Finding a Flower Bulb CompanyWritten by Dave Lavinsky
Continued from page 1
In searching for flower bulbs, you can also look to local stores. Department stores, such as Wal-Mart, often sell flower bulbs. Home improvement stores also sell flower bulbs. Often, local nurseries and landscape supply stores are best source for flower bulbs. With these stores, unlike online distributors, you can inspect bulbs. In this way you know that you are getting healthy, firm, and blemish-free bulbs.
No matter what company you choose, there is bound to be a variety of flower bulbs to suit your taste.

Easy to grow rosesWritten by Hans Dekker

Fairy Rose is also on of these easy to grow roses.
Fairy Rose is also on of these easy to grow roses. It is what rose gardeners refer to as a dwarf rose which only grows to lengths of two to three feet. Do not let this name fool you, Fairy Rose grows closely to ground and blankets quite a bit of area. It also blooms magnificently throughout year even through harsh months of July and August. Beware of monstrous thorns on this one. This is one, and only deterrent I can think of to growing this one. The thorns make this plant a little more of a challenge to prune and care for but if you are willing to take it on, it can offer some eye-popping results during bloom. Overall, Fairy Rose still has my thumbs up because of over top bloom power that it has.
The butterfly rose is also a great pick.
Mutablis (otherwise known as butterfly rose) is my last pick of these easy to grow roses. It, like some of others, blooms constantly throughout year. The flowers change colors as they develop and this is a unique property that I have only observed in one other rose. The petals begin as a delicate yellow, turn to an orange color, then change to pink, and finally wind up a deep and vibrant red color. This rose is also resistant to disease and is definitely a very hardy grower.
These are just a few of roses that are easy to bloom and are therefore great starter roses for any rose garden. You offer yourself opportunity to become familiar with roses and general terms and aspects of rose gardening without becoming heavily involved by choosing a rose that is simple and easy to grow to begin your garden with. As your skill and understanding of roses develops, you can then move onto bigger challenges by planting some of more difficult to grow roses in your garden.
