Tony's the mad genius behind Plant Delights.
I began assessing my most vital gardening tools – like gloves and trowels – pre-season, in February. I rounded up all the gloves in...
Guest Post by Bob Hill. I have never fully understood my attraction to weeping plants and I really don’t want to pay some nerdy-looking...
May is the month designated for extra gardening coverage in the magazine I edit, so I’m in the middle of preparing that right now....
I live down the street, around the corner from PDN. I used to work there on weekends. The amazing thing is how young the gardens are, the front section I think was planted in the late 80’s thru mid 90’s, the photos above are from the new section and I don’t think they are even 10 years old.
The entire neighborhood was flat sandy tobacco fields. Tony started out mounding soil and building creekbeds by hand when they moved to the site.
The agave’s are the big surprise to me. In the dead of winter they can appear to be in trouble but once it starts to warm up in the spring they recover. No one thinks of growing that group of plants in the southeast.
That IS a waterfall and it’s utterly manmade, as far as I could tell – the terrain is flat.
Can I request more data on that waterfall? Is that whole structure a man-made folly, or is that the terrain where he lives?
Utterly impressive, either way.
Is that a waterfall?!
would love to see more !
indulge us please.
Great use of containers! I love the layout and then adding the containers on the outside only gives it that little bit extra!
I have been to his sales a few times about 10 years ago. Always spending about a $100 or more each visit. Today I have only three plants living form my purchases a Chinese Butterfly Bush and two huge lespedesas that bloom like crazy one pink the other white. Loved his gardens his Chinese Butterfly Bush had trunks the size of my arms, mine after ten years are about 1 1/2 inches. Enjoyed this posting.
I have never been so hot and sweaty in my life. But, it was great to see the garden in Fall.
a genius indeed
The morning fog that day sure makes things seem so dreamy. Perfect.
