Spring is possibly the best time of the year for gardeners. The sun is out and there are so many bright and vibrant flowers ready to bloom in your garden. If you’re still planning for your spring garden, then this article has some ideas to inspire you about which plants to buy and grow.

Pansy

If you’re looking to add color to your garden early on in the spring season, then pansies are a great option. They come in a wide range of colors and patterns to suit your garden. They’re versatile, too, perfect for placing in containers, window boxes, and as border plants. You’ll benefit from their blooms in the fall as well as spring, and even throughout summer in cooler climates.

Hellebore

Hellebores are perfect for planting in early spring because they are fairly cold hardy, so they’re likely to keep going even if the last of the frost isn’t quite over (as long as the ground isn’t still frozen and the overall temperatures aren’t too low). They add fantastic color and interesting petals to your garden.

Iris

Irises are generally later bloomers than the previous plants, but they’ll put in a great show towards the tail-end of spring. Choose from a variety of colors, most notable pinks, purples, and whites, to add some flair and brightness to your garden. The Acoma Iris is a great variation for spring planting.

Daffodil

Daffodils are probably the plant that’s most often associated with Easter and the springtime. They add wonderfully bright yellows and oranges to the garden. They are not best suited to hot climates, which makes spring the perfect time for them across most of the US. These plants are ideal for borders or for planting in between shrubs.

Lilac

Lilacs display nice colors as well as producing a lovely scent that you can enjoy in your garden. You can plant small shrubs or larger trees of lilac, depending on the space you have available and how prominent you want your lilacs to be. These tend to bloom later in spring, although certain variations may bloom earlier.

If you want to add any of these plants to your spring garden, then you can buy them online with Lots of Plants and have them delivered to your home, nationwide. Get in touch if you have any questions about our flowers for sale and ordering flowers online from us.

March is an exciting time in the garden. The sun is starting to come out and spring is around the corner, and there are lots of preparations you can start now. More sunlight hours also give you more time to work in the garden. Here are a few tasks you can focus on in your garden in March.

Prepare your soil

Now that the frosts have passed, it’s the perfect time to get your soil ready for all the spring planting. Remove all the weeds from your soil and then turn it to improve its condition and give it a uniform surface. Fertilizing your soil at this point will also help to produce the perfect conditions for the upcoming growing seasons

Pruning trees and shrubs

Pruning isn’t just done to keep your yard looking tidy. It is an important task for the health of your plants, shrubs, and trees, especially when pruning diseased branches. Pruning dead branches and flowers also allows room for more growth. Pruning in March is easier because the flowers have not yet started blooming, making it easy to see what you’re doing and where to make cuts. You can prune all of your trees and shrubs in March, except for pines.

Get rid of pests

Give yourself the advantage this growing season by eliminating garden pests early. Most pests will have hibernated throughout winter, so it should be easy to get rid of them at this point as they may still be dormant. Scout your garden for pests and eliminate as many as possible. With snails, you should just be able to remove them manually, tossing them out of your garden. Otherwise, you can use pesticides or insecticides to kill them chemically. Natural methods like using hot water or salt will also work on some pests.

Start planting

Now you can really get the spring planting started. It’s the perfect time to plant shrubs and fruit trees. If you have any bulbs in storage, then you can take these out and plant them, too. It’s also a good time to sow the seeds for summer vegetables. The early spring sun and the April showers to come provide the perfect conditions to get everything off to a good start.

If you need to buy plants for your spring and summer garden, we have lots of shrubs, trees, and flowers for sale, shipped nationwide from Winston Salem, NC. You can browse our latest products online.

We’re getting excited for the start of spring and all the blooming plants it brings with it. But are you prepared for the month and the season ahead? You can buy all the plants and trees you need from us without even leaving the house, but do you know what you should be buying and planting in March?

You can fill your garden with lots of colorful and nicely scented plants at this time of year. Here are our top 7 picks for March plants:

Daffodils

If you didn’t plant daffodil bulbs in the autumn, then March is a great time to buy these colorful plants. They bloom well throughout spring and can add lots of bright yellow tones to your garden.

Dahlias

Dahlias are wonderful spring flowers, so now is a great time to get them started. They are quite delicate when it comes to frost, however, so in case we haven’t seen the last of it, it’s best to start these off in pots indoors until the weather warms up.

Daphne

This range of plants gives off incredible scents that will fill your garden throughout spring. There are lots of variants that flower in different colors, so you can choose the ones you like best. Daphne mezereum, for example, shows off nice pink and white flowers.

Golden currant

This shrub will look great within your daffodils and other spring-blooming bulbs. It displays small, golden flowers in warmer months, changing to deeper red and purple hues in cooler weather. It’s a great hardy shrub for you to choose.

Camellia

Camellias are a wonderfully varied plant with more than 3,000 species to choose from. This means lots of different colors and styles available to add to your garden. Lots of variants of camellias bloom well during March and April before becoming more dormant until later in the year.

Chaenomeles

If you’re looking for elegant and vibrant flowers for your garden, the chaenomeles are the perfect choice. This shrub blooms throughout March, April, and May, so you’ll have plenty of flowering time if you buy them this March in time for spring.

Lavender

Lavender is a great choice for planting as the soil starts to warm up. You can plant it in large amounts to provide a great coverage with that well-known purple tint, just make sure to plant them two or three feet apart from each other.

Hopefully, this has inspired your planting as we reach the early days of spring. We can help turn your spring garden into a wonderland with our plants for sale online. Make sure to follow these tips when you buy trees online or any of our other products.

Sure, the garden center can be a great place, but when it’s late at night, or it’s raining outside, or you’re just really tired from a busy week, you might not want to drag yourself out of the house. The good news is you don’t have to. With Lots of Plants, you can buy plants, shrubs, and trees online and have them delivered straight to your door. What’s more, we even offer free shipping on all our plants for sale online.

Still not convinced of the benefits? Then read on…

Convenience without paying more

Of course, ordering plants online and having them delivered to your home is more convenient, but it often comes with greater expense since you have to pay for shipping. But we offer free shipping on all orders, so you don’t even have to justify the extra expense to yourself when you don’t want to go out and buy new plants or trees. You might even get better prices online because you can compare different providers rather than just accepting the price you see in-store.

Do all your research in one place

You like to be fully informed before making a purchase, we get it. When you buy trees and plants online, you’ve got the internet at your fingertips already. You don’t have to ask an in-store clerk for their advice, which might not always be impartial, and you don’t have to put up with the slow connection by searching on your phone.

You can look up each plant you’re considering buying to see how it’ll look in full bloom, as well as reading tips about what conditions it grows best in and how you should care for it. You can even go out into your yard to scout out the spot you’ll plant it in. This means you can make sure there’s space for it and that it will fit well with its surroundings.

So much choice

Speaking of having the internet at your fingertips, ordering plants online also gives you a much greater choice compared to your local garden center. You can choose from a range of plants, trees, and shrubs whatever the season. You don’t have to rely on the stock count of a single garden center.

Check out Lots of Plants to browse through our range of plants or buy trees online. We even have indoor plants for sale, so take a look today.

The US is divided into 13 different hardiness zones, representing the lowest average temperature of that region, although most fall into the first 11 zones. This helps gardeners and homeowners determine what they can grow in their yard. This can help you a great deal with planning what to plant and what not to.

If you’re not sure what your hardiness zone is, then you can check it by entering your ZIP code on the USDA site. Then, read on to find out which plants are the best for your hardiness zone.

Zones 1-2

Zones 1 and 2 experience very low temperatures, so you should look for cold hardy plants when planning what to grow. Lots of vegetables are suitable for growing in these zones, such as broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, kale, and asparagus. If you also want to plant perennials, then you can look to native plants, as these are equipped to grow in that climate. Perennials like Yarrow, Columbine, and Delphinium are also good for zone 1.

Zones 3-4

Many of the zone 1 and 2 vegetables are ideal for zones 3 and 4, as well. You can add others like potatoes, winter squash, and sweet peas. Add some color to your garden, too, with plants like Bergenia, Hosta, and Siberian Bugloss that grow especially well in zone 3.

Zones 5-6

Zones 5-6 represent more medium temperatures, so plants suited to these zones don’t do well in weather that’s too hot or too cold. You’ve got a much greater range of perennials to grow in these zones thanks to the warmer temperatures. Lilies, Lavender, Poppies, and Peonies all do well in these zones. You can also plant trees like Douglas Firs, Yews, Pin Oaks, and Forsythias.

Zones 7-8

North Carolina generally falls into these hardiness zones. You’ll have a longer growing season compared to the cooler zones and fewer restrictions on what to grow. Things like artichoke, rhubarb, and strawberries are ideal. Fruit trees like apples, pears, and cherries are also suited here, as are a lot of popular herbs. You’ll also have long lists of perennials to choose from, including Hibiscus, Butterfly bush, and Lantana.

Zones 9-10

With warmer climates, some plants and vegetables aren’t suited to these zones due to the heat. Things like melons, tomatoes, peppers, and sweet peas are good for growing in the cooler months. You can add a lot of color to your yard with flowers in these zones. Try out coneflowers, dahlias, daffodils, and hydrangeas.

Zones 11-13

Not many areas of the US fall into these zones, but for those that do, the things you plant need to be able to thrive in warmer temperatures. Edible plants you can grow in this heat are quite varied, including bananas, citrus fruits, sweet potato, mangoes, and pineapple. The Old Farmer’s Almanac also lists plants such as Geraniums and Marigolds for these regions.

Informed by your hardiness zone, you can plan the perfect garden that will respond well to the temperatures of your region.

Joseph here, owner of lotsofplants.com. I would like to introduce myself, let you know a little about my background and what led me to creating lotsofplants.com. In 2004, I started a small landscape company here in Winston Salem, NC. I taught myself how to install shrubs and trees- sun or shade- evergreen or deciduous- fast growing or dwarf. Does my client have a neighbor to gain privacy from? Does my client have young children- no spiky plants. Does my client want spiky plants to protect their property from trespassers? Do they love flowers? Do they dislike bees? Really there was so much to learn, everyone has their particular preferences and needs. It has always been my job to figure out what those were and provide them with solutions.

Over time, I became quite good at it for one main reason. I planted shrubs and trees that fit their needs and grew into what they expected and didn’t die. That’s the most important part, my plantings generally do not die. Why do my plantings not die? I’m not watering them, I’m not even checking on them. The reason is, I choose plants that are tough enough for the environmental conditions they are in and I plant no smaller than 3-gallon plants.

When installing plantings in the landscape I must choose plants that are at least 3-gallons in size. Many online retailers sell very small what we in the shrub industry call “plugs”. I also buy many many plugs every year for lotsofplants.com. My plugs are repotted into larger pots, then I grow them for one or two years depending on the variety. When I say grow, I use cold frame greenhouses, timed irrigation, specialty fertilizers, and much care to get them to a sufficient size to plant out in the yard. Basically, “plugs” are something that growers use to create products for the homeowner. Homeowners should never buy plugs online or anywhere else expecting that that plant will eventually grow up and become what they imagined when looking at the beautiful photos online. Some might survive if you’re lucky, most probably won’t.

At lotsofplants.com I created a company that provides homeowners with plantings that are ready to plant straight out in the yard. As long as your choosing the right plant for the right location, your plant should grow to its stated potential. As a landscaper and experienced grower of shrubs and trees, I want to provide plant lovers with shrubs that might not be available your town that can survive for the long term and meet the needs of your preferred landscape. If you have questions about our plants or wonder if we have plants that are not listed, or if you need help deciding what to plant, shoot us an email, we will be glad to help in any way we can.

Thanks and happy planting!  Joseph at lotsofplants.com

It may be cold outside, but spring is on the horizon. Winter is the best time to start preparing your garden and planning for spring. Plus, there are plenty of winter-blooming plants that you can focus on right now to add some life to your yard. If you’re looking for some inspiration in the dead of winter, here are some of the best plants for sale online that you could order right now.

Camellia

This shrub flowers through winter and spring, adding splashes of pink to your garden. Since it’s an evergreen shrub, it’ll provide some nice greenery throughout the year, too. They do well out of direct sunlight, which is one of the reasons they’re suited to winter. They also grow best on rainwater, which is often in abundance during these months. Camellias require acidic soil, so they may need to be grown in pots if your soil is more alkaline.

Firethorn

Firethorn, or Pyracantha, is another evergreen plant that does well in the winter. It flowers in the summer but also grows bright berries that can survive the winter. If you mulch around its base, then Firethorn plants stand up well even in freezing conditions. It is generally a low-maintenance plant, making it ideal for those winter months where you’d rather stay inside.

Heather

Heathers are a diverse category of evergreen plants that produce a variety of colors and grow in slightly different conditions. Winter-flowering heathers include Erica carnea and E. × darleyensis, which have many of their own varieties. Heather primarily blooms with pinks, purples, and white, providing a nice colored landscape for your garden. When growing heather through winter, just make sure there is plenty of mulch or compost for it to feed on.

Hellebore

Often referred to as the Christmas rose, Hellebore is an ideal plant for the winter. They tend to flower from late in the winter and into spring, so now is a great time to plant them. To improve their appearance and to make them stand out, you may need to trim back the plants’ leaves to reveal the flowers. This will also improve the health of the plant.

Holly

That timeless Christmassy plant, holly can brighten up the garden with its rich greens and reds throughout winter. There are a variety of types of holly, both trees and shrubs. In order to produce their berries, you will need both a male and female holly plant to ensure that the female plant can sprout its berries. Male plants cannot grow the berries themselves.

Winter is one of the best times to order plants online. You can get the plants you want without having to leave the warmth and comfort of your home. Check out Lots of Plants to see what outdoor and indoor plants for sale we have available.

Hydrangeas fill the garden with color each summer, with a spectrum of colors. As the season progresses, the blossoms turn shades of cream, pale green, red brown and copper.
Dried arrangements in your home can continue the show, simply by following these simple steps to dry your hydrangea blooms.

When to Cut

Let the flowers dry naturally on the plants. This usually happens from August through October. They will ready when the petals take on a kind of vintage look, or when they mature to the color of parchment paper, often with tints of pink or green. The flowers may also feel papery. Don’t cut hydrangeas when the blooms are at their peak, or during a rainy spell. The stems and leaves will hold too much water, and the flowers won’t dry fast enough to stay pretty. Don’t wait too long either, when flowers are completely brown. Snip the flowers on a cool morning and cut the stems at an angle, ranging from 12 to 18 inches. Strip off the leaves, and put the stems in a jar of water that covers the stems about halfway.

Drying

The different lengths of stems will help keep them at different heights, so they get good air circulation. Put the jar in a cool spot out of direct or bright light, and check periodically. The blooms should be ready in about two weeks, but if they’re not, add a little more water and give them more time. You can display them while you’re doing this.

If you’d rather, hang the stems upside down to dry, individually or in small bunches. Keep them in a cool, dry spot out of direct sun. Check them periodically for dryness.

Another way to dry the blooms is with glycerin, which you can purchase from most drugstores. Again, cut the stems at an angle and strip off the leaves. Then crush the ends of the stems with a hammer. Mix two parts water to one part glycerin in a jar and add the flowers. As the stems take up the mixture, the glycerin turns the petals golden brown. They’re ready when the water evaporates. If you like, you can add a drop of dye to the jar for a hint of color.

Finally, you can dry hydrangeas in silica or white sand. Simply put the flowers in a plastic container and completely cover them with the silica or sand. Remove them after two to four days and gently shake them clean. Use your dried hydrangea flowers in vases, wreaths, bouquets and craft projects. As long as they’re kept out of direct light and humidity, they should last indefinitely.

When it comes to growing and maintaining a healthy garden, soil tests are often overlooked. These tests measure soil health and fertility, are generally inexpensive, and well worth the effort when it comes to creating a productive garden space. What does a soil test show? How often should you do it?

What Does Testing Soil Show?

A soil test can determine the health of your soil. By measuring both the pH level and nutrient deficiencies, a soil test can provide the information necessary for keeping the most optimal fertility each year. Most plants, including grasses, flowers, and vegetables, grow well in slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.5. Azaleas, gardenias and blueberries prefer a bit higher acidity in order to reach their growth potential. Having a soil test can make it easier to determine the current acidity, allowing you to pinpoint the deficiencies and correct them.

How Often Should I Test?

Soil samples can be done any time of the year, fall being preferable. They are normally taken each year or simply as needed. While many companies or gardening centers offer soil testing kits, you can usually obtain a soil test for free or low cost through your local county extension office. Try not to have the soil tested whenever the soil is wet or when it’s been recently fertilized.

What Do I Need for the Sample?

To take a sample for testing garden soil, use a trowel to take small slices of soil from various areas of the garden. Allow it to air dry at room temperature and then place it into a clean plastic container or seal-able plastic baggie. Label the soil area and date for testing. Now that you know the importance of getting a soil test, you can better manage your garden plants by making the appropriate adjustments from your soil test results.

Plants for the Garden

Now that your soil is tested, its time to look for new additions for your garden. Browse our hydrangeas, which has blooms that can change colors depending on your soil pH level. Or check out our more tolerant butterfly bushes to add winged friends to your garden. Azaleas are another shrub for acidic soil levels. Or our camellias for lovely late fall and winter blooms.
