Design definition and texture in new landscape garden bed

I’m on a roll.  Gardening is good for the soul, and for the exercise and creative outlet it provides during this stressful time.  My free time is often spent surfing the web for the perfect plant since I’ve been avoiding nurseries.  As fast as they arrive in the mail, I’m expanding garden beds to contain them!

Since the move last summer, I’ve been lonely without my recommended daily allowance of blooms.

There were a handful of hastily pre-sale planted impatiens in the front of the house, but nary a flower anywhere else.  I couldn’t even make a tiny posey for my desk.

It was sad.

Having filled the new beds that I created along the dry creek, I decided I needed some more plants.

I turned to my winter sources, searching for my favorite plants online.  I’ve slowly been planting in front of the creek above of the sidewalk.  I’ve

Corpse flower blooms in Cibodas Botanical Garden

The odor comes from amino acids that come out through the surface of the cob. The stench produced when the flowers bloom attracts the attention of various insects, and they come and help pollinate the plant

Jakarta (ANTARA) – A giant corpse flower (Amorphophallus titanum Becc.), reaching 291 centimeters in height, has bloomed once again in the Cibodas Botanical Garden Conservation Center at the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) in Bogor.

The flower, which is a part of the taro tribe (Araceae), is also known as the carcass flower as, when it blooms, it emits an odor so foul and potent that it can be smelled within a 100-meter radius.

“The odor comes from amino acids that come out through the surface of the cob. The stench produced when the flowers bloom attracts the attention of various insects, and they come and help pollinate the plant,” said one of the

Partridge Creek Farm starts Resiliency Garden Project

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) – A new project from Partridge Creek Farm is addressing the possible food shortage stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

Partridge Creek Farm is building garden beds at peoples homes and teaching them how to grow their own plants.

It started the Resiliency Garden Project, promoting gardening in communities across Marquette County. Partridge Creek Farm is building garden beds at peoples homes and teaching them how to grow their own plants.

For every garden bed ordered, they are hoping to donate a garden bed to someone in the community. The goal is to build 40 garden beds to help fight food insecurity in our area.

“We’re very afraid that we’re at the very end of the distribution chain, and we may see some serious shortages. So, our goal is to build a strong community, growing a lot of its own food and learning how to preserve the food

MVRDV’s mirrored art depot is topped by a public garden

Work is nearing completion on a new art depot by MVRDV that offers visitors insight into the world of art preservation and restoration. Named Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, the project features an eye-catching mirrored facade and is topped by a public garden.

Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen looks a bit like an oversized mixing bowl and reaches a height of 34 m (111 ft) in Rotterdam. The project was first unveiled back in 2015 and will host an open day in September 2020, after which the artworks will be carefully moved in. It’s due to open its doors to the public a year later in September 2021.

Great Garden Gear for Kids

Mother And Daughter Harvesting Radish On Allotment

While you’re waiting to get back in the garden, how about sharing and fostering your love of gardening with the children in your life? Giving them their very own tools and supplies can make them feel not only grown up, but also at home in the garden and excited to dig in, so to speak.  Here are a few options.


It’s easy to find gloves for little hands, but most of them are 100% cotton.  To ensure a secure grip, select cotton gloves that have palms dipped in rubber.

Hats & Sunscreen

While baseball hats for children are common, beach-style hats with wide brims provide better sun protection.  Better still are hats made with fabric that has substantial sun screening properties, such as UPF 50+ fabric to protect kids from the harmful effects of the sun.

Children’s sunscreen is a no brainer when it comes to little ones and

6 Ways to Celebrate Lawn and Garden Month

Each year, the month of April pays tribute to our lawns and gardens. Spring is a time of regrowth and awakening, a time when we’re eager to get out and enjoy warm, sunny days at long last. Especially now while much of the world is shut in at home, taking solace in our lawns and gardens can be a great way to cope and keep ourselves busy.  Wondering how you can celebrate National Lawn and Garden Month? Let us help you count the ways!

Composting isn’t as hard as it seems, plus it can greatly reduce your garbage volume while also enriching your garden and helping reduce methane released into the atmosphere (a major factor in climate change). It’s simple–all you need is a

5 Easy Tips for a Great Garden

Getting your garden off the ground doesn’t have to be difficult.

Incorporating simple strategies to help you find the right plants and give them what they need will have your plants sprouting in no time at all, and with minimal effort on your part.


1. Grow Plants That Will Thrive in Your Climate

You may love the lush look of tropical palm trees, but if you live in a cool-weather planting climate they might not be the best choice. One of the very first things you should do when you decide to establish a garden is to learn what your UK hardiness zone is.

This will dictate what will grow best based on winter temperatures. That means you can find plants that will overwinter outside so you won’t have
