Compared to most of the country our winter in upstate New York has not been too bad. The garden has enough snow cover for protection and the coldest temperature has been 8 below zero. One can't help but feel bad for gardeners down South. The catalogs have been arriving by mail or internet and I have started my Spring orders. I am ordering mostly shade plants from Asiatica, Plants Delight, and Seneca Hill Perennials. It is hard not to get carried away especially when ordering online.
I am a garden designer and plant collector living in upstate New York with my wife Kathy. Last year we gave up a twenty year garden and moved to be close to our Grandson. We are starting a new adventure and new gardens. My specialty is shade plants.
