The Garden Home Retreat is certainly full of the abundance of the garden; fresh fruit, tasty produce and a bounty of blooms that treat you would every turn.
When it comes to flower borders, I often take a queue from some of the English gardens I spent time in as a student; plant tall items toward the back and shorter items toward the front. Following this rule loosely led me to a Larkspur called Giant Imperial. I have been testing this for a few years and I think I have stumbled on to something that really creates a majestic presence in our spring borders. It combines so well with so many other annuals.
Now, you may think that this is odd but we actually planted this Giant Imperial Larkspur big seed back in late fall and early winter. And the result, well as you can see are these beautiful blooms in May. If you plan to try this variety of Larkspur, I suggest you follow the package directions. Just make sure you are getting the seeding times downright for your result. I have to say it is so worth it to get some of this light spring bloomers in before other annuals take off in the garden and fill it out through the summer.
