Presented by Ara Lynn
Ara is owner of The Amazing Flower Farm in New Ipswich, NH. For the past several years, our garden club has taken a group, as part of our “Spring Nursery Hop,” to her farm to purchase all sorts of wonderful plants for our gardens. Ara specializes in unusual annuals, perennials, and vegetables — not the typical ones you find at other garden centers.
Ara clearly has a passion for gardening and will speak to our club about exciting new annuals and their uses. Annuals reign supreme for season-long color and have an enormous variety of colors, plant habits, and other desirable attributes including serving as hummingbird and pollinator attractants.
Ara will share some of the new varieties as well as ways to use annuals beyond traditional flower beds, integrating them into perennial and vegetable gardens, where they can function as beneficial companion plants.
