New England Grows! is a big landscaping tradeshow in Boston and I got to see old friends like Kate and Russ French of OESCO where a 20 foot scarecrow blew fiercely over the exhibit of great OESCO tools.
I spoke to Linette Harlow at Pride’s Corner Farms about the plants they grow for various plants you will find at garden centers in the spring, I loved this display of succulents growing in a slightly rotting log. I count this as another form of hugelkultur.
John Courtney at Aquascapes Unlimited told me that sedges made excellent controllable plantings for wetlands, or often wet gardens.
I talked to many other people and you’ll be hearing about all I’ve learned very soon. Every year New England Grows! gives me an opportunity to see what will be showing up in garden centers this spring, and new developments in conservation.
