How to enjoy the best possible garden now

August 04, 2011

August is the grand finale of garden season, and gardeners can expect their beds to put on a stunning farewell show. According to the British Flowers & Plants Association, some of the most notable blooms that are in season now include sunflowers, lilies, poppies and roses. In addition, snapdragons, amaranthus, and chrysanthemums will start to bloom during this time.

Many of these plants can be bought at the store and planted now, in case gardeners forgot while planning their landscapes last year. However, flower enthusiasts may be pleasantly surprised this month by bulbs that they did not overlook while planting last fall, according to The Star Press.

The nodding onion, Allium cernuun, is one bulb that is blooming now. While edible, many gardeners may prefer to enjoy its dainty light pink flowers and blue-green colored leaves in the garden instead of on a plate. The surprise lily, or "nekkid ladies," also known as Lycoris squamigera, bloom in August, the news source reports. These perennials are covered with a cluster of bright pink trumpet-shaped blossoms on two-inch stalks.

If considering a gift during this time of year, individuals may want to let their gardens inspire them. Get flowers delivered that mimic the bold yellows, golds, pinks and reds in nature this time of year.
