Can’t Wait to Grow Some New Plants from T&M!

Hey folks! Sorry it's been a while since our last update. We've been busy gearing up for our Fall catalogue release! (Speaking of our new catalog, request one HERE).

I don't know about you, but I often have trouble finding exactly what I want at my local florist. It’s nothing against their shop—it’s a great, local, family-owned establishment that’s been in town for decades. However, in order to meet my ever-growing needs (and wants) as a gardener, I am looking for a broader selection. Thankfully, Thompson & Morgan is releasing some new products this fall, and our lineup looks promising.

One plant I’ve really got my eye on is Coreopsis ‘Roulette’. I love finding new plants to try in fresh cut bouquets, and when I heard about this one I just had to put it on my list of ‘things to plant’. It’s a unique bouquet addition because it has a second row of petals on each bloom. Each time I look at one I feel as if the roulette ball just landed on my lucky number!

There are a few others I’m going to try: Sweet Pea ‘Ballerina Blue’, with its large, aromatic blooms; Petunia ‘Rose Vein Velvet’ F1 Hybrid, a perennial that flowers all summer; and Cosmos ‘Brightness Mixed’, with its bushy, free-flowering mixture of gold, lemon, orange and red.

I can’t wait till these come out! Talk about adding variety to a bouquet!
