I am impressed. These plants arrived so quickly and are just beautiful.
It's quite a treat to receive 32 plants for that price ...I was expecting
something much smaller"
Evolution of a Garden
I planted this garden for my friend
Jackie in late June in what was truly the worse soil I've ever worked
in. It was hard as rock with no organic matter. I wondered what
I got myself into but planted anyway and told her to keep on watering
A few weeks later, the plants filled
out and blooms appeared. By early August, Jackie's cottage garden
was alive with color! (See right)
truly believe that flower beds should cater to the whim of the gardener.
You should plant what you like, the colors you
want and shapes that please you. The bottom line is you have to have
plants and lots of them. I remember when I first started gardening.
I drove to the garden center and found plenty of gorgeous plants. But
it didn't do me much good as I could only afford two plants and two
plants do not make a garden! You need visual impact by planting flowers
en mass. At Graceful Gardens, we sell plants at wholesale prices for
the home gardener. We help you fill your garden with blooms by offering

creating your garden! We want you to know that we offer plants that
we've tested in our gardens and are easy to grow. Our all time favorites
are the Delphiniums. Having learned everything
we can about them we've come to find them quite reliable. When we
create a garden we always choose some delphiniums. You can learn
more about growing delphiniums here.
perennials: There are lots of reasons to choose perennials for your
garden. They are hardy, adaptable and come back year after year.
When you go to our perennials page, you'll
find an overwhelming amount of choices. Pick what suits your fancy.
perennials tend to have specific bloom times, we like to include
annuals as well into the garden. They help fill in the gaps, particularly
if you are new to perennial gardening. I like to have strong blooms
all season long and annuals are the best way to have constant color.
So look through the annuals selection
and pick plants for vibrant and persistent color.
a garden means being imaginative. Be brave! As Miss Lippincotts
garden catalog said in 1896, "Let us have all the flowers we
can possibly afford; they are the veritable smiles of nature."
Graceful Gardens will let you do
just that. ~Amanda Shenstone
