Dispatch from mom! Our assistant editor's mom sent us snapshots and observations from the 2011 Philadelphia Flower Show, which runs through this Sunday, March 13. Here's a look at one visitor's favorite displays and plants from this year's show.
In our latest column from Marigold and Mint, Katherine Anderson shows how to plant and harvest sweet peas (including how to create a lattice wall) and how to arrange these delicate flowers into sassy summer centerpieces.
A cool test tube chandelier, exactly what seeds to winter sow, highlights from Maison & Objet, a lost wedding ring is found growing on a carrot, the end of botanical Latin, a memoir about growing pot, and more in today's Links We Love.
Ken Druse puts together "recipes" for your garden—whether you are looking for a Midwest prairie, a collage of trailing vines, a woodland nook, or a night-blooming palette—showing what to plant for each theme. Each garden "recipe" is captured in these beautiful images by Ellen Hoverkamp. The images are not only stunning, but practical—Druse and Hoverkamp put ground covers at the bottom, shrubs in the middle, and trees at the top.
