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.

Don’t forget to re-visit this POST for a quick refresher on HARDINESS ZONES.


Listen on MUSIC

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.
