Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Well the social side of the gardening season has just opened in the east with the show called "Trade Secrets" .. Lots of exotic and herrloom verities did abound ... I am not much of a plantsman but I know that they come for pots AFTER the plants are bought .So as a flowerpot maker I'm harvesting gardeners !!! We did The Gramercy Garden Show on Lexington Ave. put on by the Brocklin Botanical Garden and then the Boston Spring Garden show put on by the Mass Hort. Both shows were amazing. If you get the chance to hear Karol Klyne or Dan Hinkley speak they are both full of great tips and brilient information. On the East coast the next big get together is The North Hill Simposium at Mt Snow June 24th ( reservations needed) Also in June Old Sturbridge Village has a gardening get together the weekend of the 11th ,12th and 13th . Christie Hingebottum is their horticulturalist and she is a delight . I am also helping with a show called " A Place To Take Root " witch is on the History of flowerpots in North America. That show is at the US botanic Garden Wasington DC for the next 5 months. I think we will gleen lots of information on flowerpots from that show ..
                   As far as my back hillside goes the Trillium are comming up nested in the poison ivey as always . Rather poetical in a way .. All the best , Guy
