Enliven a shady nook
These easily grown plants will thrive in either bright shade, dappled light or the somewhat darker recesses of your garden. Enlivening just about any shady spot, a few of them unfurl variegated or golden foliage, while others showcase crisp white blooms. For an impressive presentation, try adding the bold textural leaves of Rheum, Astilboides and Dryopteris to a woodland setting. Helleborus ‘Red Lady’s richly colored flowers add an air of mystique and Viola ‘Rebecca’s blossoms waft a sweet perfume.Digging Dog's early March 2017 Newsletter Link

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.
Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!
Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
