Maintaining My Pergola Garden

The gardens at my Bedford, New York farm continue to flourish.

This time of year can be very hectic - my gardeners and outdoor grounds crew are busy keeping up with all the rapid growth in the garden beds. Many days are spent weeding, pruning and maintaining the many plants and shrubs. This week, the crew tackled the back of my long and winding pergola. The other day, I shared photos of one side filled with hundreds of bright orange tiger lilies. On the other side, I grow Rose of Sharon, underplanted with catnip, Ajuga ‘Black Scallop’, and hundreds of spring-blooming bulbs - all bordered by a long row of boxwood.

Enjoy these photos.
