About this site
We interrupt this hiatus for an important message: on August 27th Cold Climate Gardening will turn five years old, and you’re invited to help celebrate. Last year, I interviewed several garden blog pioneers. This year, you get to interview me. Ask your questions in the comment section below, and I will answer your questions on the anniversary.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I still have a few lesson plans to work on. See you on the 27th!
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.
