The redesigned Japanese Garden in Ashland’s Lithia Park is the long-awaited bridge between the respected Portland Japanese Garden and the famous Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

Landscape designers Toru Tanakaa former garden director of the Portland Japanese Gardentransformed less than an acre of the 100-acre Lithia Park into an immersive horticultural experience orchestrated to erase outside concerns and plant people in the present.

Tanaka took full advantage of historic trees that had grown in the footprint reserved in 1915 for a Japanese garden. He maximized forested and mountain views beyond the garden’s fence, and created tranquil, contained areas that borrow from adjacent scenery.

Amid new plantings, accessible pathways and landscape lighting are towering pine trees and shimmering maples that have anchored the space for generations.

Although Ashland’s Japanese garden is small, it is a distinct, enclosed universe that evokes strong responses. It’s impossible to

I don’t know what exactly happens when you turn 30, but suddenly you find yourself looking forward to a weekend trip to the garden center. But not just any old garden center: specifically Oakland Nursery.

This locally owned garden center has been the destination of thirty-somethings like me (and Columbusites of all ages) for over 80 years and for good reason. A stroll through Oakland kind of feels like strolling through a magical wonderland.

Oakland Nursery was founded in 1940 on Maize Pike where it operated for 10 years before moving to its current location on Oakland Park Ave. Since 1950, Oakland Nursery has been the go-to destination for spring flowers, summer ferns, fall mums, Christmas trees, and everything in between.

Today, there are actually four Oakland Garden Centers around the city that you can visit, but there’s something incredibly special about the original location.

President Biden looked lost in the woods during a tree-planting ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday when staffers needed to point him in the right direction.

The 79-year-old president and first lady Jill Biden had just planted a tree in honor of groundskeeper Dale Haney’s 50 years of working at the White House.

The president then walked off into the garden before turning around and ?“Where are we going?”

Staffers are heard off camera telling a baffled Biden how to get back inside the White House.

“What if I want to go that way?” the president appears to ask at one point, to which someone responds off camera, “You can go that way if you want.”

“You can do whatever you want,” another staffer assures the president.

“Yeah, I notice how much freedom I have,” Biden appears to joke as he joins his wife

Just like vegetable seeds, you can save flower seeds from your garden this year to plant the following.

Jessica Damiano writes about gardening for the Associated Press. She shares some tips for saving your flower seeds for next year.

If you want the same kind of flower or plant for next year’s garden, collect only the seeds from plants labeled as “heirloom” or “heritage.” These kinds of plants will grow just like their parent plant.

Hybrid seeds with a mixture of two different parents will produce new plants, but they will only look like one of the parents. Therefore, you are taking a risk with planting hybrid seeds.

Even if you expect plants to be the same as their parents, there are no guarantees. Wind or insects could bring pollen from one plant to another and accidentally create a hybrid. You can avoid this by planting

(CNN) — It wasn’t until he moved near to an airfield in the UK over a decade ago that mechanical engineer Ashok Aliseril Thamarakshan began to seriously consider learning to fly a plane.

He got his first taste of flying a few years later, when his wife Abhilasha bought him a 30-minute flight experience for his birthday.

Aliseril, who is based in English county Essex, booked in some flying lessons at a local airfield and flew to the Isle of Wight, an island off the south coast of England, during his first session.

“That was quite an eye opener into how it [flying] gives you the freedom to just go places if you have that ability, and access to an aircraft,” he tells CNN Travel. “So that really got me hooked.”

Aliseril got his private pilot’s license in 2019 and soon began hiring planes for short flights.
