We usually figure on Mother’s Day for our last frost date at Linden Hill, and sure enough, it’s right on cue this year. We certainly didn’t expect to see snowflakes, though!

Linden Hill Highlights – Early April 2020

This spring certainly will be a memorable one, won’t it?

It’s summertime, and the living is…well, it’s just plain hot. It’s not much fun puttering around outside during the day, but the evening hours are a different story.

   “I’ve been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colors was black.” — Pierre-Auguste Renoir Ah, the colors of spring: dainty pink, baby blue, creamy yellow, and…black?

Like most gardeners, Linden Hill’s owner Jerry Fritz finds it tough to choose just one favorite plant. Narrow the category to perennials, though, and hybrid hellebores (Helleborus x hybridus) are always one of his top picks. Jerry’s been crazy about hellebores for decades, planting these cold-climate champions by the dozens, hundreds, and even thousands in […]

At Linden Hill Gardens, we think all our plants are pretty special. But did you know that we have a space set aside for the very best of the best: an area we call “Jerry’s Gems”? It’s in a graveled area to the far left of the Greeting Barn, over by millstone table near the […]
