I like thug plants and I cannot lie

When I saw this quote/paraphrase from Sir Mixalot’s 1992 hit in my local gardening group, I thought, “Finally. Somebody gets me.” My gardening life is punctuated by love/hate relationships with plants that have to be cut back and selectively pulled out on a regular basis. Trumpet vine, wisteria, anemone canadensis, sweet woodruff, lily of the valley, and ostrich fern are a few that can be oh-so-readily named. Vigorous climbers are needed to help screen the garden from a neighboring property and...

Garden Sanctuary

Nature has asked us all to slow down. Not so much asked as demanded. So here we are, spring revealing itself more and more every day; the gardens know their path forward even if we do not. There is comfort. Bosquet path The two Yoshino cherry trees in the water garden always ask me to slow down. Their beauty is so stunning that I get lost in the time I spend taking it all in each April. This year is no different. The pink blossoms are an almost otherworldly treat. When the world feels ...

The Super Bulb

In October and November, we plant thousands of bulbs. This is because in August we dream of spring. It seems strange, but that is the time when we order our spring bulbs. While recovering from summer heat, we try to recall cooler temperatures and soft color palettes. The bulbs arrive in early October and we sort them into groups according to their designated garden. The sheer mountain of bulbs that accumulates in our Potting Shed office can seem intimidating, but we have a plan. Divide and con...

Canada Anemone, My Frenemy

I was warned. My friend told me it would spread when she offered me a handful of Canada anemone (Anemone canadensis). I wanted a groundcover for the shrubs in the front porch garden bed, so I thought a little spreading would be fine. Canada anemone, looking very innocent I assumed it would grow about six inches tall, like the anemones that bloom in early spring. I didn’t do my homework, and I was wrong. Two and a half feet is more like it. I had just cut back the rhododendr...

New spring. growth on pomegranate trees in the greenhouse emerges very early, even have a freeze. It's often our first sign on spring. Trees can be kept on a very cold porch or even in a garage bare all winter and rather dry if the temperatures don't drop below 20 degrees. Their new growth always looks fresh and like April (but in March). While there are great things to say about the democratization of design, retail stores  - the whole  'Target' thing,  and how today even garden cente...

Keep Your friends Close, Keep Your Anemones Closer

I have a sentimental weakness for my children, and I spoiled them. I’m talking about my two masculine children, Tom and Fredo. And I had high hopes they would share my love and talent for athletics. Few plants looked as good whether planted as a single specimen or as an unruly mob as the fall blooming anemones. Buds are almost as lovely as the blooms. We moved to a bigger house in 1995 when they were seven and nine and needed some lawn for all the baseball, football, and soccer I expec...

How to Stop Using Bedding Annuals in City Landscapes

Help! My town really could use some examples of alternatives to bedding annuals for its civic landscapes, alternatives that are more sustainable and better-looking to the modern eye. (I know, I know. Whenever something is criticized for its low aesthetic appeal – looking ugly – some are offended. So IS there a way to say bedding annuals are OUT without insulting people who still love them? This planting has won awards!) Above and below are the beds on either side of the front entrance to our mu...

Think Pink (and Purple)

I had a recent small obsession with pink. You may notice it in the Rose Garden – particularly with the dahlias. I chose pale pink, hot pink and a few with lavender tones to balance out the mix. I appreciate that we took the chance to use these colors. Sometimes you just have to get it out of your system; however, I won’t guarantee that you won’t see pink in the garden in the future! You may recall that I wrote about the Rose Garden dahlias in July. They have been blooming non-stop all summer...

Along the Garden Path

Garden Rebound Rosa ‘Carding Mills with Verbena bonariensis The drenching rain and the cooler temperatures are just what the gardens wanted.  Some flowering plants are re-blooming and others are just starting.  Many of the late season flowers are triggered to bloom by the shorter day lengths.  This is called photoperiodism, where a plant can sense seasonal changes in light to set it into bloom.  With these conditions, the flowering plants all seem happy. In the Rose Garden, although it’s not ...

The Iconoclastic Gardener – Breaking May’s Stranglehold  by  Scott Beuerlein

Way back in 1914, an awful calamity happened that would ruin gardening in America forever. With the seemingly benevolent stroke of his pen, Woodrow Wilson foisted the Tyranny of Mother’s Day upon us all. Soon after came the backhanded slap from the long arm of the law of unintended consequences. To be clear, I’m actually fairly okay with honoring moms.  I’ve got one, and my wife even became one too. Willingly. What I don’t like, however, is that this holiday has established the second Sunday in...

Beautiful 3D Printed Lamps!

The speed at which the 3D printing industry is developing is staggering. It can be difficult to keep up with. But these developments have undeniably opened design up to a whole new world of manufacturing possibilities, and the team at the UAU Project have taken full advantage of these with their latest creation!This beautiful pair is the Anemone and Bloom Lamps, and their sculpture-like form is an appropriate and striking hint towards their manufacturing process. The forms of the two lamps wonde...

M for Montreal 2017 Thursday: Corridor, Anemone, Pierre Kwenders & more

Thursday night (11/16) in Montreal was cold and rainy/snowy, that yucky "wintery mix" that is not so fun to be out in. On the plus side, I saw one of the best new things I've seen at M for Montreal in a while...or NYC for that matter. Corridor are the kind of band I'm prone to like, drawing influences from the warped pop of the post-punk era... Continue reading… [Author: Bill Pearis]

PLANT LISTS FOR THE DAIRY TREE FERN DESIGN

Dicksonia squarrosa Plant Lists Tree ferns have proven to be tough as old boots, capable of growing in deep shade to full sun so long as they have enough water. They are not particularly prone to any pests or disease. As the garden is maintained periodically I would recommend the use of drip irrigation to ensure that these plants do not dry out. Liquid soluble fertilisers can be applied as often as you like to improve the size and condition of the canopy. Prices start from £99.00 to...

Inspired by a cool winter palette of grays, whites and icy blues, today’s Seasonal Flower inspiration from Loop Flowers is a great reminder that single color florals can be just as beautiful as multi-colored arrangements. Though these flowers are winter favorites, white arrangements are about as classic as they come, and a trend that can inspire any arrangement no matter what time of year!
