Frost doesn't mean the gardening season's over - Fairfield Citizen
If I can’t consider trees part of my “garden,” how about some shrubs in the flower beds? Butterfly bush is still coughing out a few fragrant blossoms. Rhododendrons and heaths look as spry the morning after the freeze as they did during the warm day before it.
HARDIER VEGETABLES AND FLOWERS
Okay, so maybe the guy on the radio meant vegetables and herbaceous flowers when he was talking about gardening. Yes, bean and marigold plants definitely froze to death as recent night temperatures plummeted to 29 degrees Fahrenheit at my upstate New York home, as did zinnias, corn, peppers, cosmos and bachelor’s buttons.
But even weekend gardeners grow more than just these tender vegetables and annuals. Black-eyed Susans are still dressed up like it’s summer, and ’mums -- doesn’t just about everybody plant mums? -- are unfolding new blossoms. Perennial flowers generally are unfazed by temperatures down into the 20s.
Among annual flowers, there are plenty that likewise are unfazed by freezing temperatures. Strawflowers, for example, as well as snapdragons and pansies are still perky. These latter two are actually perennials that are grown as annuals this far north, and they survive our winters if temperatures don’t dip too low.
Look around and you might even find some tender annual flowers still treading water through the frosty spell. A wall, paving or tr... Oct 15, 2020
Florists 'bomb' Philly mailboxes for 2020 election ballots - WHYY
We have lots of dahlias. It’s prime dahlia season in October,” said Love. “They start deep and rich at the bottom of the arch, then it gets the bright happiness close to the mailbox. That’s the goal: be bright and happy at the mailbox.”
Love is both a farmer and florist. She grows everything she uses on a five-acre, certified natural farm in Roxborough. The bread and butter of her business had been weddings, but that dried up this year. Last April, her prospects were dire.
Over the summer she launched a flower delivery service where people can pre-order a box of flowers and have it delivered weekly to their door. Called Porch Petals, Love keeps the delivery radius tight – she only services Philadelphia’s Northwest neighborhoods near her farm.
To her surprise, it worked. Porch Petals caught on and saved her business.

“Porch Petals is a COVID pivot, but it proves our community here in Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy – they are phenomenal. I would start weeping if I think about it too much,” she said. “This community saved our farm.”
Love is fortunate that she is both a grower and an arranger: she supplies herself. Other florists who rely on shipped flowers have fared much worse as international supply chains have broken down during the global pandemic. Flowers, after all, cannot sit in warehouses.
United By Blooms is ostensibly a get-out-the-vote campaign addressing anxieties about voting by mail and the tenuous financial position of the Postal Service. Love says, “I don’t have answers to any of that.”
More important to her is that this floral arrangement be a love letter to the community that proves, even during a pandemic, flow... Oct 15, 2020

Meet Your Neighbor: New feature at Bench's is cutting your own flowers - The News-Messenger
But the farm isn’t just about choosing flowers. It is also about spending a little quiet time in the field amidst the flowers and the birds and butterflies which flutter amongst them.“We have found that a lot of people have been enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of the flowers and fields. Not a day goes by that I haven’t seen a hummingbird, and we have yellow finches and purple martins,” Jill said. “We encourage people to take pictures and tag us in their photos, because it’s just so beautiful.”The farm has attracted families who find it is a fun way to spend time together outdoors. Kelsey Auger of Genoa visited the farm with her sister and 7-year-old niece.“We made a day of it. We got there about 10:30 and the flowers and the fresh air and the aroma were all just so beautiful,” Auger said. “It was a nice little getaway close to home.”Kristen and Jeff Dominique visited the farm on a recent Sunday morning to purchase fresh flowers for their home and for family.“We’ve always been fans of Bench’s. We shop there in the spring for our plants and in winter we go to the Christmas Shoppe,” Kristen said. “I think The Cut Flower Farm is something we needed on this side of town. It was a good Sunday morning outing to get away from the hustle and bustle.”The Cut Flower Farm at Bench’s is at 18063 W. Ohio 105. It is open Friday through Sunday 9 a.m. to noon. Because flowers are sensitive to being cut in hot weather, hours will be expanded as cooler weather arrives.Contact correspondent Sheri Trusty at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sep 7, 2020
Master Gardener: A butterfly garden | SteamboatToday.com - Steamboat Pilot and Today
Butterfly on a purple coneflower.Vicky Barney/courtesyA few years back, I planted a small garden outside my back door. I wanted to add summer color to the native chokecherry and serviceberry bushes that grow at the property’s edge. To my delight, I inadvertently started a butterfly garden.I notice butterflies when hiking in the high country. They flutter about in a variety of colors and sizes, stopping briefly here and there, flying off before I get a good look at them. Sometimes, I see them congregating on the ground around a mud puddle. Research tells me these are mostly males, likely getting nutrition from dissolved minerals. One can learn to identify butterflies by noting size, color and pattern, and flight behavior, but to date, I can only easily recognize swallowtails and cabbage moths. This year, I find I am hosting a new butterfly, a fritillary perhaps? These visitors arrived in my garden in August when the nonnative purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) and a native aster st...
