Gardener kept in dark about royal wedding flower displayTuesday, June 05, 2018
Looking ahead to Saturday, Mr Jones said: “I shall be watching the wedding along with half the rest of the country I would imagine. Looking out for my plants.” Dr Alice Laughton, conservation manager at the Royal Parks, explained the importance of the flowers being pollinator-friendly, and what that might mean. “The flowers that have been chosen are particularly pollinator-friendly flowers, which means they have a good store of nectar so they provide a lot of food for pollinators that are attracted to the flowers. “So on wedding day we might see some bees, some bumblebees, hoverflies, some butterflies, all important pollinators here in the UK,” she said.Flowers being inspected at the Royal Parks Nursery in Hyde Park, London (Victoria Jones/PA) The 36-year-old, from Bourn in Cambridgeshire, added: “We’re really excited. We work really hard to try and champion pollinators and support them because they’re in decline.” Dr Laughton is also excited for another reason – she is getting married this Saturday too. “I like to think that all the wedding buzz is about my wedding so it’s been quite fun,” she said. Talking about the flowers at her own wedding, she said: “My parents actually have grown all my flowers, so they’ve grown native pollinator-friendly flowers as well.”... http://www.irvinetimes.com/news/16230264.Gardener_kept_in_dark_about_royal_wedding_flower_display/

'Gardening with Jenny Rose Carey' set for April 7 at Kettle Creek - Pocono RecordTuesday, March 27, 2018
English Cotswold-style house with Carey.The house is set on 18 wooded acres with seven acres of gardens and greenhouses. Pennock’s in-laws gave it to Pennock and his wife, Alice, as a wedding gift. The rooms are somewhat quirky in their decoration exemplifying Pennock's eccentric personality. Rich details are abundant inside and outside. The rooms open onto garden rooms functioning as outdoor living spaces. There are 15 small gardens in all. I don't have a favorite, loving the formal statuary and the sense of enclosure created by walls, wrought iron fences and boxwood hedges in each area. Meadowbrook Farm has a beautiful legacy, and Carey is bringing it to life with her promotion of wildlife gardening and sustainable practices. It is a pivotal learning venue.Northview GardensCarey’s magnificent Victorian home and 4.5-acre garden are known to thousands of visitors. It was originally part of Wilmer and Anna Atkinson’s 1888 100-acre farm. Here, Carey has created a work of stunning originality with 31 distinct garden spaces: from the Blast from the Past Garden, Italian Garden, Dry Garden, Herb Garden and Victorian Stumpery, to the Fountain Garden — to name just a few.My favorite spot is Rose Cottage, Carey’s potting shed. As a fellow Brit, I know the importance of the garden shed, and this one is magnificent. It is functional — containing plant records, collected seeds, garden tools and catalogues, and the like — while acting as a cozy retreat. Carey is a hands-on gardener, believing that gardening feeds your soul and body. The goal of her work at Northview is to educate visitors about plants, planting techniques and garden design features. She succeeds in her vision magnificently. Her gardens have been featured on the TV series, "The Victory Garden," in the Wall Street Journal, and in numerous newspapers and magazines.'Glorious Shade'Carey’s latest book is called "Glorious Shade: Dazzling Plants, Design Ideas, and Proven Techniques for Your Shady Garden." The book is divided into sections, the first one stressing the importance of learning the shade patterns in your garden. Carey describes the various types of shade and the plants that benefit from each kind.There is a section about soil and roots. I so agree with Carey on the importance of adding organic matter to encourage root growth and promote healthy plants. Every year, I scatter compost on the surface around my plants — a great way to improve soil structure. Carey gives clear directions for making "fabulous, friable, or crumbly leaf mold." She explains the purpose of roots, reinforcing the importance of avoiding the application of high rates of fertilizer around trees in order to maintain a healthy relationship between microscopic fungi and roots.Carey gives very inspirational descriptions of several design styles in her section called "Designing in the Shadows: Bright Ideas for Shady Spaces." My personal favorite describes areas for children; I love the whimsical teapot water feature she adde... http://www.poconorecord.com/entertainmentlife/20180323/gardening-with-jenny-rose-carey-set-for-april-7-at-kettle-creek
A Wedding Under a Canopy of Flowers at a Museum in the Hamptons - Vogue.comTuesday, February 27, 2018
Bridesmaids were all in blue and white striped dresses by different designers (Gül Hürgel, MDS Stripes, Ulla Johnson, Lisa Marie Fernandez, Carven, and Alice + Olivia), while the bride’s sister and maid of honor was in a gold and white striped dress by Zimmermann.Before the service, the bride and her bridesmaids got ready in the “pink room” of the private residence that the couple had rented for the ceremony. Breanna was escorted by both parents as she walked down the aisle: “When we walked out, I felt a rush of emotions go through me, like, this is all really happening!” she remembers. “I felt like I was in a bubble, but I remember looking over at the ocean and also feeling really relaxed and blissful!”Afterwards, guests were transported to the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, where the Vali band played during dinner. Everyone sat at long tables under a canopy that looked as if it was dripping with flowers and greenery. “We worked with Van Wyck & Van Wyck, and they seamlessly put together our vision, creating blooming gardens running down the center that were the length of the tables,” says Breanna. “Every single flower, bud, and seed was real; it looked as though they had flourished right on site.” After dinner, the newlyweds got the party started with a first dance to the National’s “Slow Show,” and later in the evening, guests moved into a nightclub that Van Wyck had constructed for the after-party. There, go-to DJ Sam French took over the entertainment. “It was a fun surprise for guests to walk into,” says Breanna. When all the dancing was done, the new Mr. and Mrs. Khoury called it a night and went home happy, with a pizza in hand.
