Nasturtiums are one of my favorite flowers. They are easy to grow in California too, and tasty!
 
While the Orchid Show is still in full swing, we're already hard at work on our next exhibition, Monet's Garden--and we're getting really excited for it! Water lilies might be the most iconic of the plants that Monet cultivated at Giverny, but one of the most surprising to visitors is the profusion of nasturtiums that spill out into the walkway of the garden's Grand Allee. And lucky for us, colorful, zesty, edible nasturtiums are easy to grow in the New York-area. If you would like to try your hand at growing these beautiful flowers, Shop in the Garden has many varieties of seed and plants currently for sale. Stop by the next time you visit, and try your hand at gardening like Monet!

What is the best movie ever made about plant exploration? We vote for Charlie Kaufmans's "Adaptation" (an adaptation of Susan Orlean's book, "The Orchid Thief"). And since this year's Orchid Show has an element of the plant explorer to it (Patrick Blanc, the creator of the show, is a world-renowned botanist in his own right), we're screening this witty film for one day only, this Sunday, April 1. No joke!

Spring has sprung!
 
Signs of Spring

"Signs of Spring for the Northern Hemisphere (which began officially with the Vernal Equinox - March 20 - when the hours of day are approximately equal to the hours of night) like trees blossoming and flowers blooming, the shedding of winter coats and the desire of anyone - who has spent an all too long winter season indoors - to venture outside to soak up the sun."

Some fantastically colorful orchids!
 
Our 2012 Orchid Show has come to a close, but thanks to our photo intern Christina you can get up close to some of the colorful blooms from the show any time you like.

Maybe scientists can use this information to design flowers that bloom year-round.
