Spring Garden Tips
Creating a Beautiful Garden or Landscape

Celebrating a Lost Champion White Ash Tree (Fraxinus americana)

This month we celebrate a lost champion, the white ash tree of Sparkill New York. Despite vigilant care by Sparkill citizens, the 350-year-old tree died in 2015. But its legacy lives on in the history of the town and belief that George Washington collected seeds from this tree for planting at his home in Mt Vernon.

Growing Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis)

Brighten the summer garden with spires of bright red blooms of cardinal flowers and the hummingbirds and butterflies they attract.

Growing Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckias)

Fond memories and easy care may come to mind when you hear the name Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckias). There are more than 20 different annual, biennial and perennial species and most tolerate clay soil, drought and the deer tend to leave them be.

Dutch Elm Resistant Prairie Expedition American Elm (Ulmus americana 'Lewis & Clark')

The stately American elm once lined the streets of most American cities. Dutch Elm Disease wiped out as many as nine out of ten of these trees since the 1930's. This loss taught us the importance of diversity in landscape design and street tree plantings. There is, however, good news for those that miss the American Elm.

Growing Bee Balm, a Pollinator Favorite

Bring in the birds, bees and butterflies throughout the summer with bee balm. This long blooming low maintenance perennial combines nicely with ornamental grasses and other perennials.

Peanut Butter Shrub (Clerodendron) and Popcorn Plant (Cassia)
