Pollinator Week–Butterflies, Hummingbirds and Bee Pollinators!

Posted by on June 12th 2016 in blog

We have always enjoyed planting flowers that attract beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds, and now with the concern turned toward our treasured pollinators, the bees, we are planting things that bees really enjoy too. Many of the perennial flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds are also great pollinators for bees. These garden friends that we are creating an environment for need both pollen and nectar. Nectar is the sweet fluid produced by flowers.…

Square Foot Gardening=Maximum Yield

Posted by on May 16th 2016 in blog

Nothing brings me as much joy as the process of growing food in my own yard. For the last handful of years, I have been using the square foot gardening method to organize and grow my garden. I am amazed by the yield and I love the aesthetics—half archeological dig and half patchwork quilt tidiness. I have an old, sun-faded copy of Mel Bartholomew’s book, Square Foot Gardening, which I…

Itoh Peony

Posted by on May 9th 2016 in News

A note from Monrovia Growers about Itoh Peonies. Named for Toichi Itoh, the first hybridizer to successfully cross a tree Peony with an herbaceous Peony in the 1940’s, these popular gems are in high demand, prized for their huge, beautiful blooms and lush green foliage. Historically, Itohs were challenging to grow and thus hard to find and rather expensive. But that’s all changed. We are proud to partner with leading…

Container Design

Posted by on May 4th 2016 in blog,
