Spring Is Coming To Dallas!

If you’ve never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.  — Terri Guillemets

Please don’t take this quote harshly, enjoy these pictures of spring blooms from our garden.  If you have never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by spring blooms, maybe today is the day!

  Narcissus Grand Primo faithfully blooms every year and muliplies into larger and larger clumps to enjoy.  Our bulbs are from The Southern Bulb Company in Golden, Texas.  These Heirloom bulbs are the equivalent of a  ‘slam dunk’ for gardeners. Plant them in the fall.  They will make points for you each spring.Grand Primo Narcissus

Poppy And Larkspur Seed Planting For Dallas Gardens

Before the seed there comes the thought of bloom. –E. B. White

Plant Poppies and larkspur seed now for early spring blooms!

They require cool weather to germinate.  If you want gorgeous color for a low price, take this simple step and throw down these seeds in your garden right away.

Sow poppy and larkspur seeds on top of a well-prepared bed but do not cover with dirt. Tamp down the soil with the back of a hoe or pat down with your hands. Do not mulch.  

With a little rain, they will begin to germinate and next spring you will be well on your way to an heirloom, cottage garden look. Time is of the essence.  Do it now, you will be thanking us next spring!
