Back by popular demand! Jumpstart your spring garden with a burst of color! The Spring Awakening garden showcases early-blooming, pollinator-attracting perennials that are the first to emerge after a long winter’s nap. Blooming from the first signs of spring through summer’s end, the Spring Awakening garden will enliven your landscape with the hum and buzz of butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds galore. The purples and pinks of the Lavender and Prairie Smoke Avens provide a gentle backdrop for the Dwarf Poppy and the shimmering yellow of Basket of Gold. This 15 plant early-pollinator garden is designed for full sun and fits into a 60 square foot space.

*When paired with the complementary Bees ‘n’ Blooms, our 96 sq. ft. late-season pollinator garden, your landscape will be buzzing with life all summer long. If you purchase both the Bees ‘n’ Blooms and Spring Awakening gardens, then you will receive a special, professionally designed plant by number map that combines the two gardens into one 160 sq. ft. design.

What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 14 to 30 starter plants in 4-inch pots.* Plants will be small relative to their mature size, and they will not be in full bloom.
  • First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap! During the 1st and 2nd growing season, xeric plants will be in the establishment phase – requiring regular watering to encourage a deep taproot system, and not yet having reached their full size.
  • On average, allow 3 years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity!
  • Gardens will easily fit in a small car  - yes, we're talking Mini Cooper small - unless you ordered multiple gardens (we're not judging). One garden will come in either one or two 2 ft. x 1 ft. trays (pictured left).
  • *When necessary, Resource Central shall select appropriate plant substitutions.

What Customers Say

Garden In A Box Made It Easy

“GIAB made it easier to imagine tearing out that grass and replacing it - we didn’t have to do the work of figuring out how many plants to buy, what it would cost, what to get, and where to plant them. I think it would have taken us another year or two to get around to making the change if we’d had to do all that ourselves. Thank you for running this program! We look forward to scrapping the rest of the grass next year!”
