Pot Bound in Garden Design Magazine

Just a brief note to let everyone know about an article that has just been published in the March 2009 issue of Garden Design magazine. This is a project that features ornamental grasses being used in containers that I worked on last summer with my friend Jenny Andrews, who is the features editor at the magazine. We spent several loooonng, hot days in August working to get it all just right and I'm very proud of the way it turned out. It should be hitting newsstands and mailboxes this week. You can also see a few additional photos online at www.gardendesign.com/grasses My only complaint is that in the online version you can't click on the photos and see larger images. I hope they'll fix that. Just FYI, the online photos, for the most part, are different than the ones in the magazine, so be sure to look at both!

More strange weather here! 74 degrees yesterday with tornadoes in one county and it's going to be 19 tonight! Sort of wishing I'd left those leaves in place for one more week, but what's a gardener to do?!? Spring will get here... Spring will get here... Spring will get here...

Wow those are some weather extremes.

Congrats on the publication. I'll have to check it out.

I just read it. The container plantings are magnificent. Yes it to see them up close would be nice but the descriptions are well written. That was a lot of planting. I will be buying the magazine. Again, congrats.

I was delighted to see that you were involved in that article. I had just posted on my blog yesterday about what an awesome display it was, particularly incorporating new ideas and contemporary containers into a traditional, aging garden

Thank you for the link to that interesting Garden Design article. You should be proud of the project. Excellent designs. I picked up some interesting ideas for both design and possible plants to use.

Interesting variegated corn.

Those are so beautiful! It must have been a ton of work. I'll keep my eye out for the magazine too.

Hello Troy

I've only recently got into grasses. Better late than never.

I think the grasses in pots look terrific.

I'm a subscriber and recall seeing the article last week. I didn't know you were connected to it. I'll go back and have another look.

I recall seeing that article when my issue came last week. I didn't know that you were involved with it. I'll go back and take another look.
