Check out the new “Gardening Questions” page. I am a master gardener who loved the program so much I went back to college and earned a plant science degree from SUNY Cobleskill in ornamental horticultural. I’ve written about gardens for more than 15 years and was a newspaper garden columnist for 12 years. If you have a garden question, I will do my best to answer it.
This week I wrote about low maintenance gardens and how I go about creating them for myself and my clients. The garden pictured below uses plant textures, shrubs and trees that offer visual interest, feed birds and attract butterflies. Annuals provide the pop of bright color.
