Ambler Students Work on Flower Power - Temple UpdateTuesday, March 05, 2019
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is embracing “Flower Power” as the theme for this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show. The Horticulture students at Temple University Ambler have been preparing their exhibit for the annual Flower Show since the beginning of the fall semester under the supervision of Professor of Landscape Architecture Robert Kuper and Adjunct Assistant Professor Michael Lufurno. Their theme? A Hip Haven: Hangin’ Loose at a Home Refuge. Keeping true to the “Flower Power” theme and the 60’s era, the Horticulture students along with the help of their professors drew up a landscape where they would incorporate the two environments of “The Machine” and “The Haven.”With this, the students were able to come up with a very industrial side that centered around steel in comparison to the commune side which is centered around nature and reusable materials. In 2018, Temple’s exhibit “Within Reach: Unlocking the Legacy of our Hidden River” was recognized with a PHS Silver Medal; the Chicago Horticultural Society Flower Show Medal and the Chicago Horticultural Society Flower Show Medal, presented to an Educational exhibit showing outstandi... https://templeupdate.com/temple-students-work-toward-stunning-flower-show-display/
'Gardening with Jenny Rose Carey' set for April 7 at Kettle Creek - Pocono RecordTuesday, March 27, 2018
Southampton University and a master’s degree in education at Oxford. She taught science in England and America, obtaining a horticultural degree at Temple University Ambler. Carey worked for more than 10 years at Temple, as adjunct professor then as director of the Ambler Arboretum, where she was instrumental in the installation of three new gardens.Carey was involved with the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show for many years. She is the director of PHS Meadowbrook Farm, the society’s public garden and nursery in Abington Township. She lives with her husband, a Philadelphia native, at their beautiful Victorian property, Northview, where they have raised three daughters.Meadowbrook FarmWhen he died in 2003, J. Liddon Pennock, renowned florist and landscape artist, bequeathed Meadowbrook Farm to PHS. My favorite part of a visit to Meadowbrook (except for the retail nursery and gift shop, of course) is touring the beautiful 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 Victoria... http://www.poconorecord.com/entertainmentlife/20180323/gardening-with-jenny-rose-carey-set-for-april-7-at-kettle-creek
How to care for gifted Easter flowers - WTOPWednesday, March 31, 2021
Soon, it will be time to hit your local florist or grocery store to pick out flowers for your holiday celebration — whether you’re seeing someone in person, or simply dropping off well wishes.This year, florists have seen more curbside deliveries and loose flowers as gifts, opposed to traditional centerpiece orders for family dinner tables, but the desire for customary flowers like Easter lilies, tulips and hyacinths has not changed.“Potted Easter lilies and tulips are very popular this time of year,” said Missy Willson, owner of My Enchanted Florist in Sandy Spring, Maryland. “Stock flowers in lavenders, pinks and soft pastel shades are also popular. It’s a very fragrant flower and the colors are perfect for Easter.”Willson said if you end up with potted lilies, they like to be in bright light, but they need to be kept in a cool area.“The soil should be dry to the touch — because if you overwater them, you’ll kill the plant. Leaves will start to turn yellow and then they start to die.”Other popular flowers available for Easter include daffodils, hyacinth, grape hyacin... https://wtop.com/holidays/2021/03/how-to-care-for-gifted-easter-flowers/
