Gardening: How to create a garden getaway to feel like you’re on holiday

frank lampard

WHILE many of us may be staycationing this year, there are ways to create a holiday haven in our gardens using plants and decor that mimic a host of exotic destinations.

RHS Garden Wisley’s exotic garden, for example, houses not only tropical-looking pineapple plants, striking palms and giant banana trees which flourish in summer, but shows what will survive the winter.

RHS Wisley’s garden manager Emma Allen, who looks after the exotic garden, says: “When experimenting with tropical plants at home, remember the ‘right plant, right place’ rule. If you have a shady corner, make sure you plant shade tolerant options, and if you have sun trap areas, select plants that will flourish there.”

Allen’s top plants for a tropical sensation…

Trachycarpus fortunei – a really hardy palm (down to between –10 C and –15 C), this will give your garden the exotic look and feel without the need to

British photographer and set designer Cecil Beaton prided himself on being au courant, 

but when it came to his country place, Reddish House in Wiltshire, he was as Edwardian 

as anyone born in 1904 could be. So was the romantic, bamboo–paneled winter garden, created with decorator Felix Harbord, that Beaton added in 1955. “English Baroque proportions, a stone floor in 18th-century French style, Gothic windows that are very Strawberry Hill, and a central fountain that follows the Islamic concept of paradise,” Alexander Hoyle, cult London plantsman, observes of the winter garden, which was featured in AD’s fall 1969 issue. “The combination of elements firmly sets it in an Edwardian Revival idiom.” Given the roughly 20-foot-square footprint, “there was precious little space

Throw the perfect modern Victorian garden party – Lifestyle – providencejournal.com

frank lampard

As a longtime popular social event, Victorian garden parties were all the rage in England during the mid- to late 1800s and lasted well into the early 1900s in the United States. What began as a common gathering among the elite, held on the lavish lawns of mansions, transformed into more accessible outdoor entertaining. From small cottages and cabins to local parks, the garden party became an event for all to celebrate the splendor of nature, games, culinary creations and more.

Now, when many people are still cautious about gatherings, a small garden party — if guests wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines — can be a perfect scenario to both socialize and soak up the summer sun.

Traditional Victorian-era parties were as much about activity as they were about socializing. Games such as croquet, archery and lawn tennis were the order of the day.

Garden of Eden – Wikipedia

frank lampard

biblical “garden of God”

The Garden of Eden (Hebrew: גַּן־עֵדֶןgan-ʿḖḏen), also called Paradise, is the biblical “garden of God” described in the Book of Genesis and the Book of Ezekiel.[2][3] Genesis 13:10 refers to the “garden of God”,[4] and the “trees of the garden” are mentioned in Ezekiel 31.[5][5] The Book of Zechariah and the Book of Psalms also refer to trees and water, without explicitly mentioning Eden.[6]

The name derives from the Akkadian edinnu, from a Sumerian word edin meaning “plain” or “steppe”, closely related to an Aramaic root word meaning “fruitful, well-watered”.[3] Another interpretation associates the name with a Hebrew word for “pleasure”; thus the Douay-Rheims Bible in Genesis 2:8 has the wording
“And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure”, rather than “a garden in Eden”. The Hebrew term is translated “pleasure” in

How to Start a New Garden

frank lampard

You may have visions of drifts of color, wildflower prairies, or bushels of tomatoes, but get your feet wet first with some gardening basics. For flower gardens, choose a site close to the door or with a good view from a favorite window. Place your garden where you’ll see and enjoy it often. This will also motivate you to garden more.

The front lawn shown here is small, but the homeowners still found an attractive, sunny spot to add some color and curb appeal. No matter how busy they are, they can enjoy their garden every time they pull into their driveway or look out their front window.

Evaluate and Choose a Site

If you have your heart set on growing a specific plant, check to see what growing conditions it requires. Vegetables will need at least six hours of sun exposure a day. The same goes for most flowering
