Did You Know?
Potatoes are American native plants of the nightshade family with their distinctive flowers in white, pink, red, blue or purple with bright yellow stamens. The potato was an important crop in Peru and Chile up to 10,000 years ago. After flowering small green fruits appear resembling little tomatoes. These are full of solanine, a toxic substance. The potato that we eat is actually part of their root system—and not toxic!

People may think that wintertime equals quiet time for me and the garden. This year in particular that couldn’t be further from the truth. We’re busy here planning our winter lectures, Madoo in Manhattan featuring British garden designer Jinny Blom, shoveling snow and starting to order seeds for early spring planting. Oh, yes…and we’ve started a top-to-bottom restoration of the summer house and studio.
