  • Native and hybrid magnolias big and small

    The magnolia family is diverse and April is the month that some of them begin to show their blooms in a most dramatic way. Among the native evergreen species are the southern magnolia (M. grandiflora) and the sweet bay magnolia (M. virginiana). The sweet bay magnolia has undoubtedly been over-used; I have seen them planted smack-dab against people’s homes on countless occasions. The southern magnolia, on the other hand, has a reputation for being marginally hardy here, so it may suffer from under planting. Selecting the right variety can solve the problem.

  • Museum Musings

  • Welcome home Warren
  • Be a green consumer

    What can we do to impact the environment less? Be a green consumer. Walk or ride a bike, when you can; reuse things and if you can’t at least recycle them. Buy less stuff that you don’t need? All are easily done, really, but what about in our gardens as we struggle to keep things beautiful during the growing season?
    Images of aphids on my perennials; squash vine borers turning my plants to mush and Japanese beetles devouring the hybrid tea roses cause me to grimace.
