My experience, after working in the plant nursery for more years than I care to count, is that some plants will perform admirably in the summer but must be stored for winter.
For centuries people have attributed meanings to flowers, herbs, and various plants. Interest in floriography, or the language of flowers, soared during the reign of Queen Victoria. This cryptologic style of floral communication could “say” what members of the society dared not speak aloud: the rigid social constrictions of the upper class helped to create a “language” that is indeed beautiful to behold.
Enjoy this nice gardening post by Emma Lane. As the snow starts to fly, isn’t it nice to look at beautiful flowers and to realize that we can help them survive until spring?
Don your flannel shirts and gloves! Fall is here and the garden is calling.
