Making a Garden in the Woods via FineGardening

Today we’re visiting Deborah McQuiston’s garden and sharing some photos she took in the beginning of October.

I live in northeastern Pennsylvania, in the Pocono Mountains, Zone 5b.

Our house was built in 2012, so I started with nothing: half an acre, nothing in the middle, surrounded by more than 200 deciduous trees. Challenges are the ever present deer, our short growing season in Zone 5, and gardening on a slope in the rear of the house.

It’s still a work in progress: hardscaping is done by landscaping professionals, but all 400+ perennials and shrubs have been planted by this 60-something!

Interesting Plant: Tacca chantrieri (Black Bat Flower)

Interesting Plant: Tacca chantrieri (Black Bat Flower)

Bat Flower or Cat Whiskers (Tacca Chantrieri) (49532732922).jpg
By geoff mckay from Palmerston North, New Zealand – Bat Flower or Cat Whiskers (Tacca Chantrieri), CC BY 2.0, Link

Discovered this via the article 13 unique and interesting plants to grow in your garden on the Greener Living Blog. There are quite a few plants I will highlight here in future posts. — Douglas

Tacca chantrieri is an unusual plant in that it has black flowers. These flowers are somewhat bat-shaped, are up to 12 inches across, and have long ‘whiskers’ that can grow up to 28 inches. There are ten species in the genus Tacca.[1] One of these, T. integrifolia, is commonly called the “white bat plant.” T. integrifolia is similar to T. chantrieri, but has white bracts which are veined purple. T. integrifolia is larger than T. chantrieri, reaching up to four feet in height (almost twice the size of T. chantrieri at a height of 24″-36″).[2]Wikipedia

On Emily Dickinson’s Gardening Life, With Marta Mcdowell Via A Way To Garden [Audio]

EMILY DICKINSON was a great poet, yes, but she was also an accomplished gardener and a devoted student of the natural world. An all new edition of a book on Emily as a gardener titled “Emily Dickinson’s Gardening Life” is just out, and from it, we get not just her history, but a slice of horticultural history, plus a charming palette of plants for a poet’s garden.

Author Marta McDowell (below), a gardener and landscape designer in contemporary New Jersey, has a particular passion for digging into noted authors and their gardens and has written books on Beatrix Potter, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and now a fully revised version of her popular one on Emily Dickinson.

@drrosannewelch took 2 slices of her favorite tomatoes and planted them in a container about a week ago. Today they are sprouting like crazy. We have been successful with this a few times now. A great garden quicky idea!
