Rainy day reading, reflecting on my last three weeks of garden visits and guest gardening in the USA 🇺🇸 I’m a bit behind on posting and have some pictures of my time @chanticleergarden still to post. It has been a very interesting trip, I’ve learnt more about the mid-Atlantic region geographic, horticulturally and culturally. I’ve also got a list of UK gardens I want to see again when I get home, we are spoilt with a wealth of good gardens and gardeners. It’s so useful to see the different approaches here though, I’m full of thoughts and ideas, now I just need to get my hands dirty again. #wcmtuk#learning#gardensofinstagram#newyork#ryenewyork#horticulture#plants#postwild#thomasrainer#claudiawest#nativeplants#naturalisticplanting#future
Native wildflowers are vital to the health of our ecosystem. The Discovery Center has native pollinator gardens that encourage native insects to feed. From monarch butterflies to beetles and flies, many local species thrive when plants are in abundant numbers. #TheDiscoveryCenter#Nativeplants#AudubonPA#StrawberryMansion
The Wildlife Gardener’s plants are here! We are happy to announce that native wildflowers and shrubs will be available for sale every day we are open. These beauties are grown locally and are selected especially for enhancing your yard to be a bird and butterfly magnet. Stop in any day except Sunday, 10am to 4pm #nativeplants#gardeningforwildlife#wildlifegarden#capemay
When you're cleaning out your garden this fall, it's ok to leave some dried plants, flowers and leaves for wildlife! Insects, birds and other species will use them for food and shelter in the colder months to come. Photo via @Clarry1. #Garden#NativeGardening#NativePlants#Wildlife#Goldfinch
One of the joys i get as a Landscape designer is getting to see what was once just an idea on paper come to life and grow into its own. Here i get to see just under a year after its installation a thriving meadow garden landscape coming into its own. I love getting to see all the life enjoying its fruits and how the landscape has transformed from its past as an overgrown entaglement of invasives and poison ivy.
EDIBLE FOREST GARDEN IS FOR ALL!
