I am sure that you have been gardening for any length of time you have heard of All America Selections or seen it on a plant label or seed packet. Today I would like to give you a bit of background on the organization and some of this winners of All America Flower Selections For 2013.
First off from their website the “All America Selections is an independent, non-profit organization that tests new varieties then introduces only the best garden performers as AAS Winners”. This is what they do they are a group who since 1933 have had independent judges test seeds and plant varieties all across the country then determined the best of the best based on the scores of these independent judges.
While of course gardening is never an exact science because of the variables of the weather choosing tested and proven winners is always an advantage that will help to level the playing field when it comes to those things out of the gardeners control. I, as I am sure many gardeners have had years when some of their favorites have not performed very well even though the cultural care given was the same. That is why I try whenever possible to get the best plants and seeds for my garden. Having a consistent plant makes it so much easier to obtain the best results and even if the weather is a factor. I believe that you can not go wrong when investing in varieties that do well in areas across the country because they have proven their ability to adapt.
These are truly some amazing varieties and I am sure that if you try them in your own garden you will find that it was well worth the effort to locate them.
Using the All America Flower Selection For 2013 will probably change your prospective when it comes to your flower garden there is nothing wrong with that. A garden is ever changing and if you are going to make changes it is always good to feel confident that you have chosen winner to make that change with.

The best part of gardening is that each year you can change things that you did not like the year before. I think that that is what draws so many people to gardening each year. The ability to put in some effort and then reap the feeling of accomplishment that you feel when you haven allowed you creative talents take over is such a fulfilling feeling.
While I do not personally condone that idea of trying to outdo the neighbors I must admit that it is certainly a good feeling when your competition, Oh I mean neighbor stops to admire and complement those beautiful flowers out in the front garden. Even more satisfying when they want to know your secrets.
