Rope bridge to add adventure to Philadelphia Flower Show
Water is a fundamental part of life on Earth, and it’s also an attractive garden feature. It is mesmerizing, inspiring, calming; it is the lifeblood of urban cities, commerce, and life itself.The beauty and science of water is the theme of this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show, beginning March 2 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.The centerpiece will be a 25-foot cascading waterfall, laden with thousands of tropical flowers and — for the adventurous — a suspended rope bridge through a rainforest canopy.“Lot of exhibitors are doing formal gardens with really big fountains. Some are doing waterfalls,” said Sam Lemheney, the chief of shows and events with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. “We’re also talking about gardens with lack of water. Stoney Bank Nursery and Bank of America are doing an exhibit around xeriscaping, with plants that don’t require a lot of water.”There will also be an exhibition called “Windows on the Waterfront,” with demonstrations of water management along the Delaware River. A one-day Water Summit will feature a TEDx-style sympos...Feb 8, 2018
Korge matriarch celebrates 100th birthday with family, friends
If love truly makes the world go ’round, Josephine Arden Korge discovered that secret of life early on. It’s her 100th birthday week — she was born Feb. 7, 1918, in Lawrence, New York — and as family and friends are quick to say, she has lived life with love.At least 50 are flying in to celebrate with cake, a dinner, and a mass with reception at St. Jude Melkite Catholic Church, the church she helped found with her husband and 12 other families of Lebanese descent.“She is clearly a great example for us on how important it was to give back and to have a sense of duty and love toward the community,” said her son, attorney Chris Korge. Josephine Korge graduated from St. Mary’s, a Catholic women’s college in Ohio, with a degree in chemistry and went to work with the Sperry Gyroscope Company. She was part of the development of the Norden bombsight, the precision aeronautical instrument that helped the U.S. and its allies win the Second World War.“Her generation saved the world,” Chris Korge said. Afterwards, she moved to Miami, and met and... (Miami Herald)Feb 8, 2018
Farewell to Helen Eliason, who leaves a beautiful garden for us all to enjoy
Fraim Senior Center, just to name a few — Eliason’s enduring legacy is a small garden as shy and retiring as she was, but equally resplendent in character. Helen adopted the garden, not far from her home in Wawaset Park, as a personal challenge. A neglected gem, she undertook its restoration after a long business career and applied her intelligence, management skills and ability to attract like-minded people willing to work.DELAWARE SPACES: Farmhouse is core of Centerville estate.PAY UP:Delaware's biggest toll scofflaw owes $175,000.Goodstay Gardens, on the campus of the University of Delaware’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in Wilmington, sits hidden from view. Surrounded by boxwood hedges and the constant thrum of traffic along Pennsylvania Avenue, it hearkens to the time of the DuPont legacy gardens, the early 1900s, when Longwood, Winterthur and Nemours were springing to life under watchful eyes and hands.Likewise, the small garden at Goodstay was undergoing its own renewal in the 1920’s when Ellen Coleman du Pont Meeds hired landscape architect Robert Wheelwright, who designed Valley Garden Park, to update the garden. The two later married.Maintaining the characteristic Tudor style, they changed the focus from vegetables and flowers to a completely ornamental garden, with each of six geometric enclosures planted thematically. Helen Eliason and friends followed the original plans for Goodstay Gardens by landscape architect, Robert Wheelwright, for the garden owned by Ellen Coleman du Pont Meeds. It was planted in the early 1900s. (Photo: C...Feb 8, 2018

The corpse plant flower at the Dunedin Botanic Garden has opened.Famous for producing one of the world's largest flowers and a nauseating smell, comparable to rotting flesh, the flower is expected to draw large crowds.Dunedin City Council says people can visit the plant at the winter garden glasshouse, which will be open for extended hours until 8:30pm on Saturday, and on Sunday from 9am to 8:30pm.Botanic Garden team leader Alan Matchett said the flower began opening just after 12pm on Saturday. By the evening the flower wasn't yet fully opened but the smell was there.The plant was gifted to the garden 10 years ago and this is the first time it has flowered."There's not much time to see it; the flower only lasts around 24 to 36 hours," Dunedin Botanic Garden Collection curator Stephen Bishop has said.He said it was worth a visit because the gardens had no idea when it might flower again in the future.The first time a corpse flower opened in New Zealand was at the Auckland Domain Wintergarden in 2013 and thousands of people flocked to see and smell the rare plant.NZN...

Betty Montgomery: Snowdrop plants add warmth to winter gardens
If you have clay soil, you need to mix in some organic material to provide the drainage needed during the dormant season.
Nancy Goodwin of Montrose Garden in Hillsboro, North Carolina, is noted for the wonderful display of snowdrops in her garden. She is the one who got me interested in growing them after seeing photos of the fabulous displays in her woods. She has one long path through her oak forest that I would love to try to duplicate one day.
There are many different species of snowdrops and some have different requirements. Goodwin states that G. nivalis and G. elwesii are ones that grow best in her garden. She has found that the fancy-named varieties do not grow and bloom for her as well as others, but she has had good luck dividing the ones that preform well for her. She says that as they are growing in her garden, she starts dividing them and spreading them along her snowdrop path in the woods.
Goodwin has created a woodland setting that is ideal for her climate. It is cold enough for them to grow and they get enough sunlight under the deciduous trees. She thinks this is an ideal way to display these charming flowers because the white stands out against the brown leaves. They return year after year and as the clumps grow, she divides them, and moves them to locations in her garden. Not all of her snowdrops are along a path. She has some displayed in small pockets tucked in a rock garden and other areas. They do look best in a mass planting due to their small size.
To do well, snowdrops need to have temperatures that drop to at least 20 degrees Fahrenheit but not colder than 30 degrees below zero. This gives them the “chilling” time they need to flower properly. These bulbs are native to the Mediterranean area where they are cold in the winter and hot in the summer.
It is thought that ... (Spartanburg Herald Journal)
