Visiting “on-air” with good friends

It was great fun to spend time recently with legendary Columbus Garden Expert, Tom McNutt on WCMH TV to discuss 50 High-Impact, Low-Care Plants.  Visits with Tom are always enjoyable.

Also, frequently on Mondays,  I do satellite radio interviews with Mario Bosquez on “The Living Today Show” on  Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius Satellite Radio. Tune in and call in with all of your questions:  The number is 646-313-6012.  For updates on other media coverage, click on “Media” above or check the “Calendar” page.

More about NYBG /Lynden Miller Design

Some of you asked what else I enjoyed at NYBG during my visit and I have to say one of my favorite areas is the Ladies Border. Both the Perennial Garden and the Ladies Border have been designed and overseen by the talented garden designer Lynden Miller since 1987. It seems anything Lynden touches I adore including the Conservatory Garden in Central Park and Bryant Park. A particularly striking combination in the Ladies Border was between golden Mexican-orange blossom (Choisya ternata ‘Sundance’) and David viburnum (Viburnum davidii). (photo) Important to note is that the Ladies Border is south facing and protected, and features half-hardy plants not normally grown outdoors in New York. The garden is hardiness zone 6a and 6b. The Choisya is zones 8-10 and the Viburnum is zones 7b to 9. It appears zone-denial is working in this case.
