Kerry Mendez just emailed me about the Great Gardens and Landscaping Symposium: “Six dynamic garden lectures by nationally recognized speakers, great handouts, food, door prizes, and garden gifts. The event takes place at The Equinox Resort in Manchester, VT. Overnight packages and day only rates available. Speakers include garden designer Julie Moir Messervy; Charlie Nardozzi of the National Gardening Association; Joe Kunkel, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and past President of the Perennial Plant Association; Heather Poire from Proven Winners; and perennial specialist Kerry Ann Mendez of Perennially Yours.” For more about the speakers, topics, agenda and registration fee, visit the symposium’s web site or call Kerry at (518) 885-3471.
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.
