Taking the time to freshen the container plantings at your front entry will reward you all winter long and brighten your spirits every time you come home. Likewise, a window box planting can bring the outdoors in, where you can enjoy a foliage-rich scene from the cozy interior. ..

As we head into fall and wave goodbye to summer, it's the perfect time to assess your garden and reflect on what worked and what didn't. By recording your findings, you'll be able to refer to them as you make plans for the coming season.

I’ve been away from my garden for longer than usual of late. Physically out of the area for about two weeks and too busy to engage with it for about two weeks before that due to my schedule. These absences were partly planned, partly unexpected and for a duration longer than initially expected. Vacations and trips, planned or otherwise, are commonplace—so I’m not calling that out as unusual per se. But I did find myself musing on the state of my garden when I returned this last time. ..

This video is a walk-n-talk through my personal garden. In it, I show you six shrubs that are looking particularly good and that have done very well for me in my Portland, Oregon, USDA zone 8 garden. It is by no means a comprehensive account of what I’m growing—more a set of informal and impromptu comments on a few plants in my back garden that seemed to raise their hand to say “pick me” as I strolled my garden that morning. ..

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. ..

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. ..

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. ..
