Top Floriculture & Planting Catalog Firm Offers Perennial Spring Collections If you want to really stink up the joint - in a good way! - plump for the double, white and pink peonies. That's what you call fragrant! Gilbert H. Wild & Son, founded in the late 19th century to sell peonies, irises, and daylilies, has announced its 135th anniversary, and the springtime availability of its signature flower, the peony. The brief - but dramatic - flowering season for peonies runs from late April to early June, peaking at the May midpoint. The plant and flower-growing market size in the U.S. stands at approximately $16 billion, and what is known as the 'floriculture' segment is growing annually at approximately 6%. The rise in demand for cut flowers - chrysanthemum, lilies, and peonies, for example - is especially pronounced. Other shifts in the market are also at play: the rising popularity of gardening, sustainable living, and even home DIY home improvement triggered in part by the pandemic, have also impacted market demand. Gilbert H. Wild & Son features both an online shop and a regularly updated blog with gardening tips. Products are categorized by habitation/hardiness growing zones, the standard by which gardeners can determine which plants are most likely to flourish at their location. Peonies bloom best in well-drained soils in full sun but can tolerate certain amounts of shade. The Easy Start Daylily Collection is ideal for gardening novices because daylilies are tough, adaptable, very low-maintenance and some of the easiest perennials to grow. One customer commented: "I have ordered from many different catalogs and online shops over the years but I got to tell you guys I am impressed. Packaging was excellent." "All the live plants are green and healthy and the bulbs very nice healthy size. I will be looking forward to fall ordering." Go to https://gilberthwild.com/peonies for more information.
