    When it comes to pollinator gardens, not all are created equal. In fact, we were surprised to learn that many plants advertised as “pollinator-friendly” actually do more harm than good, either because they do not support the entire life span of pollinators and threaten native species that do, or because they are grown with toxic […]

    Chinese Fringe Flower, Loropetalum chinense While boxwood, pittosporum, and hebe may be hogging the shrub spotlight, loropetalum can put up a fight when it comes to competing for a leading role.

    Rambler roses often get overlooked for their more showy relatives, but they deserve better. Although many ramblers bloom only once per season (there are some exceptions), they continue from June and into July providing masses of flowers and scent—and for relatively little work.

    When it comes to sunscreen, I admit to being cranky. First there’s the way it makes me feel: sticky and grimy–and that’s before I’ve spent the day in the garden. Then there are all of the acronyms, numbers, and utterly unpronounceable ingredients that I’m expected to parse. As someone who’s cautious about the products I use […]

    A few weeks back, photographer Alison Engstrom and I took an early morning Amtrak north from New York City to Hudson to visit artist Helen Dealtry and Dan Barry in their clapboard house, tucked behind a hedgerow in the small upstate town of Claverack.

    German artist and designer Valentin Loellmann converted a listed stable house into a characterful, hand-built home for his family. At first, the house, located on the River Maas in the Dutch town of Maastricht, didn’t have much of a garden: “just one high wall and a field behind,” he says. “We dogged out the ground […]

Because I am perennially curious and a devout plant lover, I poked my head inside and saw the vehicle was basically a fully loaded plant-candy store with a fine selection of leaves and stems instead […]
