Proven Winners - Great On Line Planting Idea Books 2013

Here in the Northeast it is time to peruse (and buy from) the gardening catalogs...

Besides simple catalogs showing photos of all sorts of plants plants (must plant Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce early this year), I love the garden design booklets that are available.
Proven Winners, one of the leading brands of quality flowering plants in the U.S., is helping spread the concept of 'gardening as a lifestyle' by sharing ideas on how to create outdoor spaces that are relaxing, easy-to-maintain and exceptionally beautiful.  This is the impetus behind their wonderful  Gardener's Idea Book .

The 2013 Gardener's Idea Book (click for link) is a must for people who love creating beautiful containers - perfect for urban dwellers with small balconies, raised bed gardeners ( think therapuetic and assisted living centers) and children's gardens where a punch of 'easy to grow' color will excite young, budding horticulturists.

The ideas and plant combinations they offer are simply fantastic.

And Proven Winners also publishes an online guide called, '2013 Gardening Simplified - Flowering Shrubs'. Another fabulous compensium of photos, info and inspiration.

Good job, PW!

So in the spirit of 'dream time', take a look and list the flowering plants to buy all helps Proven Winners fulfill their mission of making  "the world a greener place - one garden at a time!


  1. I have always loved poring over plant catalogs and visualizing the plants in my garden.
    Thanks for telling us about the Gardener's Idea Book. I have added it to my favorites!

  2. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
