BloomIQ Makes Shopping for Plants a Snap

I don't know about y'all, but when I go into a garden center without a plan, I get what I call "plant freeze"! With so many plant choices, picking the perfect plants that will thrive in my "new" garden is still overwhelming.

Rather than randomly buying plants that look good on the shelf and hoping they'll live onceI get them home, I've found a smarter way to shop.

This spring, I'm going to put a new garden website to work for me so I can shop with more confidence - and not be intimidated by a sea of flowers and plants, leaving me clueless as to where to start. has garden design suggestions and planting combinations that match color preferences, personal style and growing conditions.

With just a click of the mouse, I can browse beautiful images, plant descriptions and info to help me make the best selections for my yard.

The best part is I can create and print a shopping list of the plants I want so I can go to the store armed with knowledge.

I can't wait to start digging in and making our new garden the one of our dreams.
