Hoarding Houseplants? Turn Over a New Leaf

I love plants and gardening, grew up in a family nursery and have a self-taught horticultural background. I have also dragged many pots full of hapless greenery around the country with me in my numerous moves before I learned to let go. I’ve been given countless clippings and sick plants because I have a “green thumb” before I had the courage to just say no. Geez, this sounds like I’m a recovering plant addict....more

I've Been Working on the Nur-sery! (Part 1)

Picket Fence

You know those picket fence headboards?  Pottery Barn and others sell them for kids’ rooms.  I want one for my bed.  Queen size.  Painted white.  I said this to a friend a few days ago, while we were at breakfast.  He’s 86 and recovering from his second eye surgery.  He’s not adjusting well to the fact that parts of his body have to be mended, repaired, medicated.  He’s used to running up and down his own hill, carrying his own heavy equipment. Now he’s depressed.  A couple of us call every day to see how he feels or to ask him to go out for a while. ...more
