The Q&A Archives: Centerpiece For April Party

Question: I am having a 40th birthday party on 4/14/01. I'd like to have small centerpieces for the tables, using low flowers
so people can see each other.

Do you have any good ideas on plants that I could buy now, and could nuture for the few months until
my party? Ideally, in April they would be blooming.

Answer: The most reliable April-bloomers include alyssum, saxifrages, pansies, lily-of-the-valley, and bergenia. If you start now, you might also be lucky enough to have Forget-me-not, California poppy, globe candytuft and sweet peas in bloom for your party. Best of luck with your garden, and Happy Birthday!
