  • Building Habitat Nests – For Wildlife and For Me
    by Marianne Willburn on 6 мая, 2021

    Over the last two winters, I’ve been engaged in a curious pursuit which has baffled some visitors but thrilled others – precisely the way I love to garden.  I’m building habitat nests – and it’s one of the most satisfying and artistically fulfilling projects I’ve worked on in some time. The newest nest (still [...] The post Building Habitat Nests – For Wildlife and For Me appeared […]

  • Exploring Yellow Island
    by Dan Hinkley on 5 мая, 2021

    Yellow Island I am, floristically speaking, a sybarite.  Though I will attempt to enjoy the occasional long weekend at an Oberoi or Four Seasons, especially so as the guest of a wealthy friend, and will suffer through multi-course meals that are as unsettling to my wallet as the mucosa of my digestive tract, [...] The post Exploring Yellow Island appeared first on GardenRant.

  • Container Gardening: Sarah Raven’s 7 Tips for Perfect Flower Pots
    by Clare Coulson on 5 мая, 2021

    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

  • I like thug plants and I cannot lie
    by Elizabeth Licata on 4 мая, 2021

    When I saw this quote/paraphrase from Sir Mixalot's 1992 hit in my local gardening group, I thought, “Finally. Somebody gets me.” My gardening life is punctuated by love/hate relationships with plants that have to be cut back and selectively pulled out on a regular basis. Trumpet vine, wisteria, anemone canadensis, sweet woodruff, lily of the [...] The post I like thug plants and I cannot lie […]

  • Rethinking Jasmine: The Perfect Vase for a Fragrant Flowering Vine
    by Chelsea Fuss on 4 мая, 2021

    You might be surprised to know that jasmine holds up quite well in a vase as long as you follow a few conditioning procedures. Where I live in Portugal, it continues to bloom in the depth of summer, which gave me the idea to bring a bit of fragrance and romance indoors with jasmine-only bouquets. Read on

  • Shared-space plantings don’t have to be boring
    by GardenRant Guest on 3 мая, 2021

    A guest rant by Kelly Baldry Our towns and cities are made up of thousands of individuals, many of whom will never pay to visit a garden, and perhaps have no garden to call their own.    The reality of everyday life is somewhat different to the designed spaces of historic buildings, legacy plantings around [...] The post Shared-space plantings don’t have to be boring appeared first on […]

  • Before & After: From “Fishbowl” Townhouse Garden to Private Oasis, in Manhattan
    by Michelle Slatalla on 3 мая, 2021

    The word “fishbowl” came to mind the first time designer Julie Farris of XS Space visited a client’s townhouse backyard in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. “Visible off to the right was the back of a full-on apartment building—with window, window, window looking out toward this garden,” she says. “The client definitely wanted some more privacy.” The solution? An airy

  • In White House Garden News, it’s Dandeliongate!
    by Susan Harris on 2 мая, 2021

    I'm blaming Twitter. My feed of pundits and reporters pointed me to this clip on Newsmax, a channel I've never dared look at. It shows a host mocking Joe Biden for picking a dandelion and giving it to his wife. Oh wait, "bizarrely" giving her the dandelion. So worthy of being mocked as a phony [...] The post In White House Garden News, it’s Dandeliongate! appeared first on GardenRant.

  • Katie Couric and Drew Barrymore make money off gardening products. As gardening experts do.
    by Susan Harris on 30 апреля, 2021

    Drew Barrymore Sells Lawn Care    Suddenly my social media feeds are showing me videos of Drew Barrymore ecstatically hugging bags of grass seed and telling us to Lawn Differently with "Choose Instead,"  Bag-hugging aside, I'm totally open to celebrities being hired to sell products if they're good ones and the message to consumers is [...] The post Katie Couric and Drew Barrymore make money […]

  • Gardening 101: Pink Breath of Heaven
    by Kier Holmes on 29 апреля, 2021

    Pink Breath of Heaven, Coleonema pulchellum Fragrance is such an important component in gardening. Not only does scent perfume the air and lure pollinators but it can conjure nostalgic memories. Honestly, when I see a lovely flower my instinct is to get my nose right in there and sniff. Luckily, fragrance isn’t limited to just

  • Garden Visit: A Modern CA Garden Inspired by the Classics
    by Michelle Slatalla on 28 апреля, 2021

    The ancient Greeks loved symmetry for a good reason. As do Ken and Jean Victor Linsteadt–for the same reason. By adding stone walls and a staircase to bisect and subdivide their sloped backyard into a series of mirror-image garden beds, the Mill Valley, CA couple have created a calming sense of balance. Both the house and the

  • Relax, it’s just weather
    by Elizabeth Licata on 27 апреля, 2021

    Where would we be if we couldn’t complain incessantly about the weather? Such whining is harmless, as it has zero effect, and it’s fun. I do it all the time. I love the four seasons, but I don’t like being cold. I was taken aback recently, however, by the major weather-related freakouts that occurred when [...] The post Relax, it’s just weather appeared first on GardenRant.

  • Huge Rift at American Hort Society over Sale of River Farm
    by Susan Harris on 26 апреля, 2021

    I reported here last October that the American Horticultural Society had decided to sell its historic River Farm headquarters, and mentioned some blowback from the community. Well! Since then the blowback has turned into a tsunami of opposition, including from local legislators, and now half of the AHS board itself!  Yes, despite being told not [...] The post Huge Rift at American Hort Society […]

  • Outdoor Living: The Chef-Designed Outdoor Kitchen, via DCS Outdoor Appliances
    by Remodelista Team on 26 апреля, 2021

    We often look to chef’s kitchens for small, smart details, borrowed from professional cookspaces, that make cooking seamless: think easy-reach utensil storage, warming areas, and multi-basin sinks for easy cleanup. But we’ve yet to see the same principles applied to outdoor kitchens—until now. In warm weather, and especially now, we love the idea of not

  • Wisteria: How to Make It Flower
    by Michelle Slatalla on 26 апреля, 2021

    Why won’t a reluctant wisteria bloom? There are lots of possible reasons. Bad attitude, for one. This is a vine that wants its way in the garden. Show it who’s boss–and persuade it to flower–with proper care. And prune it hard. Despite its reputation as an invasive bully in the garden, wisteria can be finicky

    by Susan Harris on 23 апреля, 2021

    This week I cycled around downtown Washington and stopped to see my favorite garden there - the Smithsonian's Ripley Garden, created and maintained by Janet Draper. (Janet's profiled and mentioned several times here on the  Rant.) There I was gobsmacked and inspired by Janet's use of orange tulips, which she wrote to tell me are [...] The post Wow’d by Orange Tulips in the Smithsonian’s […]

    Winston Chiu, Anastasia Cole Plakias, and I all are passionate about eliminating waste.

  • Gardening 101: Cucumber
    by Kier Holmes on 20 апреля, 2021

    Cucumber, Cucumis sativus You can toss cucumbers in salads, enjoy them pickled, flavor water with them, and even slice and rest them on eyelids to reduce puffiness. Cucumbers are, indeed, a multitasking fruit. Wait, what…a fruit? That’s right, while in the culinary world they fall under the vegetable category, they’re botanically fruits as they grow

  • Step away from the sprinkler
    by GardenRant Guest on 19 апреля, 2021

    Guest post from Heather Olsen It was March 17. We had to leave the park earlier than the four-year-old wanted because the one-year-old needed a diaper change and a nap. Much whining ensued. I wouldn’t stop to buy an ice cream cone at the burger joint, the mile-long bike ride home was all uphill, and [...] The post Step away from the sprinkler appeared first on GardenRant.
