It is Friday before Memorial Day weekend, and instead of packing the day with meetings, I treated myself to a field trip to Van Berkum Nursery in Southern New Hampshire. This nursery is specific to perennials and is noted for having a wide variety of plants to choose from. I took my notebook, a camera and lots of time exploring their inventory and looking for plants with great flowers, foliage and form that I can incorporate into the gardens I design.
It was lots of fun, and I discovered some great new plants. Here are some of my favorites. Maybe some of them are a perfect fit for your garden!
