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.

Last week’s blizzard seem to open the gate to a real winter complete with snow storm after snow storm, and hard-core cold. We’re being tested on our ability to stay upright on icy patches, and on keeping our cool when we can’t get where we’re going on time. But we’re also being reminded about what we love about […]

As storms go, this one (we’re calling it Juno?) was pretty great — at least for those of us without travel plans or emergencies. For me, it struck just the right balance between excitement from the big buildup in the media and bluster-full winds, and a kind of compulsory coziness.
