In fall, many gardens are highlighted by the fragrant “sweet autumn clematis,” which covers itself with frothy clouds of small flowers. Until now, the late-bloomer was only available in white, but growers have created a new variety, Sweet Summer Love, which blooms in cranberry-violet. Fragrance is sweet cherry-vanilla. This new clematis is one of five […]

Create a Big Display with Small Bulbs

wp-bulb-blitz
In our front garden, there is a bed that runs along the sidewalk. I love to fill it with spring-blooming bulbs every year — usually tulips. Because tulips don’t put on a good show after the first year, I treat them as annuals. Said another way, they make their way to the compost pile after […]

Gardening at Age 99

wp-maggie-in-the-garden
What is a hobby you can do the rest of your life? Gardening — with adaptations. Take it from a couple of 99-year-olds. My mom, Maggie, claims that gardening is her psychiatrist. She wants to have a garden even if it doesn’t grow or produce anything she can eat. Just to see it and talk […]

[fsg_gallery id="1"] I just returned from a visit to Mosaïcultures Internationales, taking place this year at the Montreal Botanical Garden. From the photos, you can see that it’s an amazing show, which runs through Sept. 29. If you are in the area, make plans for a visit. The event takes place only once every three […]

Garden Vandals Strike, Yet Hope Prevails

I went out to weed the front garden early this morning while it was still cool. The bed runs right along the sidewalk on Colchester Avenue in Burlington, VT, so I like to keep it nice. Every year, my spouse and I plant something different, featuring colorful annuals. This year’s design includes a banana tree, […]
