    You know those little plastic ID tags that come tucked into the pots or flats of plants you buy at a shop or nursery? The tags you usually toss as soon as you get home? Join the club: few gardeners pay those tags any mind; they already know there’s not much information to be gleaned […]

    Can you name one potted plant that wouldn’t look great peeking over the edge of a galvanized metal trough? Me either. And let us not forget this is the sort of planter that improves with age. Sturdy, rust-resistant, and long-suffering, a galvanized planter develops a soft gray patina–the perfect foil for all shades of green leaves. […]

  • 04/19/18--03:00: Gardening 101: Italian Arum

The variety shown here, Arum italicum ‘Marmoratum’, holds an Award of Garden […]

    It all started off so well. My delta maidenhair fern was my pride and joy, its delicately drooping fronds hanging over my bathroom sink. Then winter came, the radiator switched on, and my fern’s leaves turned from papery to crispy. Before long, it was resigned to the compost heap…. What now? Photography by Mimi Giboin […]

    Among the things we’ve bookmarked on the eve of Earth Day: a weekly flower pop-up in Dobbs Ferry, a native plants sale, and the season’s most anticipated (and morbid) bloom. Take a look. In case you missed it: we went live on Facebook with architects Jess Thomas and Andrea Fish of Brooklyn-based Shapeless Studio. Check out […]

    Perfecting the art of container gardening is no mean feat but Sarah Raven, the Sussex-based author, grower, cook, and lifestyle guru, has built a business on her skill in combining plants. She also has an idiosyncratic brilliance for color, as recently illustrated by her Color Cutting Garden at last year’s Chelsea Flower Show. At her […]

    Does the thought of a trip to the flower market make your palms sweat? Maybe I’m projecting, but I think big city flower markets can be unnerving for most people: The crowds. The hustle. The options. The first few times I went to the New York City Flower Market on 28th Street, I left feeling […]

    Desert landscapes look like the backdrops in old cartoons, endless loops showing a lone cactus silhouetted against the sky while Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote tussle in the dusty foreground. The starkness also can be romantic, a reminder of the endless western horizon. But if you live in the desert, how do you design […]

  • 04/23/18--03:00: Gardening 101: Agave
  • Agave, Agave americana: “Century Plant” Sometimes, even in a very small garden, you need something dramatic, a focal point that catches the eye.  You might consider installing an ornament—an urn or a fountain or statue—but it would be simpler and a lot less expensive to use a plant instead.  That’s where the Agave family comes in.  It’s a genus […]

    It’s important to make an entrance at a party or in garden. For a party, you need charisma and of course the right shoes. For a garden,  all you need is an arbor, preferably covered in glorious climbing roses. An arbor is a piece of hardscape that takes a garden from meh to magnificent, framing […]

    With stone deck tiles, installing a floor outdoors can be as easy as snapping together Lego pieces. Many natural stone tiles are mounted on plastic interlocking bases and can be laid without glue or grout on a surface that’s flat and clean.

    Skymeadow by Charlie Hart is part autobiography, part garden how-to, and part self-help book for anyone suffering from a bereavement or anxiety. And I loved it. A couple of years ago, I met Charlie Hart at a cafe in Kings Cross, London to talk about garden writing. This wasn’t an unusual occurrence—I was gardening editor of […]

    Eastern Redbud, Cercis canadensis: “Pea Flowers” In early spring the distinctive and profuse flowers of eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis), a small tree native to eastern and central North America, defy color-description. Are they pink? Rose? Purple? Lilac? We need a new redbud word. Clustered against the gray bark of their leafless branches, the darker buds (magenta?) […]
