Keep your garden changing with these ‘Giants of August’

One of the features I enjoy most about perennials is their ability to alter the complexion of my garden every month. Whether they are coming into bloom or going out, they are always interesting. As the overall shape of each plant changes throughout the season, so does the personality of my garden.

Beyond ‘Wineglass Watering’

I would hope that by now most of you have taken to heart what I have had to say about proper watering. It is the one single activity that will make or break a garden. It seems like such a simple task but in reality it is one of the hardest skills to teach a person. Even in our industry where employees are working with plants every day we are constantly challenged to find the right person to stick on the end of a hose.

Shifting gears for the summer

It all seems to happen so fast. For months and endless months this year we have been dealing with cold cloudy days and sloppy soils. The thought of dragging out a hose and watering something wasn’t anywhere near the top of my to-do list. In fact, often times I was trying to figure out how to get excess moisture out of my garden. Well, guess what? It’s time to shift gears and get back on a watering regime that is both beneficial to the needs of our garden and sensitive to the laws of conservation. In other words, it’s time for my summer diatribe on proper watering.

ARLINGTON — The Fourth of July in Arlington begins with Pancakes in the Park at 7 a.m., in Haller Park, when registration for the Pedal, Paddle, Puff runs from 8 - 9 a.m. until the race starts at 10:30 a.m. The Pedal, Paddle, Puff triathlon begins at Haller Park with the bicyclists riding up river to River Meadows County Park on Jordan Road. The paddlers in canoes and kayaks then proceed down stream back to Haller Park, where they hand the baton to the runners (a.k.a. puffers). The runners head east on Burke Street to Twin Rivers Park and back to Haller Park.

June — time for spring planting

Normally, most of us think of June as summer. After all, June is when our kids go on summer vacation. June also contains the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. In fact, after June 21, the days actually start getting shorter (now there’s a depressing thought). So the feeling that June should be summer is fairly normal. Except that in the northwest, summer really doesn’t start until July (some would say July 5th).
