"Edgewood" is a private garden which has been evolving since the family's move from the UK to the US in 1995. It is home to several thousand hardy woodland, prairie and bulbous plants, trees and shrubs, grown in a variety of raised beds and natural settings. Following The Garden link above takes you to a general description of the garden and climate.
Sharing of nearly 10,000 digital images of the plants and garden at 'Edgewood' was the primary driver behind the development of this web site.
The Plant Images Album displays images of individual plants, categorized by botanical hierarchy. The Garden Images Album takes you to a collection of images showing more general views, captured during the various seasons since fall 2000. There is also an album which contains pictures of all the family cats which are vital to keeping away all those critters which would otherwise consume the plants. Please see the Lectures and Sales page should you wish to obtain any of the original images. The Articles link will lead you to more specific articles about the cultivation and propagation techniques used at "Edgewood".
