Perennial of the Year 2009

Posted by on July 27th 2009 in blog

Perennial of the Week:Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa) Although Japanese Forest grass, or Hakonechloa, received the Perennial of the Year award this year I still insist that it is the most underrated perennial in the Minnesota landscape.Simply put – anyone with a shade garden needs some Hakonechloa – essentially the only perennial grass that can tolerant shade, and fortunately one with the most striking foliage color. Native to the mountain regions…

Posted by on July 17th 2009 in blog

Getting kids interested in gardening isn’t easy, so try sparking their interest by attracting butterflies. Making a butterfly garden is as easy as planting, watering and watching. As an added bonus, the brightly colored perennial flowers that attract butterflies make excellent cut bouquets for in and around your home. For a successful butterfly garden you will need a warm sunny site for the nectar rich plants to grow. Note: The…

Russian Sage

Posted by on July 12th 2009 in blog

Perennial of the Week: Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) I tend to get excited about Russian Sage – after all, where can one find a perennial that gets up to four feet tall, features huge clusters of airy blue flowers, is super hardy to Minnesota, attracts butterflies,  is drought tolerant and blooms from late June into fall? Perovskia is neither Russian nor a sage… Native to Afghanistan and Tibet, Russian Sage…

Italian Tomato 101

Posted by on June 2nd 2009 in blog

Caring for your tomato plants 1. Plant your tomatoes 12-24” apart, in rows if you are planning a large planting. 2. Plant in a sunny location as the tomato plants need as much light as possible to grow and fruit in our short season. 3. Water your tomato garden slowly and make sure to give the soil a good soaking, as there is little or no value in giving it…

Breathe in, Weeds out: Relax and Exercise while you Garden.

Posted by on May 18th 2009 in blog

Caring for your favorite flowers, vegetables and trees is good for you too. It’s good for kids to get closer to nature—to know where their food comes from, and even participate in growing it. But gardening is good for us grown-ups too. A little fresh air, Vitamin D, and our hands in the dirt. It’s relaxing. And it’s rewarding to see the fruits of your labor literally grow over the…

Fresco…

Posted by on May 13th 2009 in blog

Little did I know I would discover the key to Italian cooking my first night in Italy…. …we found a small hole ristorante on one of the side streets in the San Spirito neighborhood of Florence.  The place was everything we dreamt of Italy – red and white checkered tablecloths, cheap table wine and a dark, heavily mustached waiter whose ridiculously extreme moods ranged from unbridled anger to playful nonchalance…

New Lawns: Start with a quality topsoil spread to a depth of 2-3 inches and raked smooth. Seed your lawn area with a blend that is appropriate to the amount of sunlight the area receives Cover the seed with a thin layer (1/8”) of peat moss…

Planning & Planting a Rain Garden in Minnesota

Posted by on November 10th 2008 in blog

It’s cold in Minnesota about seven months of the year, and rainy for about two more. That’s not a complaint, it’s just an observation. I actually love all the seasons. Each has it’s own effect on my garden. Thankfully, the soil here is rich and the rapid changes in the weather make my flower beds nice and airy. I love sharing stories about my flower beds, but my most recent…

Container Gardening is for Everyone!

Posted by on November 7th 2008 in blog

Gardening in containers is a great way to experiment with color, personal style, and plant combinations. It’s also a great solution for those with restricted gardening space as the size of the pot matters less than what’s planted inside it. I prefer to garden in containers because I’m what my husband refers to as a decoration commitment-phobe. I love to change the look of my front porch along with change…
