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

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...

Deryn Davidson: Award for demonstration garden is a bright spot during tough times - The Daily Camera
We regularly have loads of honeybees, native bees and butterflies, and we even get hummingbirds visiting throughout the summer. Some of the Plant Select species featured in our gardens that are both water-thrifty and attract pollinators are Wild Thing sage (Salvia greggii) and chocolate daisy (Berlandieralyrata). Wild Thing is a woody perennial with bright pink flowers. It can be a little tender during harsh winters, but with an extra layer of mulch, ours have been going strong even in tough clay soil. The chocolate daisy is so called because when the sun warms the yellow blooms, they truly smell like a milk chocolate bar. This cheery plant is tough as nails, needs very little water once established and blooms all summer. Other showstoppers include grasses that provide beautiful fall and winter interest once the flowers are done. Among these are Undaunted Ruby muhly, a bunch grass that grows 20 inches tall and 24 inches wide. In autumn it has brilliant tiny red flowers (Yes, grasses bloom!) that en masse look like delicate pink-red clouds. Standing Ovation little bluestem is another grass that is stunning in fall and winter. During the growing season it has upright, spiky, blue-green leaves that transition to shades of red, orange and deep purple in the fall. We leave it standing all winter, and seeing those warm colors kissed with frost and surrounded by snow can be stunning.
We are honored to have our gardens recognized and would love for you to stop by and visit them (9595 Nelson Road, Longmont, 80501). Offices are still closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and employees are working remotely. You can also visit plantselect.org for more information on Plant Select plants, get design ideas and find other demonstration gardens in your area.

A Garden Designed to Run Wild - The New York Times
On the moor, and in the wood.” The ode is one of three the poet wrote to his favorite flower — commonly known as the lesser celandine or fig buttercup and recognizable for its glossy, egg-yolk-yellow blooms — which is also a persistent weed. This fact, that what some see as a flicker of natural brilliance is to others a nuisance to be removed, puts the lesser celandine, along with many other wildflowers, in a precarious position. And indeed, so many gardeners come down on the side of “nuisance” that to cultivate wildflowers purposely, to allow them to be the focus of one’s labors, even, is something of a rebellious act.This is an idea that has captivated Caroline Kent, the founder of the British stationery company Scribble and Daub — which offers letterpress cards hand-drawn with vibrant pen-and-ink illustrations — ever since she first encountered the gardens at Great Dixter in East Sussex, England, an ongoing source of inspiration for her, almost a decade ago. The historic estate consists of a mid-15th-century timber-framed manor house that, in the early 20th century, the architect Edwin Lutyens, acting on commission from the house’s owner, Nathaniel Lloyd, combined with a 16th-century yeoman’s hall; Lutyens also laid out a six-acre garden. In 1954, Lloyd’s son Christopher, who had always lo...
