I wanted to thank everyone that sent a donation submission for our "End of the Season Giveaway!" We received over 200 requests from all over the United States.
It's very rewarding to be able to give back to various organizations during these tough economic times. As we're all aware, gardening and beautification budgets are usually some of the first to go when facing budget cuts. We're hoping that through these donations we are able to make a small, yet positive impact on the garden community across the country.
Charlene Rasmussen from the Friends of Wayne public library in Wayne, NE shared some photo's and kind words on our Facebook page.
"Thank you to American Meadows for the flowers we will plant at Wayne Public Library. They are safely planted in pots and being lovingly tended until the brutal summer heat in the Midwest ends and we can give them permanent homes."
We heard from the Mount Desert Island YMCA in Mount Desert, ME with a nice "Thank You" for the daylilies that we donated.
"Thank-you American Meadows for your generous donation of daylilies! The Y will use them to beautify the grounds for many years to come! Such a great company; we highly recommend their plants and bulbs!"
Our friends at BioWorks Garden in Tampa, Fl also sent along some nice words from the donation they received.
"We unpacked a huge donation order from American Meadows that included dahlias, day lilies, Asiatic lilies, astillbe, and agapanthus. They also sent some milkweek (asclepias incarnata). We'll post lots more pictures when everything comes up and starts blooming. The agapanthus and dahlias are already coming up!"
Thank you to everyone that sent in submissions. Hopefully we were able to provide you with plant material and make a difference in your garden this season.
Thanks again and Happy Gardening from your friends at American Meadows.
