|FROM WILMA: Who/what sparked your interest in plants? Seeds started in a Dixie cup in kindergarten, Granma and her garden, planting our first gardens, greenhouses in spring, and botanical gardens are just a few ways some of us became interested in plants. My grandmother was definitely an influence in my love of plants!|
One of my earliest memories is that of gathering bouquets of daffodils and the sweet fragrance of hyacinths in her spring garden. She grew a bountiful veggie garden as well as beautiful flowers and often let me tag along with her. I’m hoping my grandchildren will have pleasant memories of the time they have spent with me in the garden.
Seeing what others are doing in their gardens can be inspiring. We are hosting some local garden tours this summer. Other garden tours are also being offered by Master Gardeners, etc. Seminars are in the works, too.
|Upcoming GARDEN TOURS|
Thru Reems Creek Nursery
|Reems Creek Nursery is hosting these upcoming evening Garden Tours, both in Weaverville. We are very grateful that Joel and Sue are willing to show us around their lovely gardens:|
Joel Cole’s Faer Hill Cottage Garden
Thursday, June 8 at 7 pm
Joel Cole - artist, gardener, beekeeper, and world traveler – started Faer Hill Cottage Garden in 1983 for his grandmother, Bessie Garrison. After his grandparents passed away, Joel bought the property and decided to return home from New York City to put down roots in his hometown of Weaverville. Joel’s painting studio is nestled in the garden, which includes a number of garden “rooms” such as the potager garden with his beehives, a Japanese garden, and a water garden. Joel is inspired by texture in the garden and he has planted many evergreens for winter interest.
Sue Vrooman’s Laughing Crow Gardens

Her one acre garden is bursting with over 700 varieties of ornamental plants arranged as a stroll along undulating paths through sun and shade, resting places and garden vistas, and Sue's garden is abuzz with warmly-welcomed wildlife.
