Wise Words from Tony Avent

Noted plantsman & owner of Plant delights Nursery in Raleigh, Tony Avent, is quoted in recent GARDEN DESIGN magazine as follows:

"Our advice is to "install small." Otherwise, there's no connection between gardener and landscape. Same with kids -- you don't go out and acquire 25-year-olds to start with. It's all about biodiversity, multi-season interest and gardens with emotion."

My friends, Mark Golbach & Linda Brazill (read about them on my website in my journal) expertly practice such concepts. Here they stand last summer in one of my client's gardens.
