Throughout the month of April, we celebrate two national observances. National Garden Month began in 2015 when USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack proclaimed that the country would celebrate National Garden Month every April. National Lawn and Garden Month, on the other hand, is an unofficial national month of observance. The purpose of both of these month-long events was and is to encourage homeowners to beautify their front and back yards.
For lucky Baton Rouge homeowners, our temperate climate allows us to enjoy our outdoor living, entertaining and garden spaces all year. Our fellow countrymen and women who live north of us don’t get to enjoy the consistently warm weather – until April, if then. Southern homeowners take great pride in maintaining their yards and gardens and making sure that their porches are welcoming enough to entice us to relax with some sweet tea..
The first flowers that come to mind when we’re thinking about spring blooms are tulips. If flowers could scream, our Fresh Cut Tulips With Accent Flowers would welcome spring from every rooftop. We arrange stems of different colored tulips that still have their leaves in a bubble bowl with complimentary wax flowers. This delightfully simple design is both elegant and sophisticated.
Let our “Thanks a Million” Bouquet turn any ordinary room into a sophisticated entertaining space. The combination of pink Alstroemeria, roses, carnations and snapdragons and giant white hydrangeas captures the beauty you’d expect to find in some of Louisiana’s most famous formal flower gardens.
We also have a large variety of outdoor blooming plants to spruce up any patio or garden. We have 6″ annuals along with large patio pots with an assortment of mixed annuals. If you are looking for something to hang up, we have hanging bougainvilleas, fern baskets, and assorted annuals/perennials. Another great idea to spruce up that backyard is to grow Mandevillas on a trellis!
