“If you feel like work in the garden is coming to an end and that it will be a long wait until spring, remember that planning and design never go out of season. I had the good fortune recently to attend a seminar on design for small gardens at the ever-lovely Van Dusen botanical gardens, and my creative juices are flowing. The seminar was led by Reinier van de Poll, whom I have had the good fortune of seeing on several occasions.”
