Planting the Terrace at Skylands

Skylands, my home in Seal Harbor, Maine, is a magnificent place and one of my favorite areas is the grand terrace with its fabulous views.  This commanding space deserves amazing plantings and every spring, one day is devoted to filling the many urns I have collected over the years.  You may recall from a recent blog, that many plants were taken to Maine by trailer, from my greenhouses in Bedford. Skylands also has a greenhouse where many other tender tropical specimens are protected throughout the long and frigid winter.  Planting the terrace is satisfying work and my Memorial Day guests were very happy to pitch in.
