Gardening with a Generous Nature with Author Kris Green, Blithewold Horticulturist & Garden Blogger
You shouldn’t have to spend the earth or quit your day job (unless you want to) to grow a great garden. Learn to appreciate some of nature’s worthiest opportunists and then develop an opportunistic streak yourself. Welcome the self-sowers—they plant themselves! Let spreaders fill your garden’s gaps but practice the fine art of editorial control. Splurge on tender perennials. Your investment will pay off in late-season color for years to come when you carefully overwinter them. Join Blithewold horticulturist and garden blogger Kris Green as she presents her new book Plantiful: Start Small, Grow Big with 150 Plants That Spread, Self-Sow, and Overwinter. She will also share her favorite plants, tips, and tools for growing an abundant and colorful garden year-round.

I often tell people that we’re too busy in the gardens to get out much. That might sound like a complaint but it’s not. For one thing, I hate to miss anything here, and when we do take time out to visit to another garden, it’s a huge treat and I always come back inspired. […]
What to do with asparagus foliage
(Sep 12, '14)
I haven’t spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden this summer — Dan has been right on top of the planting, the weeds, and the harvests — but this week I found myself in there a couple of times. Gail, Betsy, the volunteers, and I had the pleasure of helping with a huge […]

Our to-do list in September is blissfully short. The gardens are as lush as can be and just need to be coaxed along until frost or until we’re ready to start moving plants around (musical perennials) and preparing for winter.
