Week 5: The Cool-Season Flower Chronicles Wrap Up

Cool-season hardy annuals are such a gardening and farming game changers. If you live where summers are long and hot, like me, you may have never grown this group of cool-season plants–my book Cool Flowers will change that for you. These flowers contributions as field grown cash crops and to the home garden is amazing. You can provide for pollinators and beneficial insects by rolling out the red carpet with spring blooming hardy annual flowers. Nature’s natural workers will flock to the garden during their most vulnerable time when little else is available for them. Providing food sources and habitat invites these guys to setup housekeeping and get started working earlier than ever before! We can all plant Cool Flowers, it’s just that we may all do it on different timing. The only true fail with Cool Flowers, is not planting them at all.
