November’s Garden Chores

2019-10-31T16:42:28-07:00

November 2019 By Scott Canning, Director of Horticulture and Special Projects I looked back at my November Garden Chores from last year, and I covered just about everything. This year, after a record-warm September, we flipped into an October of extremes, especially record-cold mornings. I should have taken my November chores to heart in late [...]

October’s Garden Chores

2019-10-01T11:12:57-07:00

October 2019 By Scott Canning, Director of Horticulture and Special Projects More certain than my grandmother’s admonition on the Fourth of July that “Summer is OVER!” is October’s chilly mornings, the disappearance of hummingbirds, the evening chorus of crickets replacing cicadas, and the Big Tesuque turning gold. Autumn is here. I love the fall for [...]

August’s Garden Chores

2019-08-01T12:33:48-07:00

August 2019 By Scott Canning, Director of Horticulture and Special Projects I looked back at my Garden Chores recommendations from a year ago, and felt inspired. Inspired because, except for the joy of some summer rains, this can be a challenging month for flower gardeners. And my advice a year ago was good advice for [...]

July’s Garden Chores

2019-06-28T14:33:46-07:00

July 2019 By Scott Canning, Director of Horticulture and Special Projects Ah, July! After living on the East Coast for many years, where July can be quite unbearably humid, I truly rejoice at our “monsoon season”.
