I survived the garden tour. It was great. Some of the best things were getting the garden back in shape; hearing wonderful questions from visitors; and meeting nice people.
There were a few surprises the week of the tour – most of all, an uninvited garden visitor: A black bear (right). Listen to the show to find out more.
Some of the popular plants people asked about included Cornus kousa ‘Wolf Eyes’ (below), Hosta nigrescens, and Clematis ‘Betty Corning’, which blooms for months. I was happy that the rose on the 70-foot-long fence in front of the house, ‘American Pillar’ was in bloom for the tour – two weeks earlier than usual.
