The irresistible rise of the rose - Financial Times
Using roses in wilder settings is also seeing a revival. Lady Ursula Cholmeley has restored 12 acres of borders, terraces and meadows within Easton Walled Garden in Lincolnshire. Among her ideas was a wildflower meadow, where roses would be trained on tall metal supports of her own design.As the plant’s stems reach the top of the support they are then trained down onto strainers – when a rose stem is pulled down it will produce many more lateral flowering shoots. “We are still learning,” says Cholmeley of her rose meadow, where in midsummer fountains of roses float above vetches, orchids and golden grasses. “The roses need to be vigorous and the stems need to be lax enough for training, and some are not hardy enough – there’s a ferocious frost pocket on the meadow.”Her favourites include the ramblers, the blush white “Adélaïde d’Orléans” and magenta “Veilchenblau”, as well as David Austin’s “Lady of Shalott” and “The Lark Ascending”, as she finds peach-coloured blooms are beautiful against the grasses. She also cites the wild rose “Stanwell Perpetual” with its soft pink flowers; in meadow settings, the wild roses (including rugosa, spinosa, moyesii and dog roses) tend to fare better – and they are often better for pollinators too with their simple, open flowers followed by juicy hips for the birds.Elsewhere, maximising flower production via intricate rose training has turned the dormant winter plants into works of art. Jenny Barnes, head gardener at Cottesbrooke Hall in Northamptonshire, has become known for her magnificent, sculptural trained roses that spiral across mellow old walls or are woven into latticed domes that will be smothered in flowers by summer. Later this year she will be teaching courses in her pruning methods.Nick Knight, meanwhile, has been fascinated by roses for decades – his only tattoo from “a misspent youth” depicts a single rose. He first began photographing them for the Natural History Museum’s Plant Power installation in 1993. “I thought there was a real beauty – and a changing beauty – even in a single bloom of this flower,” he says.
Almost a decade ago the photographer started taking pictures of roses cut from his garden that were simply arranged using only daylight at his... Apr 4, 2021
Why the Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is a magic mountain you must visit - OCRegister

Another example of the power of this location is an Australian peppermint willow (Agonis flexuosa). I was astonished to learn that this glorious tree was planted only 27 years ago from a 15-gallon container. Its girth and muscular limbs make it look like it has been there for a century at least. Its symmetry is matched by a nearby specimen of the Queensland bottle tree (Brachychiton rupestris).
Alstroemeria highlights the Chilean section that has only recently been added to the Conejo Valley Botanic Garden. The Alstroemerias we see in our gardens are hybrids between winter-growing Chilean species and summer-growing Brazilian species. These hybrids are virtually evergreen, experiencing only a brief winter dormancy period. Alstroemerias can survive drought and neglect due to their sustaining underground rhizomes. Rich in starch, these rhizomes are part of the diet of the indigenous peoples who live within the Alstroemeria’s habitat. Angel’s trumpet (Brugmansia) is another Chilean selection.
The animal which gives Conejo (meaning “rabbit” in Spanish) Valley its name is the only major pest to contend with at CVBG. Chicken wire encircles plants known as rabbit munchables.
Generally speaking, plants with strong fragrances or flavors, including rosemary and pungent sage species, are not eaten by rabbits. Lomandra, an Australian grass with chartreuse and lime green foliage, is also immune to rabbit ravages. Alstroemeria contains a toxic chemical that causes some animals to stay away while others become ill from its consumption. Not taking any chances, CVBG’s recently planted Alstroemerias are surrounded by chicken wire.
One of the most eye-catching species from South Africa is Euphorbia esculenta. The plant is currently at peak bloom and its flowers at a distance look like daisies. I learned that it is easy to grow and I only wonder why we don’t see it more... Dec 10, 2020
Sharon Hull, This Week in the Garden | Thankful for gardening on Central Coast - Santa Cruz Sentinel
I can never take for granted. I am also grateful that our mild climate allows us to grow, and grow well, an astonishing variety of plants, from woody flowering and fall-coloring deciduous plants to subtropical or Mediterranean fruits and flowers.
This year and especially in drought years, I am thankful for fresh water. That gratitude has me expending effort toward safeguarding that precious water supply, by installing drip irrigation, collecting and storing rain water and filling more and more of my garden with low-water need plants. And I am thankful for the many excellent local growers, nurseries and suppliers that furnish the materials and plants to help preserve our water. I am grateful too for the continuing efforts by many local folks to keep our air, soil and water clean and safe. Local resources like the Organic Materials Exchange (http://www.ome.sccrcd.org/find/) make possible the safe treatment and distribution of animal manures to help keep our streams clean and our soils rich. The many local activists and responsive officials who expend great efforts to safeguard our environment, making organic gardening practices feasible, are my heroes.
Two local colleges have wonderful agricultural and horticultural programs, which welcome local gardeners’ participation. We can all be grateful for the advice, information and training these college programs and personnel offer. We can also appreciate the beautiful campus gardens; both the Arboretum at UCSC and the Botanic Garden at the Horticultural Center at Cabrillo College provide a visual display that satisfies the senses and inspires us to greater efforts in our own gardens. We can also be grateful for and support the Life Lab and other garden programs provided in many of our local schools. Both our children and our schools benefit, as do our communities and the environment.
My list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the critters that live in and around my garden. Birds, butterflies, insects, salamanders, even our native Banana Slugs, add their own beauty and movement to enrich our gardens. Watching the tiny golden Lesser Goldfinches flitting from my feeder to my fountain where they enthusiastically bathe, hearing their musical calls to each other, fills me with thanks that such beauty comes to my garden.

Karen Hannis Meinhart Obituary - Mt. Holly Springs, PA | Cumberlink Sentinel - Legacy.com
David Meinhart, of Philadelphia; and five siblings: Jeanine Johnson of Emmaus, Sheila Mangano of Clifton, Virginia, Steven Hannis of Easton, Brian Hannis of Naples, Florida, and Kelly Cuetara of Downingtown. She was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Hannis, of Santa Rosa, California. She will be remembered as a selfless and caring mother, wife, and friend, as well as an unmatched home cook and Christmas cookie virtuoso, who filled the house with her wonderful singing. She was an aficionado of Broadway musicals and art museums; an avid reader of news and current events; and a dog lover, among the many passions that she passed to her loved ones. Karen will be laid to rest in Mt. Holly Springs Cemetery following a service that will remain private due to COVID-19 restrictions. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to World Central Kitchen (wck.org), a non-profit organization she admired that believes in the power of food to unite people, just like she did. Arrangements are being handled by the Hollinger Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., Mt. Holly Springs, PA. Please visit www.HollingerFuneralHome.com to offer condolences to the family.

Growth in Gardening: The healing power of nature - San Marcos Daily Record
The array of different tastes achieved from a wide variety of plants is overwhelming — bitter, acidic, sweet, and so on; almost all offer an astonishing array of health benefits too.
Sight is one of the defining elements of plants due to the fact that they can help alter our moods. Looking at and being surrounded by nature can be hugely calming and restorative for the mind. One oft repeated study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information has shown that surgery patients recover faster, have fewer complications, require less pain medication, and return home sooner, when they are able to look out a window onto a scene of nature’s beauty rather than a wall, cityscape or such as they heal.
Hearing is through the wind or mechanical movement of flower heads, seed pods or leaves. We can find solitude and comfort in these sounds; they are calming and tranquil. One of the most recommended ways for busy people to de-stress is to take time out to listen to music. I would argue that there is no music in the world as sweet and pleasing as that of nature itself.
“I work like a gardener,” the great painter Joan Miró wrote in his meditation on the proper pace for creative work. Indeed, to garden and even merely to be in a garden, is nothing less than a triumph of resistance against the merciless race of modern life, so compulsively focused on productivity at the cost of creativity, of lucidity, of sanity; a reminder that we are creatures enmeshed with the great web of being, in which, as the naturalist John Muir observed long ago, “when we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe;” a return to what is noblest, which means most natural, in us.
There is something deeply humanizing in listening to the rustle of a newly leaved tree, in watching a bumblebee romance a blossom, in kneeling onto the carpet of soil to make a hole for a tomato transplant, gently moving a startled earthworm or two out of the way. Walt Whitman knew this when he weighed what makes life worth living as he convalesced from a paralytic stroke: “After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, love, and so on — I have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear — what remains? Nature remains; to bring out from their torpid recesses, the affinities of a man or woman with the open air, the trees, fields, the changes of seasons — the sun by day and the stars of heaven by night.”
Simply put, the human spirit longs to be a part of nature and not apart from nature. I would highly encourage you to get out into your garden or visit the many wonderful gardens that can be found nearby, such as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center or Austin’s Zilker Park, or the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. All amazing day trip locations. I promise that you won’t feel worse for the visit.

Biologists Discover That Flower Shapes Evolve to Adapt to Their Pollinators - SciTechDaily

Flowering plants are characterized by an astonishing diversity of flowers of different shapes and sizes. This diversity has arisen in adaptation to selection imposed by different pollinators including among others bees, flies, butterflies, hummingbirds, bats or rodents. Although several studies have documented that pollinators can impose strong selection pressures on flowers, our understanding of how flowers diversify remains fragmentary. For example, does the entire flower adapt to a pollinator, or do only some flower parts evolve to fit a pollinator while other flower parts may remain unchanged?

In a recent study, scientists around Agnes Dellinger from the Department of Botany and Biodiversity Research from the University of Vienna investigated flowers of 30 species of a tropical plant group (Merianieae) from the Andes. “Each of these plant species has adapted to pollination by either bees, birds, bats or rodents,” says Dellinger. Using High-Resolution X-ray computed tomography, the research team produced 3D-models of these flowers and used geometric-morphometric methods to analyze differences in flower shape among species with different pollinators.

The researchers could show that flower shapes have evolved in adaptation to the distinct pollinators, but that flower shape evolution was not homogeneous across the flower. In particular, the showy sterile organs of flowers (petals) adapted to the different pollinators more ...
