Prim and proper gardens are fine, but there is just nothing in the world quite as beautiful and amazing as a rolling field full of wildflowers. Back in 1980, wildflower enthusiasts Ray and Chy Allen opened their garden to the public, a business which soon evolved into a mail-order company for seeds and gift items. American Meadows has been supplying gardeners with wildflower and vegetable seeds, perennial plants and bulbs ever since, and became one of the first online gardening sites in 2000. Today, over 15,000 customers per day shop the site’s selection of more than 1,000 garden products. The Allens sold the business to loyal employees in 2008, who carry on their traditions and excellent reputation. In addition to acquiring seeds, plants, and gardening tools, customers can utilize a database of gardening and planting guides and how-to tips.
