Gardening in the Northeast

Stunning autumn tree colors, spectacular bursts of summertime blooms even on the hottest days, tiny spring bulbs that delight, and deeply cold days in wintertime: Those are the rewards and challenges of gardeners in the Northeast. There are plants adapted to those conditions, and you can make preparations to ensure your garden grows its best. Start with natives. Easy-growing and low-maintenance, these 15 natives are sure to shine. Edibles are an unusual way to add color to a garden; here are a few that work well throughout the growing season. If you're looking to add perennials or roses to your garden, try these no-fail varieties that are beloved and can withstand all that Mother Nature throws at them. For garden inspiration, take a peek into other gardeners' spaces; we have several Northeast landscapes that will get you motivated to create your own garden rooms filled with flowers, trees, and more.
