    The Garden Conservancy.....a conversation with

    in Hobbies

    Have you ever wondered what was behind that garden wall or enjoyed wandering through outstanding public gardens?  We are excited to have Laura Palmer from The Garden Conservancy as a guest on our broadcast as we enjoy an indepth conversation about all the facets of The Garden Conservancy.


    The Garden Conservancy was established in 1989 and has enjoyed continued interest and growth supporting the preservation and maintenance of gardens which started out primarily as private gardens and can now be enjoyed by the general public.  


    Open Days are also a key component of their wide array of programs which allows the general public to enjoy outstanding private gardens throughout the country for a very reasonable cost.  I had the pleasure of attending one of these Open Day gardens here in southeast Wisconsin a couple of years ago and my wife and I loved wandering through an absolutely exquisite garden just a stones throw from Lake Michigan


    I invite you listen live to the broadcast as we continue to share our passion for all things gardening.

    a Theory of Parenting -Central Park Conservatory Garden

    in Photography

    The Conservatory Garden is Central Park's six-acre formal garden.


    It is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French, and English. The Garden's main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets. 


    The Italianate center garden is composed of a large lawn surrounded by hedges and is bordered by two exquisite spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.


    A 12-foot high jet fountain plays on the western end of the lawn, backed by tiered hedges and stairs that lead up to a wisteria pergola.


    On the walkway under the pergola are medallions inscribed with the names of the original 13 states.


    spectacular seasonal displays of spring tulips,  all within an ellipse of Japanese holly.


    In the center is the charming Three Dancing Maidens fountain by German sculptor, Walter Schott.


    To the south is the very intimate English-style garden.


    There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays.


    A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden.


    At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden.


    The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool. 


    The Conservatory Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and offers a calm and colorful setting for a leisurely stroll, and intimate wedding, or an escape with a good book.


    For many years the garden was tended by volunteers from the Garden Club of America and in 1983 it was restored by the Central Park Conservancy.
