The Wired Gardener

– Posted in: Book reviews, Recommended Links

I just learned from The Wired Gardener, an email publication of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society put out by Janet Evans, that Larry Hodgson now has a companion volume called Annuals for Every Purpose. Haven’t gotten it out of the library yet, but if you’re looking for the one, you might as well check out the other as well.

The Wired Gardener comes out once a month and usually has links, book reviews, and a listing of garden-related events put on by the PHS and other organizations in the surrounding area. I say “usually” because this month the link section was missing, and it’s my favorite part. Even though I don’t live close enough to Phillie to take advantage of the goings-on (and I wish I did!), I am always discovering something new in the book reviews and links. You may find it worth your while as well, even though it’s not technically about cold climate gardening. I couldn’t find any way to subscribe to this newsletter from the PHS website, which seemed kind of strange to me, but you can get on the mailing list by sending an email message to LISTSERV@HSLC.ORG

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
