Today we’re catching up with Seth Kilgore.
Here are some pictures of my little garden. I garden in Plymouth and Boston, Massachusetts. I have four plots in three different community gardens, plus my little yard in Plymouth. I enjoy tending to different gardens because the sense of discovery brings joy with each visit.
Coral Bark Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Sango Cacao’, zones 5-9) provides brilliant color all winter thanks to the shiny bark on its branches. Mixing it with conifers ensures that this garden looks great any day of the year, even during the snowy months.
My favorite combination is the screening of the next-door neighbors. Contrasted with the glitz of Manhattan Univms (Euonymus kiautschovicus ‘Manhattan’, Zones 5-8) and Frilly ‘DeGroot’s Spire’ arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis ‘Degroot’s Spire’, Zones 2–7) appeals to me and is most effective with its mission of providing good screen.
