LIVE IN OR AROUND NEW YORK’S HUDSON VALLEY? Then I hope you’ll stop by and say “hello” next Saturday. My garden will be open as part of the Garden Conservancy’s “Open Days” program. What you’ll see on your tour here, and links to other nearby gardens that you can visit on the first day of June:
Can’t visit on the first day of June? My next open day is August 17.
Unfortunately, the roses are not presently in bloom, thanks to a recent round of rather unpleasant weather. Like rain (six inches in the past four days). And hail (frozen bullets pummeled the plants last Tuesday).
As you can imagine, the roses were not amused.
The Serpentine Garden. Have a steep hill on your property? Do what I did, and create a garden there.
The Kitchen Garden. The twelve raised beds in this garden serve as my “living supermarket.”
The Woodland Garden. My favorite place when the weather turns hot and humid. Just now, the woodland is exploding with Primulas, Polemonium caeruleum, Astilbe, and oodles and oodles of ferns. How I designed this shady retreat.
Other nearby gardens/events you can visit on June 1:
Margaret Roach, Copake Falls. Do you remember the hail storm I mentioned earlier? It hit my friend Margaret’s garden — and how. But Margaret is a storm-trooper. In lieu of a garden tour, she’s hosting a rare-plant sale and a number of free garden lectures at Church of St. John in the Wilderness. More details.
