Whether it's an exuberantly overstuffed single pot or a grouping of multiple pots, successful container plantings—just like in-garden planting schemes—strive to strike a delicate balance. Enough repetition to create a harmonious whole, tempered by a enough contrast and drama to excite without resulting in chaos. ..

I spend a lot of time in garden centers, visiting gardens, and reading and thinking about plants. This week I was at the Farwest Show here in Portland, happily immersed in aisle after aisle of plants—everything from the tried-and-true-standbys to sneak peaks at plants we'll be seeing next season in our local garden centers. And even my neighborhood walks, for that matter— all are a constant source of fresh ideas and inspiration and present possibilities for what to add next to the site. And photos, dear me have I got photos! In any given week, it's not uncommon for me to add hundreds to my coffers. ..

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of getting a sneak peek of the gardens that'll be included in this year's ANLD Designers Garden Tour coming up on June 17th. The tour includes seven gardens—each
individual, unique and chock full of ideas that you can use in your own garden. In addition to creating beautiful outdoor spaces that are enjoyed by
family and friends, the gardens demonstrate creative, thoughtful solutions to a range of landscape issues—solutions that transform these "problem"
spots into inviting gardens.

The possibilities for garden beds in different shapes are as varied as the gardeners who tend them. The internet offers a gushing, endless stream of luscious garden photos that entice, but offer little guidance in terms of how to translate that picture into an actual, in-the-ground garden. Converting the garden of your imagination into a real-world, concrete plan of action can be tricky. ..

Winning combinations come easy when you take color cues from plant details: buds, bark, stems, veins, flowers, and foliage are rich with clues. Leaves and blooms — even those that on first glance appear monochromatic — often have lots of variation. Take a close look at stems, stamens, or peer into a flower's eyes, and you'll see what I mean. ..

In 1999, Jenn and Dan Ferrante acquired a corner lot in the North Portland neighborhood of Overlook. Looking at it today, a charming craftsman home, expertly tended, surrounded by lush gardens and artful details, it’s hard to imagine its humble beginnings. But they bought the house as a fixer-upper, when the exterior spaces were overgrown and unkempt. ..
