The Green of Winter

Join a garden club, a society, a lecture that boosts your knowledge of what you love.

Looking through our gluttony of garden and design images, one popped out on this chilly morning of one of my many favorite plants. We’ve collected an enormous amount of Hosta varieties over the years and when I saw the above image, it jostled my frozen January memory. I recently received an email about an upcoming event and renewal of membership for the New England Hosta Society. Societies are great fun and can add to your plant knowledge so for any interested in the hosta world, here’s the excerpt of a winter garden event to learn more about this fascinating and versatile plant. 

“We have exciting events planned for 2015, including a picnic, garden tour, auction, plant sales and the upcoming January 31st  potluck lunch meeting featuring two speakers.  At this meeting, Carolyn Schnaffner will discuss troughs and containers with hosta, followed by Rick Goodenough speaking on the 10 best hosta. You can find a schedule of events on our website at
Learn how to use Hosta in a container as Bilowz Associates Inc. does in our overall landscape designs.
Winter is the perfect time to hone your skills. Immerse yourself in the knowledge, tips and latest and greatest material and ideas to enhance your outdoor space. And if you missed yesterday’s post, check out ‘A tree to make the top of your planting list.’ 

As Robert Kiyosaki points out, “If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the ‘right’ thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It’s like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip.” 

Plan ahead. During these winter months, start your trip of green. Do it before the spring and all that blossoms starts to pop. Join a garden club, a society, a lecture that boosts your knowledge of what you love. The garden party starts now.
