I attended the Delaware Horticulture Industry Expo this week. The speakers were excellent!
Michael Bowell told us to think of our garden as a flower show niche incorporating height, depth and width into the design. He said to place the containers where we want them and if they look good empty then filled them with our favorite flower. This makes a lot of sense because they get heavy when filled. He showed us a picture of a large animal water pan filled with flowers and rocks. I want to copy this using seashells.
Roy Diblik from Northwind Perennial Farm spoke two times. He encouraged us to use old plants in new ways. His slide presentation was excellent! He reminded us to use plants for weed suppression instead of mulch.
During the breaks I chatted with the exhibitors and collected all the “free” stuff. This expo gets me excited for spring and of course the lunch is great too.
My seeds arrived in the mail today. Like a kid I had to open the box right away. What kind of seeds do you plant?
