Xeria e-Zine
December 01, 2021

My grandparents were all gardeners, on both sides of the family. Obviously, from this picture, also twig artisans who worked with natural materials. I came by it honestly!

This time of the year, I reflect on what happened, and what could be done better. The year past is done, but the next one is on the horizon. Do you have regrets? Or do you learn from your mistakes and hope to do better?

As a horticulturist, I grow plants that aren't meant to be in my climate, and try to figure out what makes them tick.

One of the most important things to remember is that the roots of a plant are less hardy than the upper growth of that plant. So protect the roots! Use mulch, make sure they have good drainage, especially in winter, and think about the soil conditions where you want to plant them.

I have accumulated lots of quotes about gardening and plants. Do you have any to add?
