Image of Margaret Roach's gardenIf you are a fan of Martha Stewart Living magazine you might be interested to learn that editors Margaret Roach and Andrew Beckman will each be opening their gardens to the public as part of the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days program. Details and directions are on the Conservancy’s website.

This and other garden events for upstate New York are listed in the sidebar as I learn of them, and are also posted to a public Google calendar.

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.

All the gardens are in Dutchess or Columbia Counties. They will be open from 10am to 4pm on September 9th. The link that says “Conservancy’s website” is the one that will tell you this.
