Early Blooming Plants portal
The following article is a series of pictures of early blooming plants in New England area. I do not know the names of plants in the pictures. If you do, please let me know.
Planting these plants in your own garden will result in a garden that will bloom from the earliest of spring all the way to early summer.
Note: Rose bushes and plants flower from spring till fall. They are one of the best flowers if they are given a little care and attention.
I am not an "annual" plant kind of guy. I like perennials and fruit trees and bushes. Flowers are nice, but plant fruit trees and bushes to get a value from your garden. And don't go crazy with annuals -- stores like to sell them because it is a guaranteed yearly income. For you, it is a waste of money and hard labor every year. Don't complain to me -- I don't plant annuals.
