Where in the World was Angela All Summer? Part I

Gnome, Plants Nouveau Welcome to The Weeding Gnome Brought to you by Angela Treadwell-Palmer & Plants Nouveau

This week's Garden Notes: My favorite hydrangea in the trial garden. --- September 19, 2014 --- The Snow Just Melted, Right? The summer of 2014 has nearly come and gone and I missed most of it. My favorite seasons are pretty much any season that is not winter. I’m not a fan of winter, especially last winter, and the thought of the 41 degree F temps predicted for tonight makes me cringe. My garden looks so beautiful right now and I have so many plants to get into the ground still.trial garden plants nouveau Even though I’ve been home for the last two weeks, I spent most of the summer traveling to trade shows, giving lectures on various topics and visiting many plant breeders. I calculate two weekends that were spent at home, in my garden from June to September. I did not empty my travel jewelry bag from late May to last week. Boy, was I tired of wearing the same earrings over and over. And how many suitcases did United Airlines loose and re-route for me this summer? Let’s just say there were too many nights spent in hotels with the “Female Overnight Bag” – the standard issue of deodorant, shampoo and a white tee shirt to wear to bed. I’m not complaining about the travel. It was all fun and well worth the time. I wish my trips were a little more spread out though. I also wish my children played winter sports. That would be so much easier for me than spring and fall sports. Imagine an entire Saturday to work in the garden in the spring or fall. I can’t …phlos trial garden, plants nouveau I call myself the kamikaze gardener. Between lacrosse and soccer games, hours before getting on a plane – whenever I can fit it in. It’s not Zen-like or relaxing in anyway, but it’s what I can do during these busy times. My developing ¾ acre garden/trial site requires about four hours a week to keep the weeds at bay and tend to the many plants from around the world. That doesn’t include time to plant, water or mow the ever-shrinking grassy patches. Those four hours are just maintenance on what’s already in the ground. Missing all that time really put me behind and I swear, I never even got to arrange my aloe/agave/dyckia/bromeliad collection on the back deck. I remember taking them outside in May and never going back to finish the job. Finding time to write in the summer was really hard. I promise to do a better job next year, but I figure you’d rather read a good story than read a post that says, “No time to post, so please look at some pretty pictures while I’m out and about.”   Right? So where did I go and what did I see? It’s way too much for one post, so here’s Part I. After Cultivate’14 in Columbus, OH (formerly known as OFA Short Course), I was off to Cincinnati for the Perennial Plant [...Read More]
