Woodland Garden
                            April and May
The woodland garden is home to a collection of shade-loving plants from around the world, including many North American natives and their Asian cousins. The shady garden is held together by bold-leaved  plants including Rodgersia, Astilboides, Deinanthe and Hosta. These are contrasted by many varieties of woodland ferns and the glossy-leaved European ginger, which has re-seeded far and wide.
The woodland is self-mulched by leaf drop from the oaks, maples and birches. However, we rake out the bulk of the oak leaves because they have a tendency to mat down and choke out delicate woodlanders and much-valued seedlings. As needed, we apply a sprinkling of shredded maple leaves along with organic fertilizer and lime. To offset the drying effect of tree root competition, in dry times, the woodland garden is soaked overnight by overhead sprinklers.
The woodland is at the height of bloom in May and June but it is a cool and inviting place to visit through the summer months.
