“Plants That Pay Off” (pages 42-44): Learn more about these easy-care plant varieties that are hard-working, beautiful, and reliable in the garden. To make a big splash in the sunniest areas of our garden, we plant Cleome hassleriana White Queen. Clusters of large white blooms show off against the dark green leaves below and add sparkle to every other color in the garden. Given genetic modifications to keep this plant compact rather than tall and spindly, our favorites varieties of this plant come from Proven Winners.
“Plant Your Wagon” (pages 114-121): Give your garden a rustic charm by planting vintage wheelbarrows and wagons with eye-catching color. We loved working with Country Gardens to produce four of these combinations for our Bucks County, PA farmhouse.
