One of the perks of being the editor of a landscaping magazine (and there are a few) are the annual shipments of flowers that show up at our offices every spring. They come from all over the country, from all sorts of companies, and are a sure sign that we’ve officially put winter behind us.
My colleagues at Greenhouse Management and Garden Center tend to get even more material in the mail, and they’ve taken to sprucing up our offices with the fledgling plants – and they’re even building a vertical vegetable garden out on the balcony.
Today’s batch came from our friends at Proven Winners partner EuroAmerican Propagators. They’re based in Bonsall, Calif., and I interviewed their CEO and founder last year on the beach in San Diego. (Told you there were a few perks.)
Stay tuned through the summer and fall for updates on how these annuals and perennials stand up to the heat and the dozens of deer that live in my back woods. You can’t see them in this photo, but they’re just out of frame, licking their lips.
