Recent studies show that gardening is still the fastest-growing hobby in the US, and wildflower seed gardening is one of the fastest-growing segments of the hobby.
AmericanMeadows.com, a leading website for wildflower gardeners, has seen important growth ever since 2005 began. "Our traffic is up over 50% since the year began," says Ray Allen, who with his wife, Chy, founded AmericanMeadows over 20 years ago.
The Allens founded the Vermont Wildflower Farm back in 1981 to share their hobby of wildflowers with others. (This summer the Wildflower Farm will be featured on HGTV.) Now, after that experience, the creation a national seed catalog, and finally, creating a handsome, seed-filled website under their "national" name, AmericanMeadows.com, the couple continues to enjoy introducing more and more gardeners to the easy care world of wildflower meadow gardening.
And wildflower seeds is not all they offer now. "We added flower bulbs last fall, and now have a really unique list of summer-flowering bulbs to plant this spring," says Allen. "Of course, we have glads and dahlias, but we also have some of the hard-to-find species lilies that I think are really the world's most beautiful wildflowers," notes Allen.
Allen also points out the flood of press reports now coming in from early spring bloom in the desert Southwest. "Even Death Valley is in bloom this spring, thanks to all the rain out there. This is going to be a very good year."

American Meadows also sells what they call "Favorite Flower Packets" of wildflower seeds for .50 each, and less with quantity. Their forget-me-nots, daisies, poppies, and wildflower mix packets are favorites with realtors, banks, insurance companies, and other groups for use in spring promotions, employee meetings, and customer mailings. Many companies use the packets as giveaways for Earth Day, April 22.
