    Best New Plants 2014 . Our featured plant, above – “Plum Pudding” Poppy – This is one of the most gorgeous poppies I’ve seen.

Hardy to zone 3, highly recommended.

    Planting Crocus bulbs in lawn ~ my step-grandma did this with one in the center, with a circle of bulbs around it- she planted all white. Perhaps I'm easily impressed, but I thought it was so pretty. The lawn is ready to be cut by the time the crocus is done blooming. Clever.
