African Daisies pack a punch of flower power!

These daisy-like flowers produce bright symmetrical petals that are available in a range of colours. Plant them outside in mid to late spring in an area that receives full sun to light shade and soil with good drainage. Peak bloom time is from late spring to early summer and again from late summer into fall. African daisies work equally well planted in the ground or in containers. Their hardy stems really hold the blooms upright for a stunning flower presence.

Grow your own fresh fruit, start your Strawberries for Summer!

If you enjoy the taste of fresh Strawberries in the summer now is the time to plant them. Strawberries are very easy to grow. Strawberries can grow and produce for many years in your garden. They multiply themselves so you can continue to expand your strawberry patch every year. The hardest part about growing them is right after you plant them, you have to force yourself to remove their blooms so that the plant can become established before growing fruit.

The Magnolias are Bursting into Bloom!

There is nothing quite like the blooms of Magnolia trees and shrubs. The blooms emerge before they produce leaves allowing us to see all of the beautiful blooms that can cover the entire tree. Flowering can begin in late March and bloom through April. The latest blooming varieties are the Grandiflora or Evergreen Magnolia. These varieties bloom in May and June with large white fragrant flowers.

One of the most popular varieties is the Magnolia Stellata or Star Magnolia. These small trees (or large shrubs) make an excellent focal point in a garden bed. In the spring they are covered with large white flowers that look like a star exploding in the sky.

When the Forsythia are in Bloom it is Time to Prune!

One of the first spring flowering shrubs to delight us with its blooms every spring are the Forsythia. These beautiful shrubs are filled with bright yellow flowers for about a month every spring. They are also an excellent reminder that it is time to prune your tree and shrubs. Roses, Fruit Trees, Small Fruits (Blueberries and Raspberries), and summer flowering shrubs.

One of the best new varieties of Forsythia to be introduced in the past few years has been the Proven Winners variety called ‘Show Off’. This great dwarf variety grows only 4 to 5 feet high and wide and is covered every spring in beautiful golden yellow flowers. ‘Show Off’ is hardy to zone 4 (-34C or -25 F).

Camelia ‘Chansonette’

Camellias are bursting into Bloom!

Camellias are one of the most beautiful spring flowering shrubs. The flowers come in a range of colours from reds, pinks, white, and some are even yellow. The flowers can be single, semi-double, or double. The double flowers resemble roses when in full bloom. They are evergreen shrubs which make an excellent backdrop to your flower garden. Varieties can range in height from 6 to 8 feet high or as tall as 10 to 12 feet. They are hardy to zone 6 (-20 C or -5 F).

Camelia sasanqua ‘Winter’s Snowman’

 

If you are choosing a place for a Camellia in your garden they like to be in a location that gets partial sunshine. When Camellias are young they appreciate being protected from cold winter winds so plant them against a wall or fence. If you plant one close to a house and it is under the eaves of your house do not forget to water it during the winters. If they go dry they are more likely to attract pests and diseases.
