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.

When Botany Was for Ladies via JSTOR Daily

When Botany Was for Ladies via JSTOR Daily

In late nineteenth century America, botany was understood as implicitly feminine. Young women took to studying botany in a conjoining of interest, social acceptance, and readily available schooling and textbooks. The growing field welcomed a community of participants. Few of these women became professional botanists or earned higher degrees, but as teachers, collectors, observers, writers, and botanical organization members, they had a significant impact. They were, not least, a participatory audience in the culture of American botany, which might otherwise have been confined to the academy.

These Talented Artists Will Inspire You to Get a Botanical Tattoo – Sunset via Sunset Magazine

You want a tattoo and are thinking of taking inspiration from the garden? You’re not alone. When it comes to choosing a design, you can’t really go wrong with the classics. The red rose is a tattoo standby for a reason: the flower has long held connotations of love and beauty, yet it’s also armed with thorns. It’s pretty much the only vintage flower tattoo that burly men have historically worn without compromising their masculinity. But it’s not the only botanical tattoo out there.

How to Prune Garden Roses via Martha Stewart

It’s no secret that roses are falling back in fashion with home gardeners. In and out of vogue since the days of Cleopatra, these days we’re less crazed about the super tight, “Will-you-accept-this-rose” version of the flower and much more enamored with the garden variety—meaning old-school forms, such as those coming from the English floral breeder David Austin. Though roses have a reputation for being finicky and hard to care for, it’s easier than you’d think to grow your own. Feeding during their growing season and pruning during their dormant season one the basic rules to follow. Here’s everything you need to know to get the latter done.
