IN 1970, MARK RUDKIN, a painter from Connecticut, purchased a house and four acres in Coignieres, France, a small market town 13 miles southwest of Paris. Although it is close to the French capital, the area still contains woodlands and meadows. The property Rudkin bought is primarily hillside with a stretch of flat ground at the bottom. At the lowest point there is a pond, stopping place for migrating ducks and home to frogs and small fish, which shelter under the large leaves of waterlilies. This small sheet of water has always reminded Rudkin of his childhood canoe trips, when he would go out at dawn to watch the white waterlilies open.

Though the hillside now offers views of neighboring farms and distant woods, when Rudkin arrived the land was a thicket of brambles and weeds engulfing some handsome oaks and chestnuts. For a number of years, he devoted his efforts to clearing brush and trees, pulling stumps, and opening views. Occasionally, he planted trees and shrubs without any overall plan. But a design was indeed forming in his imagination, and in 1978 he started making it a reality. Today the slope below the house is clothed with vegetation for spring interest, including superb camellias, magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas, and opulent dogwoods (Cornus florida), which flourish in the acidic soil and the climate of the Ile-de-France. In addition, an array of trees and shrubs provides luxuriant autumn foliage and fruits: parrotias, Japanese maples, cherries, crab apples. Climbing roses are trained into many of the shrubs, and the ground is thick with ferns, primroses, and countless spring-flowering bulbs. (more…)

Warmth softens veggies, so that you can damage them hugely by tugging them from the ground or cutting them off vines when it’s too hot outdoors. Cut all of them with something instead of tugging or twisting, or else you could damage the guarana plant itself.

Use climbers to pay for walls and fences. Many climbers can cover the wall or fence within one growing season. Climbers may also be educated to grow and cover an arbor, and they’ll grow through or around existing trees and bushes. Sometimes the plants will need being associated with supports, however, many climbers will attach themselves naturally. Probably the most reliable types are wisteria, clematis, jasmine, honeysuckle and climbing roses.

If limited space is keeping you from growing fruit trees, think again. With dwarf trees, you can turn your backyard or even your patio into a mini-orchard. Although dwarf trees are small, their fruit holds its own in both size and flavor when compared to fruit from standard trees. In addition to being space-savers, dwarf trees have many advantages over their larger relatives:

* They may bear fruit in the second or third year after being transplanted in the spring, unlike their standard relatives, which may take several more years to fruit.

* They are easier to reach for pruning and harvesting.

* They are an attractive element in a landscape design and fit nicely into a home garden.

* Because dwarfs require less space than standard types, you have room to plant varieties of the same fruit with staggered bloom times, which allows you to enjoy fresh fruit throughout the season.

As you consider which fruit tree to grow, note whether your selection is self-fruitful (self-pollinating) or will need more than one variety to set fruit.

HAVE A PLAN

Choose your location wisely. Dwarf fruit trees do best in a permanent location. Select a site that receives sunlight for most of the day. (When planted in shade or too close to a building, trees may not produce as much fruit.) They will do equally well in lawns or a tilled garden area.

KNOW YOUR ROOTS

Dwarf fruit trees are created by grafting the top of one cultivar to the rootstock of another variety of fruit. The rootstock restricts the growth of the grafted upper portion and determines the size of the tree.
Typically, dwarf fruit trees range from 8 to 12 feet tall. Semidwarf trees may reach a height of 12 to 15 feet. Genetic dwarf (or miniature) trees have been cultivated to be naturally smaller in size and may top out at 6 feet.

Ask at the nursery or garden center where you buy your tree about the characteristics of the rootstock, including hardiness, size, growth habit, soil requirements, disease resistance, and chill hours. (more…)

The secret of top chefs is a secret no more: the freshest ingredients, picked at the peak of perfection. The following vegetables grow well in a small plot or a collection of containers. Grow a garden of good health and eat well to be well!

Beans

Snap beans are one of the easiest vegetables to grow in the ground, and they do well in a 10-gallon container alone or with other plants. Sow seeds 1 inch deep and 6 inches apart after danger of frost has passed. Plant compact bush beans every 2 weeks to extend the harvest. Try French filet beans called haricots verts for a tender treat.

Pole beans bear in abundance, whether you choose long, stringless pods or wide, meaty, Italian types. Provide the support of a sturdy fence or tepee made from bamboo poles. Freeze, can, or pickle bumper crops.

Beans for drying, to be used in baked beans and soups, are essential ingredients of a cook’s garden. Plant them as you would snap beans but all at once. Pick fully mature pods when they turn brown and spread them on screens to dry. Then shell the pods and store the beans for winter. Look for tasty, heirloom beans such as ‘Cranberry’, ‘Jacob’s Cattle’, or ‘Black Turtle’. (more…)
