"What's New for 2020," by the Whistling Gardener

With a few possible exceptions, most of the new 2019 plants are long gone and we will have to wait until next spring to discover what the breeders have in store for us for the 2020 season. As a retailer however, we get a sneak preview and from time to time, if the growers have a crop mature early, we actually get to bring in some of those new goodies in the fall.

"Creating winter interest in our containers," by the Whistling Gardener

I recently read an article on designing with foliage in the garden by a local author, Christina Salwitz. Her main point is that while flowers are ephemeral, foliage can last all season and therefore should be the first consideration in any garden design - be it in the landscape or simply in our containers.
