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.
Here is the vegetable garden. I love the vine-covered structures that surround it.
Roses are best known for their flowers, of course, but many have very ornamental fruits—called rose hips—after the flowers have faded. These look to be the hips of Rosamoyesii (Zones 5–9), which has deep pink, five-petaled flowers in early summer that are followed by these lovely hips.
The physic garden is full of plants that have been used for medicinal purposes in the past.
Japanese maples (Acerpalmatum, Zones 5–9) are beginning to change color for the fall against the backdrop of a classic Pacific Northwest evergreen forest.
Hardy plumbago (Ceratostigmaplumbaginoides, Zones 5–8) is a ground cover that is slow to emerge in the spring and not very noticeable in the first half of the summer. In late summer and fall, however, it really shows off with abundant true-blue flowers that keep on going even as the foliage shifts to red and yellow for fall.
Carefully arranged perennials, shrubs, small trees, and taller trees produce layer upon later of beauty in this garden.
I think these brilliant fruits are those of mountain ash (Sorbus sp.). The color is absolutely fluorescent!

We’re back with Susan Warde in St. Paul, Minnesota! Yesterday we looked back at the year in her front garden, and today we’re taking the same tour through the seasons but in her back garden, where things are a bit shadier but no less beautiful.
Using manure in the garden can significantly enhance soil fertility and promote the healthy growth of your plants and veggies. Before learning when is the best time to put manure in your garden, let’s get a closer look at what is actually manure and what types you can find depending on your preferences. Below we also outline what flowers like and dislike manures and provide other useful tips, so keep on reading.
Today Susan Warde is letting us visit her St. Paul, Minnesota, garden. She was inspired by the posts from Cherry and me looking back at “the summer that was” in our gardens, and so she did the same in her garden! We’re going to see her front garden today and the back garden tomorrow. I hope you’ll share your “summer that was” in your garden as well! It is fun seeing how everyone’s plants have performed throughout the year.

There is no other spring flower filled with as much color and optimism as the tulip. However, in order to create a dazzling seasonal display in the garden, you must give some careful consideration to planting your bulbs.
This is Julie Prince (Julie’s Georgia Garden), with a few pictures from the late summer and fall garden. The pool garden was started in the summer of 2020. The front-drive garden was started in 2021. Both are still “works in progress”! Things are changing constantly as I try to give the garden more height and winter interest.
