Lookee here: a blog devoted to New England Garden Events. Events with big names, like Dan Hinkley, Rick Darke, Sean Conway, Gordon Hayward, Fergus Garrett . . . need I go on? If New England is your territory, or you’re going to be in the neighborhood, this is worth checking out. And just think, you could subscribe to it in your feed reader, and always be alerted to the next big event. Need I say more?

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
