I like to think of all the green in our gardens as a ‘little black dress’; it is classic and never goes out of style. You can use that black dress as a background palette, dolling it up each year with accessories featuring whatever is the hot fashion color that year.

There are so many options when it comes to hydrangeas that it can be a bit overwhelming at first. With all the different colors of flowers, styles of flowers, gorgeous bark (think winter interest) and leaf shapes, there is sure to be a hydrangea or two, or three that you must have in your garden.

For most parts of the US and Canada, your gardens are put to bed for the winter.  The ground is quite cold; in fact, too frozen to plant anything and/or it is also snow covered. You have read every garden book, magazine and started following a slew of new garden blogs. Even your garden catalogs are in order. So what do you do?  Winter Gardening of course!

"If you love it you will prune it." My garden friend’s father says this and I have to say it is pretty sound gardening advice.  Most plants, especially shrubs and woody perennials can benefit from a strong pruning.

I first fell for azaleas watching the Masters Golf Tournament every April. The landscaped areas of Augusta National in Georgia are overflowing with exquisite azaleas that pop on camera and in person. Sure, Augusta has professionals tending their azaleas but home gardeners can get the look with repeat super bloomer azalea varieties - Always Azaleas™ in Smart & Stylish Shrubs™ from the HGTV HOME Plant Collection.

With this winter’s temperatures dipping lower than in recent years throughout much of the country, some plants may have been lost while others are only damaged. Don’t be overzealous in removing them from the garden. Established woody plants with top growth killed stand a good chance of returning from their roots. It could be as late as June before you know for sure.  

Creating winter interest in the garden can be one of the most challenging tasks since purchases are made in the springtime. It takes willpower to hold back from buying what’s in bloom instead of what may be showy in the winter.

When spring rolls around, get your yard ready to be bold with these hot pinks: annuals, perennials and shrubs.

Many plants are introduced every year, but how many really make the must-have list for gardeners around the country? These varieties below are sure to make it into gardens this coming spring and will have folks on the lookout to snatch them up. Don’t miss out!
