Where there’s muck, there’s grass, flowers and vegetables - Financial Times

Scottish mountains. Rose garden with Albert Barbier standards © Marcus Harpur “My garden has been manured for 1,000 years”, she remarked as we passed her dense and precocious dahlias waiting to become the garden’s glory in late summer. In pre-Tollemache times, Saxons used their own and their animals’ manure in the area that is now the brick-walled garden. Along its entry wall a complete collection of hybrid musk roses are flowering prolifically in this exceptional musk rose year. Pink-flowered Felicia and white-flowered Prosperity were among the varieties planted here by Dinah, Lady Tollemache, in 1965. She under-planted them with dark purple-blue lavender Hidcote, still my favourite variety. The musks are especially happy as their roots run down into layers of Saxon shit.Beans, carrots and cabbages grow profusely inside the walls without disruption from the likes of Peter Rabbit. Peter’s fans will recall that the gate in Mr McGregor’s walled garden was not a deterrent. At Helmingham, the wall is the garden’s last line of defence. The front line is the green dragon-flied water of the deep old Saxon moat, rabbit-proof, badger-proof and grey squirrel-proof. Like the flopsy bunnies, none of this uninvited wild life can swim.If there are any Saxons out there in Britain’s melting pot, they are welcome to come and camp in my garden, dig and flood a moat and transport their crap on to the badger-free zone inside. Xa Tollemache could then make a guest appearance to thicken my borders’ back row. She has punctuated hers with a plant I have never considered for the purpose, the Himalayan knotweed. It is a favourite with planters of big wildflower landscapes as it is tall and easy to please. At Helmingham, clumps of it send up feathery white flowers to a height of 6ft from June onwards, fading to rosy pink before turning, in my experience, to a scent like fresh Saxon pig-dung. By then the late summer dahlias are out in force and its dying flowers can be cut without loss.In the 1960s, unwary London gardeners used to plant the tall giant hogweed as an architectural plant, 6ft high with a broad cartwheel of white flower, in their paved gardens. It looked good for a few weeks but was a very unwise choice. It scattered thousands of little hogweeds around nearby flowerbeds. Its leaves gave off a blistering juice that blackened the hands of anyone who gardened near it without gloves. Himalayan knotweed is much friendlier. It is not the invasive Japanese knotweed which is now a notifiable pest. The Himalayan’s botanical name has come to rest as Persicaria wallichii, increasingly used by nurseries that specialise in herbaceous plants. Xa Tollemache observes that it is much better value than the widely-used aruncus which has feathery white plumes of flower. Unlike the flowers of aruncus, those of Himalayan knotweed do not turn a dirty brown as they fade. Parterre © Marcus Harpur In her walled garden the long straight borders are backed by lines of plain wire, pulled tight on metal uprights, like the stanchions used around tennis courts. On these wires climbers make a green and flowery wall. In the beds below annuals are allowed to self-seed ...

Live a little, eat a flower | Sweet Basil and the Bee - Chico Enterprise-Record

She tears the flowers to toss with cooked pasta, shreds them into frittatas, and stuffs the whole blooms with lobster meat, fresh mint, and mascarpone. “They’re only at the Greenmarket for a few weeks at the beginning of summer,” she says, “and as a chef, I get so excited.” You can also sauté them in butter with scallions and then add beaten eggs to the pan and bake for a simple frittata. Or, toss them with spaghetti, golden tomatoes, basil and olive oil for a quick dinner. Dress them with olive oil and lemon in a salad of pea tendrils and arugula to serve with burrata and warm bread, and you’ve just made an elegant but easy meal. Traditionally you see squash blossoms stuffed with some sort of cheese mixture and fried, and occasionally as a topping on pizza. More modern is Melissa Clark’s un-fried appetizer presentation, and even more interesting are the Oaxacan squash blossom quesadillas by James Beard award-winning writer and Texan, Lisa Fain. Fain writes, “While I’m always a fool for anything fried, my favorite preparation with squash blossoms is in a quesadilla. Diana Kennedy has written about this dish, found all over Oaxaca. In true Oaxacan fashion, these quesadillas are made with fresh corn tortillas and Oaxacan cheese also known as asadero or quesillo. This stringy cheese has a mild flavor, and while it melts smoothly its thickness for some is a bit too chewy. If you don’t have access to quesillo, Monterrey jack or Muenster works just as well. And while I enjoy the flavor of grilled corn tortillas with the squash blossoms, being a Texan I still prefer to use flour tortillas for my quesadillas rather than corn.” Diana Kennedy insists they be sautéed with epazote — that quintessentially Mexican herb which is fairly easy to find dried in Mexican grocers. Epazote is like cilantro in that people either love it or hate it — there’s no middle ground with this herb. I find its mintiness adds a certain brightness to a dish. And with tomatillos and green hot chiles such as jalapenos and serranos in season, my favorite topping for my quesadillas is a bright, fresh salsa verde. Squash blossom quesadillas Adapted by Lisa Fain from a Diana Kennedy recipe — serves six. First, prep the blossoms by clipping away the pointed sepals where the stem meets the flowe...

Master Gardener: Flowers may star in garden, but remember supporting cast - The Livingston County News

At Gardenscape, I spotted an airplane sculpture that would look great in my Geneseo Garden, acknowledging our National Warplane Museum. It’s propellers have sealed bearings, which will enable their spinning for a number of years. It’s tail serves as a wind-vane, keeping the plane headed into the breeze. I also have an old hand-built wheelbarrow I got from a neighbor. I have used it for quite a few seasons to hold pots, or a succulent garden. I got tired of moving it for mowing, so now it rests in a bed of pale pink “Bigfoot” cranesbill.Julie Brocklehurst-Woods has been a Master Gardener Volunteer with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Livingston County since 2002. She enjoys helping all gardeners become successful gardeners, especially helping people identify tools and strategies to prioritize and simplify their gardening tasks. She will answer gardening questions by email: JulieBW48@gmail.com.

MARTI HEALY: Flowers, pollen, and other random possibilities - Aiken Standard

But what I still remember most from researching and writing that article was the image of the earth carpeted and canopied in blossoms of color and fragrance and beauty – ages before there were any people to appreciate it. It was well before there were many of today’s species of animals (most of the very first flowers had to contend with being trampled on or eaten by dinosaurs).And, quite intriguingly, the very first flowers existed on earth before there were any bees. Back then, beetles did most of the tracking and traipsing of pollen from flower to flower, petal to petal. Sometimes, it was carried on primeval winds and rains, the moist breath of a universe still sighing itself fully awake.This imagery came slowly back to me the other day during my morning walk with Quincy the dog – came blinking out from the dark and crumb-filled corner of my mind that seems to store such bits and pieces.I had stopped to touch a petal of a magnificent buttercream magnolia blossom, and my hands came away from the intimate encounter covered in yellow pollen. And I suddenly felt wonderfully involved – if woefully misplaced – in the natural order of things.My immediate reaction was to look for another blossom where I could deposit the pollen – rather like a dusty love note I suppose, a sort of message from Mother Nature claiming “life will go on.” I have no idea if my human hand might have already disrupted its properties and inter...

New shrub rose hybrids are easy to care for, easy to love - Texarkana Gazette

Anthony Tesselaar, president and co-founder of Anthony Tesselaar Plants in Silvan, Australia, which markets Flower Carpet roses. Surveys continue to identify roses as everyone's favorite flower—even people who don't have gardens, Marriott said. "As I say to many people, what other plant can have a beautiful individual flower, a wonderful fragrance, flower for six or more months of the year, and be easy to look after? "It's easy to argue that they are the most garden-worthy of all plants," he said. ...
