Growing Is What We Do Best!

Happy March!

From Cuttings…

Geraniums are the perfect ideal summer annual for Minnesota. This plant can handle the intense heat our summers have to offer, while still maintaining healthy green foliage and bright flowers. Our Geraniums are all grown from cuttings. Once they are stuck in our homemade soil they are misted until roots are established.

…To establishing Roots…

Once the roots are established our growers pinch and maintain a healthy crop during the next couple of months to make sure they are on track for May. Pinch back and routine dead heading can create a fuller, healthier plant. Regular pruning is crucial for new plants that need to be trained for the summer to come.

…To Mature Geraniums!

It’s important to us that we offer the healthiest and fullest product we have to offer. When selecting garden center material, we are sure to only pick the plants of highest quality, which to be honest isn’t hard when our growers make that process easy. Our team of growers put in the long days and hard work to make sure we provide a product that everyone’s mom would like to have!

The Easter Lily is the ultimate Spring plant. Every year we grow this beautiful plant as a reminder of a new year and a new start. It symbolizes the start of something new. Change can be scary, but as they look so fresh and green you can’t help but smile and feel good!

If you are familiar with this plant, we are sure you have admired their stunning, bold color. Even though there is no color yet, just you wait. Soon they will be bursting with color.

P.S. Can you smell the fresh soil??

Our Favorite Fall Annuals

By Christina Timm

I think we can all agree in wishing that fall lasted just a little bit longer than it does. Why? Because who doesn’t love pumpkins, apple cider, changing leaves, and campfires? Although autumn means the end of summer, it also means the start of something new. For some it means the start of school, for others the nearness of winter. But for us autumn means bold color, leafy texture, and creativity. At Lynde we want to make color last through the season.

Here are 5 of our Favorite Fall Annuals:

Celosia

The blooms on a Celosia have been described as soft and feathery like a paint brush. Coming in red, gold, orange, and yellow they provide bold color and are a great thriller to any combination. The blooms emerge from bright green foliage. The Celosia is a great way to add texture, height, and color all at once.

Grass

Grass can add texture and beautiful brown tones to a fall combination. This grass is further enhanced when paired with orange, gold, and burgundy flowers. Its wispy nature creates wonderful movement. The Toffee Twist Grass is a great way to add a whimsical, rich texture drawing the eye closer.

The Garden Mum

The Garden Mum is the ultimate fall choice of flowers. With their mounding nature and bold overall color, the mum is a great cool weather plant. Coming in warm colors like tangerine, gold, burgundy, and plum they make amazing fillers for a fall combination. The Garden Mum offers a fullness that other plants can’t.

Flowering Kale

Flowering Kale offers large, flowing foliage with white or purple centers. This leafy foliage provides texture and is one of the most cool weather-resistant plants for fall. Most Flowering Kale can withstand the first frost, which enhances its color. Add Flowering Kale to your next fall combination to provide filler and green foliage.

Pigeon White Flowering Kale

Ornamental Peppers

The Ornamental Pepper is a great addition to any fall combination. Different varieties come in reds and yellows, oranges and yellows, and reds and purples. They can add a little fire to a fall combination in need of a little flair of color. Peppers grow to about medium height offering a filler of crisp green foliage and shades of warm fall color.
