One of our favorite aspects of working with gardeners all across the country is hearing their success stories and getting the opportunity to glimpse into their gardens. Each year we interact with tens of thousands of happy customers and collect their letters, testimonials, and garden stories from their experiences with American Meadows. We have chosen a few of our favorite stories and highlighted them below.

Kristi Steele won our Photo Contest this year with her amazing photo of a four-legged friend perched on her Black-Eyed Susans
. She had this to say about her garden, “I love going out into my gardens and seeing what wildlife that the flowers bring. All the different Butterflies, hummingbirds, and to my surprise a very photogenic tree frog! I have always found it good therapy for me to go out and work in my gardens and I think every season has its beauty.”

. “I just wanted to let you know that I have never been happier with an Amaryllis Bulb
than with the one I purchased from American Meadows! Over the holidays, my family and I were treated to a spectacular show that included two enormous flower spikes, the second of which grew to the incredible height of 28 inches, and contained 6 flowers! And then imagine my surprise and glee when I discovered, just last week, in between the vivid green leaves, a third flower stalk! It is now 15 inches tall and promises to delight us for a third glorious time! What a thrill...Thank you so very much for this superior product!"
