Say, are there any more of those cool little plant sales going on this weekend? Why, yes, there are!
I know, you see some great gardener’s super-flowery hydrangea and you’re sure it’s something they’re doing, but actually, it’s what they’re not doing – they’re not pruning the flowers off!
You can’t plant those wonderful shade impatiens this year, because they’ve been stricken with a devastating disease called Downy Mildew. So, what are you going to put in all those shady places instead?
Now that the mowing season is in full swing, if you didn’t do it before, make sure you give your lawnmower a once-over: change the oil if you need to, and have your blade sharpened or replaced.
They’re coming. But cicadas don’t sting or bite you, and they DON’T EAT YOUR PLANTS. So no need to worry. This is what you need to know.
Most gardeners find it hard to resist stopping in at special plant sales, like two this weekend in the Philadelphia area.
Native plants are such a smart choice, particularly if you’re a lazy gardener like me, because natives already know how to grow around here so they really are carefree.
On Sunday, May 5, bring all your gardening questions to the Haverford Arboretum where you can walk and talk with a tree expert while touring the Arboretum in its springtime glory.
Local plant sales, like the ones this weekend at Bartram’s Gardens, Temple Ambler’s Arboretum and Jenkins Arboretum, are so much fun because that’s where you always seem to find the most unusual plants.
Budding branches allow you to enjoy the promise of spring, indoors or out.
There’s a plant sale coming up on Saturday May 4th at the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University and, if you’ve got any gardening books you no longer use…
With both Earth Day and Arbor Day this week, you’ll find all kinds of gardening events going on this weekend.
Last year the magnolias were blooming in March, this year they were still closed up tight the second week of April. That’s ‘normal’.
Gardeners are good at sharing. They share flowers, plants and clippings – and some things simply rooted in kindness.
The Arboretum School of the Barnes Foundation is where I went to learn more about horticulture – and you can too.
