some white flowers with the words, why we garden and why we love the work for gardener
Why We Garden
Gardening can be an overwhelming process. We plant seeds, we weed, we rake, we clean, yet we continue to garden year after year. For gardeners, growing is a need, a longing. We garden because we have to. We love the work because we see what will be. #emmasgardencorner #gardening #seeds #perennials #annuals
Are seeds better to plant than seedlings? Plants, Seeds, Spring, Garden, Summer Garden, Seedlings
Seeds or Seedlings?
Spring is the time to begin planting our seeds and seedlings for a colorful summer garden. Which one is better: seeds or seedlings? If you are busy, have limited time and space, and limited funds, these are all factors in your gardening decision. #emmasgardencorner #seeds #seedlings #springplantingseason

Daffodils and Hyacinths
Does anything say "spring" lovelier than daffodils and hyacinths? Hyacinths are fragrant and should be planted near the entrance of your home or building to welcome guests. An added bonus: hyacinths stave off squirrels and other rodents! #emmasgardencorner #daffodils ##hyacinthflower
Hummingbirds are a delightful treat to observe and enjoy during the spring and summer seasons. When do they arrive? And how can we feed and care for our hummingbirds?
Feeding our fascinating hummingbirds
Caring for hummingbirds benefits them and us.

Calendula for full sun
Calendulas are from the marigold or Tagetes family. I had no idea how well they spread and the variety of color I'd see from these lovelies. Easy to grow in full sun! #calendula #emmasgardencorner #tagetes

Easy-growing wildflowers
Growing wildflowers is an easy way to enjoy color and variety in your garden. It attracts pollinators such as bees and butterflies, and creates a natural design that is pleasing to your landscape. A wildflower garden is a sensible option for the busy gardener. #emmasgardencorner #wildflowers #wildflowergarden #pollinatingflowers

Container ideas
Need container ideas for shady spots? Coleus, begonias, and impatiens are shade-loving plants. In this container display I designed, I added a bit of spider plant from my houseplant to give it some pizazz. One spider hanging, green coleus, 4 impatiens and 4 begonias later, this pot is thriving in one of my shadiest of spots. #emmasgardencorner #containergardening #spiderplant #coleus #impatiens #begonias
