Today on the GPOD we’ve got photos from Laurel Prothro, gardener at Arrington Vineyards in Nashville, Tennessee.
We just went through an exhausting reset of the hardscape, removing masses of dead laurels after the catastrophic freeze we had earlier in the year. We had to remove our main front and center deodar cedars (Cedrus deodara, Zones 7–8) at the entrance to the Lodge and Cellar Patio. OMG, what a big deal. It was so sad, but we will see now what we come up with.
Pots are lined out for a new planting in front of the saloon at the vineyard.
Those new shrubs are going to look great!
There is no parking by this beautiful hosta, but you can stop to admire it as you walk by!
In these views around the vineyard, smooth hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens, Zones 3–9) is blooming in so many places with masses of white flowers.
