American Meadows $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway
Just when we got a winner to my last $50 gift certificate giveaway, here's another! This time it's to American Meadows, a company I've done business with in the past, and I just placed another order with them. They're located in Vermont and they've been around since 1981.

Here's what I ordered:

Red Spider Lily (Lycoris radiata) - 5 bulbs

I've always loved these but never thought we could grow them up north here in Ohio. Not so, I recently found out! So when I saw that American Meadows had them, I decided to give them a try this fall. They're a late summer bloomer and they're RED! You know how I love red...

Amaryllis 'Lagoon' (Hippeastrum) - 1 bulb

I didn't need another amaryllis bulb - I've got a couple dozen different ones already. They're growing outside at the moment, but I need to dig them up, cut the foliage, and store them in my cool basement for about six weeks and then I'll pot them up again so I'll have some blooms this winter. Several of them bloomed outside this summer, which isn't common here in the north, but it happens now and then.

I ordered this one because I love its unique strawberry color. (Like I need an excuse???)

What a great gift! We gardeners are always wanting more flowers. :) I have ordered from them too and I am a Lily fan but with a gift certificate amaryllis would be nice for the winter to perk ones spirits.

Wonderful giveaway. I usually order amaryllis bulbs from American Meadows soon so that is what I would order now. I haven't decided on which one I want yet so I would love to win one.

And I love their woodland wildflowers. In the past I have bought meadow seed, perennials, ferns, shrubs, vines from this company and love them all.

I love the amaryllis. I had one but it died. Do you have any hints on keeping the for the next year?

My mom loved tulips ! My son lives in an older home that has been sectioned off into apartments and his landlord lets him plant along side the house and in the front. This year he rescued several hostas and yuccas and replanted them in the flower beds. I'd love to get the Wildflower Tulip Bulb Mix for him to add color in the spring : D Great Giveaway - Thank you !

ONE thing, Kylee?! You know I'm bulb obsessed! I think I'd need some asiatic lilies, because you've always said they do well for you in shade. (I've got to order my bulbs. I'm behind!) Happy planting! :-)
