A Banner Year for Hydrangeas

Today we’re in Elie Gilbert’s garden. I’ve been gardening for at least 70 years, but I’ve never seen a year like this for hydrangeas. Here in my Plymouth, Massachusetts, garden, we recently had one of the rainiest Julys on record, and the…

Patsy’s Tiered Garden

Evolving From Vegetables to Flowers

I am Laurie Fischer, and I garden in northeastern Ohio. I’ve been gardening in the Midwest for over fifty years, but this is the longest in one place. This garden began as a single vegetable and fruit garden about fifteen years ago in the…
