Whether you have a green thumb or not, a trip to Bennett's will get you inspired to get out and plant flowers!
My favorite season is spring! As soon as I can smell the hint of dirt and grass, I get excited to be outside and plant flowers! The hardest part is waiting until it is a "safe" time to plant flowers so a spring freeze will not wipe out any of my plantings. My mom is the queen of flower planting and with her years of horticulture experience and my desire to learn anything new and exciting about flowers, we make one great team. Our first stop when it is time to plant is always Bennett's Greenhouse where the wide selection of flowers, shrubs, decorative pieces, and more await us.
We always start in the outdoor area of Bennett's to check out the beautiful perennials and shrubs. Over the course of 3 years, I have purchased knock out roses, weigela, day lilies, oriental lilies, hostas and so much more. After checking out the outdoor area (which truthfully, we have spent hours scouring the whole area), we then head indoors. This area has a floral shop, garden store and a greenhouse that is full of annual flowers, vegetable plants, decorative outdoor pieces, etc. My husband and I have a vegetable garden and we always get our tomato, squash and spinach plants from Bennett's. Our tomato plants last year were huge!
When my husband and I bought our house, our outdoor landscaping was a blank slate. Within 3 years, we have created a masterpiece of outdoor natural art from flowers bought at Bennett's. We also love the customer care we get at Bennett's as the workers are all very knowledgeable about the plants. Bennett's is the place to go this spring season!
