If you are planning a Valentine's Day party, either for a crowd or for one special person, I have an idea for a floral centerpiece that is easy yet charming.
Even if you have just a small garden made up primarily of annuals, you can still make wonderful floral centerpieces for your dinner table.
While flower arrangements are ephemeral, creating and viewing them can brighten a winter's day.
As we think about flower decorations for the holidays, it is interesting to think about the lavish scale of floral art in English Victorian homes.
If you yearn for a carpet of color on a bank or sloping area of your garden, plant some phlox subulate.
