2 days agoHobbies / Gardening : Digging

I almost missed the Japanese Garden, my favorite part of Washington, D.C.’s Hillwood Estate. It was hot and muggy on the first full day of touring during last month’s Capital Region Garden Bloggers Fling, and after exploring for about 45 minutes I retreated to the gift shop to cool off.

All About The Ghobi Rose

What is “cute”? by Thomas Christopher

The other day, a visiting friend gasped when he saw a rat run across a corner of the suburban Connecticut yard where I garden during the week.  I shuddered when he told me.  I could guess what had drawn the creature:  we have a henhouse full of geriatric chickens who are not the neatest of […]

Ferns – Deer-Resistant

Q: We have a very large staghorn fern in Jacksonville that we’ll be taking to an area where there are deer. Do deer eat this fern? A: I can’t be 100% positive about staghorn ferns but most ferns are deer resistant. I suppose they might nibble on tender growth in the spring but I have […]

Garden Spark talk with Karen Chapman is an early sell-out

3 days agoHobbies / Gardening : Digging

When I launched the Garden Spark talk series six months ago, I was sure there was an unmet need in Austin for people who wanted to hear top-notch designers and authors speak about garden design. So far I’ve brought in landscape architect James deGrey David and designer/author Scott Ogden and also given a book-related talk and garden tour myself. Show More Summary

Summer-tough Foliage Follow-Up

5 days agoHobbies / Gardening : Digging

Summer is my most challenging season as a gardener. Yes, really — not winter. I don’t care at all for hot weather, so I retreat indoors and don’t venture outside much until that first hint of cooler air and lessening of the Death Star that typically occurs in early October. Show More Summary

5 days agoHobbies / Gardening : Greenbow

While looking over the garden today it was clear to me that the most striking things blooming in the garden were the Lilies. I need more lilies. Of course they weren't the only things blooming. Tiger Lily 'Splendens' They just seemed to be the only flowers to not appear to be too stressed out from the lack of rainfall. Show More Summary

The Success of Mississippi State’s “Southern Gardening” by Garden Rant

These days I follow dozens of gardening channels on Youtube, especially those of Extension universities, where there are hundreds of good veg-growing videos are to be found. Except for the topic of turfgrass, videos about ornamentals are a lot less common. So naturally I noticed this guy – Gary Bachman, with an actual Ph.D. – […]

The Garden and Nursery Boat by Allen Bush

I stared out my elementary school window for years, bored out of my skull, determined to forsake fractions for adventure. The Ohio River, my escape route, was a few miles away. My curiosity for the river life was inspired by Huckleberry Finn and amplified years later by Harlan Hubbard’s Shanty Boat and the follow-up, Shantyboat […]

Brookside Gardens and a Dougherty twig sculpture: Capital Region Garden Bloggers Fling

One of our stops on the Capital Region Garden Bloggers Fling was Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland, where I was smitten by a stand of Verbena bonariensis along a formal path. I didn’t end up taking many pictures at this garden but rather just strolled through it until I happened upon the Purple. Show More Summary
