How do you define a beautiful garden or landscape? Is it a perfectly manicured space, free of weeds with coordinated blocks of color? Perhaps it’s more relaxed and informal. In this episode, we focus our discussion around native plant design in a post-wild world with Thomas Rainer, author, teacher, and landscape architect. Thomas describes his vision for a garden that is a hybrid of both cultivated design and the wildness of nature. We talk about how we can create a natural garden design that meets our aesthetic requirements yet functions more like landscapes in the wild.
In spite of a very short growing season (the first frost of the year shows up about mid-October, and the last is typically mid-May), Niki Jabbour knows every trick in the book and more to get the most out of her year-round garden. From time tested winners including row covers and cold frames, to her newest addition, a large polytunnel/greenhouse located adjacent to large raised bed vegetable garden. This podcast is an encore edition of our original podcast episode 022 and conversation with Niki from October 2017. Be sure to check out the extensive show notes there, including a lot more pictures of her garden and helpful links.
