with chores that linger from spring, as well as preparations necessary for the garden to thrive well into fall.
