At Flowers by the Sea, we're always pleased when customers share photos and information about their experiences growing Salvias and companion plants. When the pictures concern plants purchased from our farm and online nursery, we can't help but feel proud.
So we decided that some of you might be glad to pass on tales, tips and terrific pictures that everyone can access.
Portraits in Gardening allows readers to peek into the lives and yards of FBTS customers who are passionate about the Salvia genus for many reasons, including the desire to grow wildlife habitat that encourages pollinators. Due to rich nectar and long bloom times, Salvias are well known for attracting butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds.
The gardeners who participate in this series graciously allow us to publish their photos as well as interviews about their gardening experiences. We see the sharing of garden stories as a celebration of a favorite activity as well as a learning tool.
When growing plants, we all learn from a combination of disappointing mistakes and thrilling successes. We gain from each other by listening as well as sharing. For more information about Portraits in Gardening, please write or call us. We look forward to seeing your pictures and hearing about your garden.
