Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
A new how-to blog aimed at educating gardeners about planting and growing bulbs has been launched by Longfield Gardens, one of America’s top purveyors of quality flower bulbs.
Longfield Gardens is no stranger when it comes to bulbs. The new blog reflects more than 80 years of experience in growing and selling Dutch bulbs and is designed to help gardeners simplify the planning process and select the best bulbs for each unique space.
“We’re taking the guesswork out of gardening and giving people tips on designing beautiful outdoor and indoor spaces,” says Hans Langeveld, co-owner of Longfield Gardens. “Our blog shares our top experts’ advice about bulbs to give our friends confidence and be successful gardeners.”
Langeveld is the third generation of Dutch-American bulb plantsmen and has a vast knowledge about bulbs. Langeveld, along with co-owners, cousin Pete Langeveld and longtime colleague Dave Strabo, strive to provide the best bulbs at the best price to their customers. With the addition of a new blog, Longfield Gardens not only educates customers with the best bulb information but it reflects the simplicity and pleasure of bulb gardening.
While Langeveld contributes the majority of blog posts, he does not do it alone. Longfield Gardens’ team of bulb experts, growers and designers also share ideas on planning, selecting, planting and caring for bulbs.
The blog includes breathtaking inspiration photography of Longfield Gardens’ creations, gardens and combinations that readers can take and implement in their own yard.
Various experts will offer tips on the blog, like those from creative director Marlene Thompson, who has 15 years of experience in the horticulture industry and product developer Jen Pfau, who shares ideas on how different bulbs look and act together in the garden. Pfau selects the ‘Perfect Together’ collections to create beautiful colored blooms and interesting foliage in the garden. Another contributor is Dave Strabo, longtime industry expert, who identifies which bulbs produce better flowering results, fuller plants and stronger stems.
“Buy with confidence. Love what you grow. That’s our approach. We’re gardeners ourselves and we want fellow gardeners to be comfortable shopping with us, knowing exactly the quality of product they will get,” says Langeveld.
