|Garden Center Scene|
This year I have visited many of the garden centers, greenhouses and nurseries in my area of Central Ohio. It inspired a decision to do a series of posts to highlight the ones that I like and tell you more about them. That is coming right up, since I have been (after buying my plants!) out getting photos of the places in the first part of this series.
First on the list:
- Bakers Village
- Oakland Nurseries
- Yonies Greenhaus
These are all located to the North and Northwest of the City (Columbus). Eventually I hope to highlight more, but I think this is enough for my plate at the moment.
The other series is beginning on my website, Ilona’s Garden. I have been writing up plant profiles of plants I have grown, and there were so many annuals it was just baffling where to start. But as I planted up containers, the bright idea of having posts filled with the profiles of those “container recipe” plants would fulfill three benefits in one: portraits of annuals, growing information, and pleasing combinations!
Part One, Favorite annuals…Container by container
Also continuing to widen the ‘style and design’ opus of the site. Victorian Gardens is a topic I find of historical interest, but one that I little relate to as a gardener. That is, until you start talking about “grottoes”, “ferneries”, etc. -then suddenly I find I am as taken with such pursuits as much as anyone.
