This week on We Dig Plants, Carmen DeVito and Alice Marcus Krieg are joined by Andrew Keys and Kerry Michaels, the team behind a brand new book called ”
Growing the Northeast Garden”.
You lust after lush year-round landscapes, but when it comes to garden design beyond summer, you’re at the mercy of our climate. Or are you? Andrew Keys and Kerry Michaels divulge how to grow all-year ornamental gardens specifically suited for the Northeast. Learn the region’s myriad climates, geography, soils, and other distinct influences—and how to work with them. Follow the specially compiled A-Z plant guide to find the Northeast’s best choices, and use stunningly photographed, site-specific design solutions for inspiration. This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.



“I love shooting [photos] when it’s cloudy and moody and rainy… I kind of go in a zone when I’m in a beautiful garden and just dance around it. One of the challenging things to do is get a sense of the overall space.” [11:00]

“The good thing about a winter like this — when we have winter with lots of snow, spring is beautiful – thing’s flourish.” [14:00]
