But there is a whole group in this flower family that are perennials that you can buy once and enjoy year after year. Among many others I present to you the aster: In my experience, asters have more of a wild flower look about them, a little longer, a little sparser, but just as vivid in color as mums and they are a fall bloomer.

My spouse and I have gained quite a bit of experience planting bushes, trees and flowers over the years. Our two biggest experiences were in planting thousands of pine seedlings from the state nursery on our 40 acre farm (in our younger years)and planting around 3000 spring flowering bulbs on our current 6 acres.

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Call me naïve, but when we first bought our home in 2012, I thought that all I needed to know about gardening is that I needed to water my plants and make sure the weeds don’t get overgrown.

7 Tips to Conserve Water and Save Money

Family Balance Sheet

Use water collected from dehumidifier to water your garden and flower pots. It fills up quickly on sweltering days and I use that water for my flower pots.
