  • Gardening 101: SafflowerGardening 101: Safflower
    Safflower, Carthamus tinctorius The first time I discovered the blazingly cheery safflower was when I visited my florist friend Gayle at her Mill Valley atelier, Bloomingayles. Both fresh and dried safflowers were artfully added to wreaths and flower arrangements, the clusters popping with sunny brightness. Was this the same plant… Read more »
  • Floret’s Favorite BooksFloret’s Favorite Books
    I have been obsessed with books and the library ever since I was a little kid. All of the librarians knew me by name and would go to great lengths to help me find new books I hadn’t read or gather my long list of special requests and order them… Read more »
  • Rethinking Occasional Outdoor Lighting: A Kinder, Gentler, More Nature-Friendly GlowRethinking Occasional Outdoor Lighting: A Kinder, Gentler, More Nature-Friendly Glow
    When considering holiday lighting for outdoors, spare a thought for the neighbors—and we don’t mean the human kind. Crepuscular and nocturnal animals are blinded by glare (think of a deer in headlights) or disoriented in a way that seriously affects navigation, pollination, hunting, and mating. Ecologists would rather see no… Read more »
  • The Great Cardamom Caper (Or How I Got Duped by an Impostor)The Great Cardamom Caper (Or How I Got Duped by an Impostor)
    Once upon a time (well, in 2017), I wrote a post about a trio of gingers I was growing at home: ginger, turmeric, and cardamom. At least, I thought it was cardamom. While I warned would-be home-growers of cardamom not to expect its famously aromatic seeds, because the plants rarely… Read more »
  • Floret’s Favorite ThingsFloret’s Favorite Things
    Over the years I’ve been flooded with countless emails and messages asking what I recommend for boots, raincoats, tools, books, jewelry, and camera gear. With the holidays coming up, I thought it would be fun to put together a big list of things I use on a regular basis and… Read more »
  • Ein FeuerwerkEin Feuerwerk
    Meistens spricht man bei Pflanzen von den Blüten, wenn man ein Feuerwerk meint. Manche Gewächse schaffen es aber, dass plötzlich ganz andere Assoziationen geweckt werden, die nicht immer unbedingt der Jahreszeit entsprechen müssen. Neulich stand ich im Botanischen Garten, schaute in den wolkenlosen blauen Himmel und musste plötzlich an Silvester… Read more »

    Fall is the season for pumpkins, leaf peeping, and enjoying the last bit of warm sunshine before winter kicks in. And if you love garlic, it’s also the perfect time to plant it for a summer harvest. Garlic needs the winter to grow, so it’s critical to get it in… Read more »
  • Green Therapy: What Is It and Why You Need It for Your HealthGreen Therapy: What Is It and Why You Need It for Your Health
    Although green therapy is easy to self-administer, it sometimes takes a prescription to tell people that it’s necessary. Spending time in nature, whether in exercise or relaxation mode, benefits wellbeing—physical and mental, as well as social. And there’s ample medical research to back this up. To wit: Living in an… Read more »
  • Gardening 101: AmaranthGardening 101: Amaranth
    Amaranth, Amaranthus caudatus As a multitasking fiend, I always appreciate a plant that can do many things. One fine example is amaranth. Not only is it a leaf vegetable, but it’s also a grain and a cut flower. (It’s the trailing tassle-shaped flower, commonly known as Love-Lies-Bleeding, that you are… Read more »
  • Foraged Bracken: Autumn’s Most Beguiling Floral Design ElementForaged Bracken: Autumn’s Most Beguiling Floral Design Element
    Bracken, a coarse leafed and prolific fern, is a common site across heaths and hills and around woodland edges where it flourishes on the dry margins. Spreading via its vigorous rhizomes, it’s not a plant that you’d want too close to your garden where it would swiftly take over, but… Read more »
  • Ginkgo: De-Stinking an Ancient DelicacyGinkgo: De-Stinking an Ancient Delicacy
    In New York City, there are street tree seasons that smell very good—like early summer, when lindens are in bloom. And there are seasons that can smell very, very bad: Fall, and ginkgo trees dropping fruit. And this is true wherever female ginkgo trees grow. These ancient trees, some of… Read more »
  • Ich bin die Neue!Ich bin die Neue!
    Ich las einmal auf einem Blog, dass man gar keinen neuen Bücher braucht, sondern die 30 Jahre alten Exemplare ja immer noch gut genug seien - und zwar für mehr, also nur ein Tischbein damit wackelfrei abzustützen. Schon mal gar nicht braucht man neue Gartenbücher. Und dann versucht man, Tiere… Read more »

    Some kids collect coins or Pokemon cards. Garden designer Wambui Ippolito collected passport stamps as a child. Her mother was a diplomat, so the family traveled often, living in their native Kenya, Costa Rica, and throughout Europe.

  • Required Reading: ‘Punk Ikebana: Reimagining the Art of Floral Design’Required Reading: ‘Punk Ikebana: Reimagining the Art of Floral Design’
    “Gathered, gleaned and composed in situ” is the sub- subhead for the latest offering in book form from California-based flower decorator and friend to Gardenista Louesa Roebuck. Conceived as a maximalist tome that tears up the rulebook for authors as well as florists, our obvious first question is: what’s “punk… Read more »
  • Ask the Expert: Edwina von Gal, on How to Help the BirdsAsk the Expert: Edwina von Gal, on How to Help the Birds
    Every May, I thrill to the arrival of bobolinks singing out as they settle into a grassy neighborhood meadow. With their black-and-white wardrobe and jaunty blond caps, they instantly transform winter into spring. The bad news is that bobolinks are on the decline, according to the 2022 State of the… Read more »
  • Garden Visit: A London Pocket Park with a Famous NeighborGarden Visit: A London Pocket Park with a Famous Neighbor
    Designers talk often about the “borrowed landscape,” but it’s not just about distant hills or making the most of your neighbor’s mature planting. It can apply just as much to capturing architectural details. Or, in the case of Tom Stuart Smith’s new Reflection Garden, which opened this summer, the entire… Read more »
