Here are some stunning shots of magnolias, sweet scilla and hellebores, among others from the Williamsburg, Ma B and B.
GOT AZALEAS AND OAK TREES?* Remember, cut up oak leaves are a great mulch/fertilizer for azaleas, on account of the acidity. Try it out but make sure the leaves are shredded to avoid ground rot.
This Lilac is cut almost all the way though and still producing buds! Amazing!
WARM EARLY SPRING AFFECTING PLANTS
*** Whether it's my crocuses that flower early and die early, the lilacs that are budding way too soon, or the wondrous daffodils showing splendid color earlier than I can remember, the warmth of late winter and early spring presents it's own set of problems.
Matt Sutkoski of the Burlington Free Press has a great piece on what happens when warm/frost cycles hit grapes, apples and maples.
GARDEN TRAVELS* If you have Dish Network in Vermont, tune to channel 266 and watch GardenTravels, with the hilarious Dave Egbert. It's on the Angel2 network at various times during the week. Dave journeys around the country spotlighting beautiful and unique gardens in his own inimitable way.
