Planting a Window Hayrack

Planting a Window Hayrack

Posted on Aug 08, 2017 | by J Kirkpatrick

The first question often asked is, "What is a hayrack"? Just as the name implies, hayracks were used years ago in English barns to supply hay to farm animals. They were placed up high and the animals could reach up and pull a mouthful of hay to eat between the widely spaced bars.


Transitioning plants from outdoor spaces to indoor spaces

Transitioning plants from outdoor spaces to indoor spaces

Posted on Jul 01, 2017 | by K Kelley

Lately I've had numerous requests for plants that transition well from outside in the summer to inside when the days turn chilly. And why not? If you have the space and the right conditions indoors, there's no sense in tossing out a perfectly healthy plant at the end of the season.

The month of June is well-known as the most popular month for weddings, which means lots of entertaining and family visiting. Even with so much to do and so little time, we all want to put our special touch on these memorable events.


May Day Celebrations

May Day Celebrations

Posted on May 01, 2017 | by Kerry K

Ah, the first of May--is your May basket ready? In our town, we celebrate May Day with arrangements of cut flowers hung on our doors, competing for ribbons for the best designs. Our tradition was started by the local garden club in the 1960s, relatively recent compared to the first May Day celebrations.


Creating a Living Wreath

A living wreath is a great way to begin spring gardening. Whether you choose to use it as a May Day door decoration or table decoration, it will be a fun project! And best of all it is portable - if that nasty cold weather hits, it is easily moved to a sheltered area.


Spring has sprung...

Spring has sprung, the grass is riz........but wait, it's only February where I is!! Capricious Mother Nature is at it again, tempting us with a taste of spring, whetting our gardening appetites, then frustratingly serving up another blast of bland, tasteless winter weather. What's a gardener to do?

In the last decade, container gardening has gained tremendously in popularity. And why not? Container gardens are perfect for those with restricted space or difficult planting conditions, and bring color and life to both indoor and outdoor areas. Containers can accommodate whatever the gardener wants to grow--annuals, vegetables, perennials or house plants, and new innovations make them easier to manage than ever. These days, clevery designed self-watering planters eliminate the uncertainties inherent in the watering process, and do it with style.


Evergreen Foundation Plants - backbone of the home landscape

Evergreen Foundation Plants - backbone of the home landscape

Posted on Feb 01, 2017 | by Kerry K

Evergreen foundation plants have long been the backbone of the home landscape. Originally, these plantings were considered necessary to disguise the unattractive exposed foundations of houses and porch constructions that were common in the early part of the 20th century. Additionally, they aimed to tie the house to the ground visually, and to soften the architecture.


Ornamental Kale - a jewel for the winter garden

Ornamental Kale - a jewel for the winter garden

If your cold-weather garden is dreary, consider adding ornamental cabbages for a showy pop of red, purple, pink and white. When done in groupings, these lovely plants make a striking display, and while the cabbages don’t actually flower, the multiple layers of ruffled leaves stand in terrifically. They do best in cool weather so in most places they belong in the fall garden though they can be planted in spring in cooler climates. Cooler weather promotes greater leaf color so if you’ve planted in spring they may need afternoon shade in warmer climates.

If you’re looking for a plant to provide interest in winter when most everything has gone dormant, look no further than ornamental dogwoods. These dogwoods are not trees but rather shrubs whose winter twigs provide incredible color – usually red or yellow.
