Planting My Summer House Terrace

I love beautiful stone urns filled with tropical plants.

As many of you know, I have a rather sizable collection of tropical specimens at my Bedford, New York farm. During the winter, they are all stored in a special greenhouse. Once warm weather arrives, they are brought out for display - some go to my home in Maine, some go to my home in East Hampton, and the remaining plants are placed in various locations here at Cantitoe Corners. Recently, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, filled four handsome vessels with agaves and Helichrysum petiolare on the garden terrace behind my Summer House. They’re so easy to plant and maintain - they’ll look wonderful all season long.
