Christopher Lloyd and I apparently share the same philosophy: “We’re so restricted in so many areas of our lives ? have fun with gardening.” Well, that comes pretty close to Kathy’s First Rule of Gardening, which is, “If it’s not fun, don’t do it. Don’t turn your hobby into a chore.” This article by Valerie Easton is a glimpse into Lloyd’s personality and his gardens at Great Dixter. I enjoy his wit but am glad he’s never had the chance to use it on me.
When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
