I garden in Yorkville, Illinois. I have about 20 different garden areas, including six 3-foot tall raised garden beds for my vegetables.
Huge flower heads of ornamental onions (Allium sp.) show off in the back, with salmon Osteospermum (Zones 9–11 or as an annual) and purple Scaevola (Zones 10–11 or as an annual) in front.
Hardy hibiscus, aka rose of Sharon (Hibiscussyriacus, Zone 5 – 9) is a dependable bloomer and is great for adding a punch of color to the midsummer garden.
A large-flowered clematis (Clematis hybrids, Zones 4–8) has been trained up the fence in the background, while a smaller blue clematis hybrid blooms in front. In the middle, an asparagus fern (Asparagusdensiiflorus, Zones 9–11 or as an annual or houseplant) gives great texture from its dense foliage.
It looks like purple flowers are the theme in this area.
Look at this gorgeous Siberian iris (Iris hybrid, Zones 3–8)! Siberian irises are durable, very-easy-to-grow plants that thrive in a wide range of conditions, and newer breeding has really given them ever more beautiful and dramatic flowers.
A Virginia ctenucha moth stops by to check out the sunny blooms of a Coreopsis.
Hot colors only here, with Mexican sunflower (Tithoniarotundifolia, annual) in the center covered with bright orange flowers. Mexican sunflower is a great long-blooming plant, and butterflies love the blooms.
Wow—a perfect, romantic, English-style rose. I bet this smells amazing in person!

Garden enthusiasts often seek organic solutions for pest management, particularly for combating slugs that damage their plants. A nature-friendly and delightful tactic is to encourage hedgehogs to take up residence in our gardens. These quaint, spiky mammals are known to feast on slugs and assist in sustaining the ecological equilibrium of our garden spaces. Yet, before taking steps to make your garden a sanctuary for hedgehogs, it is vital to consider some ethical and practical factors, especially regarding whether your garden is a closed-off area or is accessible.

We’re back with more from Susan Esche’s visit to the beautiful University of British Columbia Botanical Garden in Vancouver in early September. It is open to the public and has many different sections and types of gardens to explore.
Horse manure makes an extremely good soil improver for the garden. Often combined with stable bedding and allowed to rot down for a couple of years, horse manure is perfect for digging into planting holes or spreading onto the surface of bare soil. Fresh manure mustn’t be used directly on the garden as it can actually remove nutrients from the soil and scorch plants, but it can be added to compost heaps.
We often hear from Cherry Ong when she’s traveling to visit a marvelous public garden, but today she’s letting us in to see her home garden in Richmond, British Columbia. She says that she’s learned to love fall and is sharing the beauty of her shade garden with pictures she took in early October.
Fall is a great time for garden chores. This is the time to clean up before winter, protect vulnerable plants, and wind down the growing season. This isn’t the right time for all tasks, though. Know what to do with your garden in the fall and what not to do — for instance, what plants should not be cut back in the fall — to best prepare it for next year.
DANVILLE, ILLINOIS — An elementary school was razed to the ground In 2006. The school was 92 years old and named after Stephen Douglas who debated Lincoln in the adjacent city park in 1858. Many Vermilion County Master Gardeners are retired teachers who wanted to maintain the site as an educational venue. Partnering with the city of Danville and local organizations, these ambitious Master Gardener/teachers formed a committee and created a community garden. Now the old school is fondly commemorated in the garden with a permanent plaque.
