News from the Gardens!
Hello fellow fans of horticulture and welcome to my new blog!

Each week I'll try to keep you abreast of the gardening happenings at Mohonk Mountain House and in my travels. I hope it's informative, entertaining, and keeps you "in the loop."In my premier edition, I want to make you aware of three things from the "git go"'
  • First, the 2010 show garden is featuring all blue plants. This is considered a horticultural feat and we hope you follow the progress this season. Check out this photo of Anchusa 'Blue Angel.' That should get your mouth watering.
  • Second, we're launching an exciting new promotion for garden lovers: The Mohonk Garden Pass. It allows garden enthusiasts to come to Mohonk for the day with special parking privileges, a map for a self guided tour and "gardener's only" discounts at the greenhouse that day and more. Click here for more details.
  • Third, it's Wisteria time here on the mountain and here are the pictures prove it. Thanks to the diligent pruning efforts over the last several years by yours truly and Grounds Supervisor Trevor Harvey (pictured), the vines are lovely (and fragrant too)!

  2. After going to Mohonk as a guest for 30+ years, our first act upon arrival, before checking in is to walk the gardens. We love to do the garden walk tours also when announced while staying there. And how can you not be inspired to take home a plant from their Greenhouse as an addition to your house. They are always healthy. Can't wait to follow the blog to learn more.......

  3. What a wonderful site! The Mohonk Gardens are a sight to see...perhaps by reading this blog I'll digest a wee bit of the secret knowledge the Gardenmeister uses to make the mountain top a horticultural oasis.
