You can visit YouTube and put in my name to see "how to" gardening videos. Want to see videos of my garden? Go to www.plantersplace.com - learn my tips for growing clematis, perennials, and more of my favorite plants.
My blue and yellow garden in May. Learn how to have more drama without the drinking problems in your garden. These plants are drought, slug and deer resistant. Many of my talks teach what plants to grow that are the most practical for different climates. Note the blue bird house and blue painted gate in the background. This is because I have trouble growing blue delphiniums - so I use blue paint instead.
This is hydrangea "Blushing Bride" and it pokes through the window in my brick wall - keeps the lovely blooms from flopping on the ground.
