June is busting out all over!

No truer words can be spoken than at the Mohonk Mountain House. Feast your eyes on these beauties......Lupines, Peonies, Poppies and Roses.


Of particular note is the Papaver orientale "Great Red" which we raise from seed and Rosa "William Baffin"  which happens to be the hardiest, most reliable climber on the planet.



This week we also dug the "dahlia ditches". An "old school" technique of trenching the tubers, leaving them exposed to the sun, and burying them after the shoots emerge.

The Garden Pass is becoming quite popular and I'm happy about that. Have I forgotten anything?

  1. can't forget the blooming mountain laurel lining the trails in and around Mohonk. Found these on the way to/from Eagle Cliff.

  2. Visiting The Gardens Are The Number One Thing We Do After Arriving & Checking In. Good Way To Pass The Time Waiting For The Room To Be Ready.
