Preparing the Plants for Skylands

For me, every Memorial Day weekend signals a significant change of seasons. It is traditionally the weekend I go to Maine, to my home called Skylands, to plant the outdoor urns, pots and planters. I take more than 100 tropical and exotic plants from my Bedford, New York farm to fill the many pots there for summer enjoyment.

This week, my outdoor grounds crew worked hard to prepare the plants heading north for the season. It’s a tedious task, but well worth the effort to see the Skylands terraces full of color and plant life once again. Enjoy the photos…
