Spring Garden TourInterests | June 04, 2016 | Nik Manojlovich
Join Nik Manojlovich for a SPRING GARDEN TOUR, as he shares what’s growing (and what’s not) in his cottage garden.
Perennials mentioned in this video:
Creeping Phlox – a hearty perennial available in a wide range of colours.
Oregano – a perennial herb that’s nice to have on hand for recipes.
Peonies – although somewhat finicky, nothing beats the showy blooms this plant produces.
Iris – stunning, elegant blooms available in a wide range of colours, from white and pale blue to bright yellow and even peach.
Columbine – wild flowers that bloom early in the season: great for attracting hummingbirds.
Hens & Chicks – hearty succulents that thrive in rock gardens.
Hosta – worry-free plant loves partial shade and is easy to divide once established.
Lady’s Mantle – a favourite amongst gardeners: easy to divide.
Sweet Woodruff – this hearty plant that quickly spreads in a shady woodland setting.
Lily of the Valley – fast-spreading perennial with headily fragranced blooms.
Great White Trillium – Ontario’s provincial flower: grows wild in a woodland setting.
Listening to great music is an important part of every Weekend at the Cottage but so is reading a good book! Keeping a good reference book close at hand is a great idea for when you’re gardening and I love this recently released book The New Canadian Garden – Mark Cullen. Visit iBooks to add this important gardening reference book to your collection.
