Planting the Terrace Urns at Skylands

This week was the big move of tropical plants from my Bedford greenhouses to my home in Seal Harbor Maine.  The greenhouse at Skylands isn’t large enough to accommodate these big plants over the winter so they’re carefully loaded into a trailer and driven to Maine in the spring and back to Bedford in the autumn, a journey of about eight hours.  I have quite a collection of fabulous urns that adorn the Skylands terrace and this year, there was just a small group of us getting the plants into the pots.  It’s a job I thoroughly enjoy, despite the rain that was falling.
