Midsummer Farm, 156 East Ridge Rd, Warwick, NY 10990

We designed this Pre-Sale for our gardener and farmer friends, who want to plant in stages. So, we'll have a nice variety of cold-hardy plants and seedlings for sale that are ready to go in the ground! (Or you can hold them for a bit too.) We'll also have some hardy perennials for sale and some awesome iris and other perennials!

The Brassicas are all the dark leafy greens: kales, collards, cabbages, bok choy, broccoli, raabs, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, mustards, etc. The Alliums are all the onion-flavored plants - leeks, chives, scallions, welsh onions, walking onions, bulbing onions, etc. We'll also have chards, escaroles, endives, radicchios, chicories, parsleys, thyme, oreganos, sages, cilantro, flowers like violas and violets, celeries, cresses, dill, lovage, mints, many of our hard to find European greens like erba stella, and lots of native plants. All of our plants and seedlings are certified organic, and grown and timed for optimal planting conditions.

MORE THAN JUST A FLOWER SHOW. The Philipstown Garden Club presents “As Time Goes By”, a Garden Club of America Flower Show. The Show will honor the Club’s Centennial celebration and will reflect styles and themes over the last one-hundred years. Join us for a fabulous display of Floral Designs, Horticulture presentations, Photography, and a special Conservation and Education Exhibit featuring Boscobel.

The Floral designs will be inspired by photographs of Philipstown architecture, old quilts, couture, Russel Wright’s Manitoga and the herb garden at Boscobel. You will see that a Flower Show is more than flowers. There will be several classes of Horticultural displays including herbs for cooking, healing and just plain pleasure. In addition, there will be volumes of cut specimens taken from Garden Club member gardens, including bulbs, perennials, roses, woody shrubs and flowering tree branches.

Children (10 years and under) are also welcome to enter the Show. There is a Floral Design entry (“Teacher’s Pet”) for which there will be a workshop on Thursday, May 29 where the children will create their own designs.

The finishing touch of the Show will be a Conservation and Education Exhibit with the Boscobel Herb Garden as a focal point. This Show reflects the dedicated work of the Philipstown Garden Club members over a period of nearly a year and a half. Please join us and be delighted by Nature’s beauty and bounty.

Contact Donna S. Doyle, Flower Show Chairperson, for more information (dedoyle1@optimum.net).

The Frederick W. Vanderbilt Garden Association will hold a "Vanderbilt Garden Tea" fundraiser, rain or shine under a tent in the Formal Gardens of the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site. Featured will be live music, selected Harney & Sons teas, and delectable refreshments including tea sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, and French macarons.

Guest speaker, Margaret Laffin, National Park Service Interpreter, will present “Mrs. Vanderbilt lied about her age and other things the Internet told me.” The event is in the spirit of the “Downton Abbey” era, and guests are invited to wear period clothing from the early 1900's, party garden wear, or even a fancy hat. It isn’t necessary but it may be fun! Volunteer guides will be on hand to give tours of the gardens.

Parking will be in the Visitor Center parking lot with a moderate walk to the gardens. Limited transportation will be available from the parking area to the gardens, and handicap parking is available by pre-arrangement.

Proceeds from this fundraiser are used for the continued maintenance and rehabilitation of the Vanderbilt Formal Gardens by the not-for-profit Frederick W. Vanderbilt Garden Association. 2014 marks the 30th Anniversary of this all-volunteer association. For additional information please email info@vanderbiltgarden.org or call 845-229-6432 or visit www.vanderbiltgarden.org.

Fee: $45 for the general public and $40 for Vanderbilt Garden Association members. Tickets must be purchased in advance at http://vanderbiltgardentea.brownpapertickets.com/ or by calling 1-800-838-3006.

Friday June 27th - Sunday June 29th. Join botanical artist, instructor, and author Wendy Hollender at her home and garden to study the techniques outlined in her book: Botanical Drawing in Color, A Basic Guide to Mastering Realistic Form and Naturalistic Color (Random House).

Create a finished work in colored pencil and watercolor pencil from the plants growing in the fields at the Hollengold Farm. Use a “Grisaille” technique for undertones in a neutral color and then layering color on top to create realistic plant portraits. This technique is very immediate and materials are simple, allowing the artist to work easily in multiple locations, and is especially useful for work in the field.

Fee: $300, farm fresh lunch included
Refund policy: A refund of $250.00 will be given up until May 25th, 2014. After that time, no refunds unless your spot can be filled at which point we will refund $250.00

The day will focus on which are the most important elements in a garden and yet too often taken for granted. Soil is amazing! It’s filled with water, air, and small creatures and, if healthy, will make a successful garden. This is an opportunity to learn the basics of soil science and the magic of composting. Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension will discuss worm composting and soil chemistry. There will be a tour by Glynwood’s David Llewellyn of the grounds, demonstrations on compost turning and techniques for farm-scale and home-scale composting. Note: At the conclusion of the program, information will be available on how to enjoy fresh food all summer by joining Glynwood’s CSA. Rain date June 29th.

The Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County are presenting a series of 3 Saturday workshops on making your garden a vibrant Hudson Valley oasis. The programs will be hosted at 3 different locations committed to the vitality of our unique ecosystem: May 3 at Lasdon Park in Katonah, June 28 at Glynwood Farm in Cold Spring, and October 25 at Hudson Highland Land Trust in Garrison.

Fee: $25 per person or $65 for all 3 events.
Space is limited and early registration is advised. The deadline for each program is one week prior to the event.

Volunteer interpreters will discuss the history of the gardens, with a focus on the Vanderbilt ownership and the mission of the Vanderbilt Garden Association to rehabilitate and maintain the plants, shrubs, trees, and statuary in the gardens as they were in the 1930’s just prior to Mr. Vanderbilt’s death. They will also provide information about two major projects the gardens are currently undergoing: the renovation of the “Cherry Walk” and the replanting of the rose garden terraces. Visitors can also visit the 1875 Toolhouse building to look at photographs of the gardens taken during the Vanderbilt era. The Toolhouse will also be open every Saturday and Sunday when the Garden Greeters have their information table at the entrance to the gardens.
 
Visitors should park in the Visitor Center parking lot, and walk down the gravel path from the Mansion to the gardens.

Carolyn Summers, landscape architect, author, and adjunct professor at Westchester Community College, will share the trick to a lovely garden that thrives with little or no care. By working with native plants that have developed in our ecosystems, they can adapt to our environment and survive in adverse conditions. Learn how to select the right native plants for your property and how to care for them so they flourish. In addition, Jen Stengle, Community Educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County will follow with a discussion on The Sustainable Backyard: Five Easy Practices by offering steps that have positive impacts on climate change, waste streams and native ecosystems. Note: Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the relaxing landscape at the Winter Hill location or perhaps hike to historic North Redoubt.

The Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County are presenting a series of 3 Saturday workshops on making your garden a vibrant Hudson Valley oasis. The programs will be hosted at 3 different locations committed to the vitality of our unique ecosystem: May 3 at Lasdon Park in Katonah, June 28 at Glynwood Farm in Cold Spring, and October 25 at Hudson Highland Land Trust in Garrison.
