Catskill Gardens Photo Stream

With so many obstacles—deer, groundhogs, rabbits, bears, cold long winter, unpredictable weather, etc.—gardening in the Catskills is not a piece of cake. But with a little perseverance and patience, the rewards are spectacular!

The marvelous Andes Garden Tour takes place on August 6th this year.
The tour is a fundraiser for the Andes Public Library and a chance for rookie (and seasoned) gardeners to get tips and inspiration on cultivating in the Catskills.
.
Call into the library the morning of the event to purchase a tour map.

love this weird combination of plants. it evolved over many years as things died and changed; it was definitely not planned or designed but a series of choices over time. sometimes things evolves nicely through incremental choices:

Cornus kousa ‘Wolf Eyes’
Symphytum x uplandicum 'Axminster Gold' - from elysium214
Tanacetum parthenium 'Aureum' - from elysium214
Mukdenia rossii 'Crimson Fans'
Picea mariana 'Nana'
Dianthus ‘Firewitch’
Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue'
Lysimachia lanceolata
Pinus banksiana 'Uncle Fogy'
Sedum Kamtschaticum ‘Variegatum’
Aralia cordata ‘Sun King’
Abies koreana ‘Icebreaker’

This huge rugosa garden (not my idea!! - I tried to talk the client out of it) was created 6 years ago. It is such a beast to keep looking good.
