In recognition of National Pollinator Week (June 17-23, 2019), I'm spotlighting plants and combos that perform the important work of providing hospitality for these illustrious garden guests. Planting a variety of flowering plants, selected to offer a steady succession of pollen-producing blooms over many months, will keep your garden abuzz with activity and, of course you'll get to enjoy the gorgeous results all season long. ..

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you’ve heard me talk about the “re-boot” I’m undertaking in parts of my garden at home. This past year I’ve been able to indulge my plant lust without remorse. I’ve had lots of open ground to work with due to heavy edits I’ve been doing in my front, side, and back gardens. ..

It's been a busy and fun week filled with lots of garden-y goodness. I'm having a blast working in my own garden. I'm taking extra care as I prepare for the summer season as I'll be welcoming scores of garden-lovers from the Northwest into my garden this June. (It'll be open on the Friday leg of the garden tours that are part of the HPSO Study Weekend.) I work best under a deadline, so this has been perfect. The bonus is that summer is only just beginning by tour time, so my husband and I will be able to enjoy it all season long. ..

The spring planting sprint is well underway and the race is on in my garden at home and in the client gardens we have in production. I've had my eyes open this week and this post shares some of the highlights from this week. It's a small taste, but I hope you enjoy. ..

While I shop for plants all times of the year (a happy hazard of my job) I shift into hyper-shopping-mode in spring as I juggle sourcing plants for multiple client projects and work on primping my personal garden for the new season. ..

Flowers and fresh, unfurling foliage—there's a lot going on in the garden this time of year and it all happens so fast. I was on vacation for a few days this week and while I love to get away, it's always a bit bittersweet leaving my garden this time of year because I don't want to miss anything. Below is a very small sampling of what's blooming and starting to wake-up. ..

It's a busy time of year and there's plenty of work that keeps me tied to my computer in the studio, so getting out and about to the retail nurseries, wholesale growers, and other peoples' gardens is an enjoyable must-do. Keeping my fingers on the pulse of what's looking good and keeping my eyes peeled for new plants to add to my repertoire is important—and fun, too! ..

I love flowers as much as the next gardener—I find the riot of spring blooms pure delight. But I’m a greedy gardener and I want more! At home, and in most of my client gardens, space is at a premium so I try to select plants that will provide enjoyment for multiple seasons—and the larger the plant, the more I expect. ..

In the video below, I demonstrate a process of first envisioning a planting concept based on shape, form, texture and color. After which I identify two different groups of plants for two different growing environments in order to recreate the visualized scene. ..
