He's a midfielder for Neum Burg Berg number. Number ten is asked blow h it is a hockey team. It's a Swedish ice hockey playing in the third tier league hockey got a lot of sports and. Because everyone has their own. Alright. So the chances of something interesting coming up are remarkably slim, I'd say zero to ten right? And not even close. One thing work with. All right. So I think it's a good idea in theory. But in practice, we see it doesn't work. I'm glad we did a mini episode there to see now if I could now there are all sorts of different fan Wiki that are out there. Maybe there might be some some other Wiki that maybe, but I'm not someone else would have to say like, hey. This is what you guys should do. I'm not I'm not just married to that. Right. Right. Okay. Like, if there was a perfect strangers Weiqi like, I I don't know. Maybe there's maybe there's something out there. So this particular Wikipedia itself to vast and there's not enough there there. But maybe maybe there's an idea for somebody..
"timothy tillman" Discussed on A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
"Thing we're talking about like football jerseys or you hate read. So you made yourself you challenge yourself to make us read annuals and different themes or the Persian inspirations of the the sort of sun colors. You know, sometimes I think like I March around the garden center, and I've probably had this fort before on the show. So everybody can just say, oh, Margaret repeats yourself all the time. But since I go to the garden center, and I see one. Colorful, leafed plant like an califor- coleus. And I love it. It looks beautiful night in March around like looking for things to match it. And my theme comes from do not mean like a plant another plant does that mean. No completely one of our canal plantings, I think it was twenty sixteen was because land crafts nursery out on Long Island come out with a new morning. Lori was kind of doors. It didn't not to that door. But it would bloom all day long. And I just wanted to put that on try to go around that. So that became the plant, and then I had to find things to go. But there's nothing like seeing the plants in three dimensions in your hand. I have my list for next year already to go and the greenhouse over the next few months. But I have no idea how they're going to be lying in the bed until I see the plants, and there may I may start to see the plants and have to call ran crafts and say, oh my gosh. I'm gonna need this plant to make this combination or last minute because to see them catalog. It's really hard. If you haven't seen them grown in plants chains when they're next to each other. It's just like color does. So so you see different characteristics all the time. And I know I have never put a design on paper that made it as written into the garden bed. So, you know, a lot of people ascribed to the sort of like in a pot, for instance, in you have a lot of big pots in though sort of filler Spillers thriller. I forget what it's called spike, something something, you know, something that spills over the edge something that's at the middle level in something. That's the upright idea. Do you have any sort of d do you? When you go to do pots. Do you look for certain do you have centers some architectural items, the upper level items that you're crazy about that? You use shirt? I mean, definitely looking at that basic design principle is a great approach to it. And then once you know, the rules, you can start breaking the rules and fun with it that way. But for instance, just last year in our biggest pots, we put a big people. Tina grandiflora the glory flower, which has this bigger than your hands leaf very fuzzy. Silvery beautiful planet grows into this shrub. It grew to be five or six feet. It is a problem when he gets late wins the blow apart and with that. I put another one that you could consider thriller was on an a beautiful on pink charm, kind of dusky semi pink super prolific butyl on with with just a small green maple shape leaf. It is one of the flowery Naples and those two together the fine texture of the of utilize with really Baltics, the Cina and then under planted that with any variety of things, including some Spillers. So I don't always just myself to one of the so-called thrillers. And sometimes sometimes I skip the filler and just have a a really big plants own specimen. Sometimes I don't even put a ground cover on that just what that plant really showing its doing. So I think there's any number of approaches, and especially, you know, here here in the public garden, I have to think about. Being on display every day in the homes are garden. All you have to do is. Please yourself right? So right. You can really have that freedom to do that. I think one other plant you to hear about this one. And I just thought in the back of a nursery. Nobody touched it. And I'd never heard about it. I'd never read about it. I've never seen. It brilliant Tassio say it again, it's called brilliant Tassio. So brilliant and say I a. Is this called a giant salvia? It's not a savvy at all in the family, but it grew to be six to eight feet. Huge glossy lease these big panicles of big orchid like salvia, like purple flowers, and it was certainly a thriller and some of our pots down going down toward the river. So so I you know, we talked about the gum free now. And that was a real solid as I would say do were performer last year. Nice. I think you also had used some land Tana's and some fun Burji a-. I wanted to talk about a couple of those like, I don't know if they're on the list again this year or not but the Burgess especially which is kind of an annual vine. I think of it as yes completely vigorous and prolific and flower annual vine, it'll grow up almost anything and be really didn't little bloom from the moment you plan to all the way the first frost and just a really great vine. I have used it on tripods in our canal. In the past a bunch of years ago, and I've gone grown up. A lot iron fence where barely had anything to climb onto just a big square. Rod iron, and it made it all the way up there made this big wall of color, and in an ugly parking lot, which was a lot of fun. Then the most one I've had with his though is in the amphitheater at the north end of our garden entre, my Bilton, amphitheater, his wife Minnie who's a big patron of the arts. And he had these this big chrysanthemum show. We had these pots are is as big as a car big round in pots chrysanthemums, and he had cascading chrysanthemums coming down off the wall. And then there's a wall that leads down into our big reflecting pool that terminates the canal, and he would grow these cascading chrysanthemums over this wall when to try this emerging great, though, I got the buffs and the oranges and the reds and the whites and we just planted them all along with top of this wall. And it spilled down the fort. Eight hundred into the water curtain okay differently. And I wanna use it to the ground cover sometime. Just devour everything. I see that you have I say Scuola SEA V O L A. It looks like scabby old, but I also scholar, but I'm probably wrong. But who cares which I think the common name is fan flower because flowers are like the shape of a fan, and people may recognize this one in of course, we'll show pictures in the podcast a transcript of all these things. But. You you have it in some unusual colors colors. I don't I think it is sort of a lavender kind of color, but you have some different colors on your list. Yes. Are you see it in the what people call blues or the pimples and a range of those in few whites here, and there and. I've always known as ubiquitous hanging back the plan. Exactly. So if it's in the hanging baskets every retail nursery, and it looks really good. I've always been kind of trauma to buy it. And I've never really grown it and ambulance Douglas here. Jefferson Stewart, they'll make fun of me because I think it's been at least four years in a row, I've grown crop of it thinking, I wanna use it in the basket, and I just haven't ever gotten around to. I'm a bit scared of that ubiquitous ceiling, but we kinda other plants that look really good and we've given them away volunteers and such. But this year, we found the pink classic which is a new color to me as well. And another couple of passage which is a bit of cream and yellow with it. So that's sitting in with our color schemes this year, which we based on some person dancers dresses to perform for big fundraiser last year and. Dancers dresses. So that's where it's not football jerseys. It's Persian dancers dresses. Okay. I'm learning. Margaret redneck Missouri is leaving me here by. Year by year. Timothy Timothy commenting on his own heritage. So we just have a couple of minutes left other any other things that I mean, I saw you have been said in the mix what in the world Amazon missed said carrots. One. I haven't grown in a kind of like Saudi is. I haven't found says that I don't find interesting kit from the place for this is a nice little tough. It says it's not gonna get bigger than one foot. It has kind of Minty green foliage very airy thought it would be great Diller texture annual plant in. And if I if I end up not liking, it we have plenty of perennial beds where I can reuse it and that, but I'm kind of thinking it would be fun to do is using this one perennial as needing to be growing on. We'll use our annual desert the nursery and some when we go to Compostela and Xetra first frost. We'll just pop those out, and they'll be landscape size. I think so I think it could just be a really fun texture that I haven't seen in annual plantings often the lightning round as we finish up last minute or two couple of favorite cosmos, any cosmos that you want to shout out for us to cavalier get well, the one I use last year, and I couldn't get enough of it. And it was supposed to be our main plant, and if there's going to be one of our thriller plants in kind of got eaten up everything in the vet, but house most not a white is really didn't. It didn't follow up. It's a dwarf. So it doesn't need staking has really big flowers. It's really generous with its flour. And it made it through the summer heat. Really? Well, when a lot of other cosmos can start to to just Peter out a little bit. So that was really happy with that one. Okay. That's a good one. And is because you have this marigold heritage any that we should look at. I think you used lemon gem if you gone to lemon jam time and again. So I completely resist trying to have a signature plant. Yeah. Signature style. If you can predict what I'm doing and I can predict it becomes really boring. So, but since we have such successes with Americans, we always try to put some in. Jim lemon is coming in. It's a tiny yellow flower master, we use one of the signet draining. I mean, one of the signet marigolds has really Lacey fine foliage and tiny single yellow flowers is a little bit of to it. But just sort of filler plant. So it's always fun to use some of the plants that people see he's on a big scale, work them back into the borders for sure. Well, good advice. Thank you. Thank you. Timothy tillman.

"The. From awaited garden dot com and Robin Hood radio dot com. This is a way to garden with Margaret Roach, your weekly invitation to dig in and grow visit a public garden. I see gorgeous plants don't recognize and also once I do sort of but in some extra special variety haven't seen before. So how did the horticulturist behind such designs? Find all these goodies and know how to use them. So boldly I decided to invite a couple of them to the show to find out. But I this message underwriting support from timber press, your go to resource for books and gardening and nature. Whether you're new Gardner, a professional at the top of your field or reader interested in the wonders of the natural world their books are there to help you? Grow timber press dot com. Maybe you're looking for some fun new annuals for this year's garden. Fresh ideas for adding seasonal color so here to help his head gardener. Timothy Tillman of unter Myer gardens conservancy in Yonkers New York and Embiid restoration of historic landscape that he's been undertaking with his team since two thousand eleven and gaining lots of praise in the press and from visitors high Timothy. Speak with you. It's me again. No, it's always fun to hear from you. Eating more plant ideas again. We should probably just as an introduction for people. Who haven't come visit yet which they should this season. Just a little quick for one one on unter Meyer. No, it's amazing space left by Samuel unfor- Meyer who made his money lawyering precocious. He's a member of the bar before he was twenty. Went through corporate merger litigation and lawyering was rumored to be the first lawyer ever to win a million dollar fee from a single client. This is in the late eighteen hundreds and he came to Yonkers and teamed up with William vase worth who also did for the Rockefellers and set about designing what he required from his designer buzzword, the world's greatest garden world's grandest garden. No big deal. No big deal. So that's what he has his designer. So hopefully, I I never get charged with that sort of request. But so my garden here aggressively until nineteen forty and left it to the city of Yonkers upon his death, and the the places kinda gone through this very history. When I started in twenty eleven our our tagline was entre Meyer, America's greatest forgotten garden. I lived in Yonkers when you and I worked at Martha Stewart Living for my job was to go out and find great locations. I'd never heard of this place until Steve burns, our president was looking to restore this garden. So that's what we've been doing since twenty eleven Ultramar head sixty full time gardeners and sixty greenhouses and its prime. We've just worked our way up to four full-time staff with four seasonals hopefully this year. So we're getting close give or take fifty something something like that. Yeah. But it's great and. It's got a kind of Scott some beautiful architecture almost like not ruins. But like remnants not perfect. But but very beautiful, and it brings it that sense of the old and sort of other worldly in a way. So completely unique. The main garden is walled Indo Persian garden approaching maybe three acres, so it certainly the largest Persian Indo Persian garden in the Americas. It's not one of the only ones what's unique on that level. The view from that garden is out across the Hudson river jersey, palisade, there's this grand staircase. We called the LA with which we recently replanted with Mary a the leads down to a pair of ancient Roman columns, the frame the view of the river, just a really special place. There's a thirty foot man made naturalistic folly of a waterfall we were stored a few years ago when it started the garden that recently, we just finished construction on the old. Rock garden, which will be sort of a rocket stream gardens. We have water flowing again this the partners up with the temple of love. And so a huge planting to do there this year and another big planting field gatehouse, which is just a ruin we've stabilized the old ruin of the gatehouse. It's just got on the old neck with duct, which is a state park these days. So conservatives are lower entrance. So we want to split that with some cultivation and bring people off the app into the garden that way, so it's going to be a busy year, but entre my left here the bones of this garden are like nothing else is it's true honor to be here, quite honestly, dot dot dot. And they're lucky to have you, Timothy, but dot dot dot on. So you need a lot of plants, and that's what we're here to talk. So I was. Like I remember couple of years ago when we talked about what you were planting sort of your annual bedding schemes your annual color and so forth in I said, what do you do? How do you even look there's so many possibilities between the seed catalogs and the plant Cadillacs, and you said, well, I you come up with a theme, Margaret, and my theme is football jerseys. And I was like what is he talking about? But I think you were talking about like to color sort of like pick two main colors and go from there. But how do you think about picking a theme? Now, you know here we are two thousand nineteen sure I mean, that's a great basic idea. And I think color, especially for annuals, which should be bold in big and fun can come from anywhere. So football jerseys, your favorite neon beer, sign a diner sign anything like that. But here we are in a public garden. So we try to get bigger inspiration. When we can I in some I think you may remember in twenty fourteen we did nothing, but marigold. Yeah. Being an Indo Persian garden. We we borrowed from some of the Indian culture where miracles are such a celebrated flour and here in the state. We think a lot of times a lot of people think amerigos just a typical gas station plant. Yeah. So we went around, and and got his many, different colors and shapes and sizes we could and just at a monoculture of marigolds along the canals inside the Indo Persian wall. Which is a great pallet for annuals, by the way. It's it's we would still the garden is still surrounded by these big mix orders. And we have these great canals that we can offset with this annual color and change that every year we spring plenty of tulips, which is big color in the spring. Then we put the tool stop and go with these annual. So the Americans were were really great just this this bright, orange and red and yellow and white lines ribbons along the canals. And I think it turns them people's perspective of what America can be around. So that was a lot of fun. Last year. We had already decided we wanted to do cream and yellow clean goals. Tulips for planting. Some we started with our inspiration for last year's annual plantings with those two colors, and I really wanted to grow this particular Dumfries called cosmic flair. I think you know, what? Yeah. Gum Freenet cosmic flair. And when I came to visit you in the peak of like light summer, something like that. What is that thing? I mean, the screaming from across the way, right? It's amazing. So it's a fun lightly fully plant, but the foliage is a chartreuse yellow. And then the flowers are these little pump on these little balls cotton ball size. This particular one cosmic flare is a pink flower and has a tiny orange throat on it. So this yellow pink and orange and gossiping also comes in orange, and again here we are in this Indian themed garden, so we already have the yellow in the white really wanted to grow this pink and yellow gum free, orange gun-free as a good complement with its we ended up with just a pink yellow white and orange scene, which is again a traditional Indian color combination. Right. And so it started to make sense for what for my or leftist and to have fun with gun-free now. And I gotta tell you this gum free, especially the cosmic flare gun at the year before in my own garden, which has some baffled shade in it. And I haven't amended the bed, so it's very average soil, and it was still very generous plant. I had a lot of fun with it. And I knew I had to use it. Following year here for Mayer well in the full sun, and infertile soil thing just exploded it took off. It was it was almost more than I wanted to see. But I couldn't I couldn't even bring myself to thin it out at all of that big of a show. It's interesting. You shared with me were kind enough before we spoke today to share with me, you know, kind of some of your lists. And what you are ordering and what you're planning, and what's great for me to see is that I happen to have like a deficit of ability. With excel spreadsheets, but you don't and so what you've done is put last years and the year before you have him in an excel spreadsheet, and you have in the first combination the plant in the second column the description, and then the third column once the season happens, you have notes, and so you release say how the thing performed in what conditions did or didn't do in or if you had to care for it in a particular way. Or if it was a flop, and I think. That's a really great tip for people is that. I mean, you have a lot going on there, you need it for sure and you have multiple gardeners working with you. So you can refer back to it. Yeah. No, it's it's a huge help this whole process. Margaret, quite bewildering. And I don't think I'm very good at it. So. So I need to give myself all the help I can get and we do use limited sources for our annuals as well. And so to go through and make sure I don't do repeats of that. I already knew I didn't want or they sure that some real solid performance. Do make it back into the list, depending on what the team is. And because sometimes a pretty face. You know, there'll be something that looks gorgeous in the listings, and you know, we buy it, and it just isn't a real performer, you know, and we have to figure out why. So those notes are invaluable definitely the catalog reality. And again, depending on who writes the catalog. I mean, we we know some growers have these fabulous plant descriptions that can rival any reference book out there, and you can really get a good idea for the plant. But for instance, I ordered a salvia we didn't beds a few years ago that was a color team simply because I don't like using red. So so I challenge myself that we were going to do any was with red team. And we got a Saudia called is a cultivar new cultivar called Mojave read advertise for the super bloom, and it would go on and have the best color you've ever seen. And and in the biggest flowers eve ever seen. Have you ever seen a bad salvia, Margaret, bad salvia? Yeah. Aren't they pretty great? And they're very different. I mean, so I guess bad would be if it didn't suit your particular taste, but yeah, no, the super blooming new cultivar came up and bloomed for five minutes, and then started turning color and pathetic little plants, and it was just ridiculous. It was kind of going to be the backbone of one of the major plantings here. So so to take notes like that, and they have flops like that, you certainly learn. So we won't be getting any of those brand new salvia cultivars from that particular series. And I just looking at the notes to make sure I don't make mistakes because I do try to force some things around here. There's a lot of plant that we all are used to seeing in pots, we know a great performers in pots, we tried them in the ground some here that does really great and a really good surprises to use them differently is interesting and other years, they just sit there, and you realize I should've been in pots, and and so many things to the catalog description talks about what exposure and what conditions they need and it can. He really different once you get into your particular garden. I know the other thing brief descriptions from catalogs we were putting together last year yellow and white part of the pink and orange color theme. And I saw this Namibia, and I've never grown the MRI of before. I wasn't really exposed to. I saw this picture, and it's quick description. And I think what three hundred plants, and as we're going that Andrew scholar one of our gardeners. Why so many cool season? This is I'm like, what are you talking about cool season? And so we could get him out of the greenhouse. They were already all in bloom. We we stuck some into parts, but it was a it was a wasted amount of time growing those plants as a of crop because of my own ignorance, so so yeah, catalog versus reality is a big deal keeping out sue, you know, Timothy another thing
