Priase for Flowering Vines Webinar

Aug 18, 2017

My goodness this was wonderful to be able to learn something on line when I have the time to look at it. Can’t wait to use some of the vine ideas on a front entrance area to my church. It has big cedar trees that had the lower branches cut off and now they look…

Your shade gardening book is so helpful!

Aug 17, 2017

We live on a 2.5 acre wooded lot and your book was the information needed. Your beautiful book is creased and dog eared and loved. Thank you for inspiring me…

You have inspired me with my Shade Garden

Aug 16, 2017

I am a HUGE fan of yours!  I was hooked after I watched your Hydrangea video on YouTube. I lost my Grandmother in January and she was an amazing gardener. I have been struggling with her loss and wanted to create a wonderful garden that I know she would be proud of. I have ordered…

Creating Magic in Small Spaces

Aug 14, 2017

I have been reading my way through Garden Design’s summer magazine. Given this issue has 149 AD-FREE pages and the publication’s dimensions (8.5” x 11”) are the largest of any garden magazine I know, I will be engrossed in this gorgeous magazine for months!

Sea Buckthorn

Aug 10, 2017

Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) Last month I enjoyed strolling through some amazing gardens featured on the Cape Elizabeth Garden Tour (Cape Elizabeth, ME). One especially lovely seaside garden had an unusual looking plant that I had never seen before. The willow-like leaves reminded me of Tamarix. I learned it was Sea Buckthorn (photo right from…

Gladiolus Atom is HOT! HOT! HOT!

Aug 5, 2017

Gladiolus ‘Atom’ ZOWIE! This is one dazzling Gladiolus! I remember helping my grandmother cut huge bouquets of these from her garden. Yet I was never a fan of “glads”. For some reason they always reminded me of funerals. My ‘cold shoulder’ melted when I saw a photo of Gladiolus ‘Atom’ in a magazine. Last winter…
