Embrace drought and plant a more beautiful garden - Sacramento BeeTuesday, March 27, 2018
Drought tolerant" doesn't mean dull. For California gardeners, saving water can be beautiful, not boring.The key is color – not paint, but plants and the neon-bright palette that flowers can add to a landscape, even with water restrictions."I believe flowers belong in our lives," said longtime California horticulturist and author Maureen Gilmer. "And right now, everybody needs a refresher on what 'drought-tolerant' really means."A syndicated columnist and author of 18 gardening books, Gilmer is on a crusade to return big flower color to our gardens without increasing water demand. Just released, her latest book is a handy guide for making the transition to a less-thirsty landscape: "The Colorful Dry Garden: Over 100 Flowers and Vibrant Plants for Drought, Desert and Dry Times" (Sasquatch Books, 214 pages, $22.95)."I'm hoping this book starts a little revolution in California," Gilmer said in a phone interview. "If you love flowers, grow them. They're good for humanity, good for nature. They may be the perfect panacea that we ... http://www.sacbee.com/entertainment/living/home-garden/article204769359.html
Shop Talk: Floral studio owner on how staying small helped business flourish - Anchorage Daily NewsTuesday, March 27, 2018
Alaska. At Bloomsbury Blooms' small shop downtown on Fourth Avenue one recent morning, Wildeve arranged foraged birch branches and spruce along with California roses, poppies and other flowers at a table in the back of the studio for a customer order. One goal at Bloomsbury is to use a foraged item — mostly from the shop's Sutton farm, called Bloomsbury Gardens at Eska Ridge — in all arrangements. The studio also focuses on locally made pottery for the vases. Wildeve talked to the Anchorage Daily News about her business.How did it go in the beginning with this business, with something you were unfamiliar with? I had no background in how you source flowers in Alaska, which is really complicated. I had to learn about shipping and what things ship well and what things don't. What things I could grow here, seasonality of flowers, what's available when, is a lot to learn.How do you source flowers in Alaska? It varies on the time of year. I always do a little bit of foraging, no matter if it's summer or not. And then in the winter I predominantly order from a company called Florabundance in California. … And then I also order through Cedars (Wholesale Floral Imports) which is just like a flower warehouse here. That's in the wintertime. And in the summertime, we have a flower farm and grow flowers, it's it Sutton. And then I buy from other flower farmers, too, and I do a lot of foraging in the summer.Tell me a bit about how the economy (recession) in Alaska is affecting you. We're pretty small. We're not like a fast, get 100 things out of here. … The thing that's...
