We are often asked at the greenhouse about the current trends in gardens: color combinations, easy-to-grow perennials that reward you year after year, and nifty projects that are functional and beautiful.
Here’s our scoop on some garden trends for 2017 based on our industry knowledge as well as what we see in and around the Saratoga Springs area. All of the photos were taken at our greenhouse in late April and represent some of the hundreds of flowers and plants we currently have in stock.
Native plants and locally sourced materials
As people become increasingly interested in their natural environment, more customers are turning to native plants: species that actually grew here originally and are adapted to thrive in this climate. Similarly, the popularity of using other natural elements (rocks, wood) from this area is also on the rise.
