Deb Henderson, Donna Mears, Julian Bland and Wendy Moses can be found throughout the Fearrington property constantly working to make Fearrington's gardens stunning. With an average tenure at Fearrington of about 15 years, this is one of the most experienced gardening teams around.
In Our Gardens
Actually, to a gardener in the South, that's a bit of a fantasy. With so many sunny and pleasant winter days outside, the garden never really does get "put to rest." Tools don't quite make it to storage in the tool shed well-oiled and cleaned, and the gardener herself only has a few indoor days by the fire to contemplate next year's seed catalogs.
For the many of us who would gladly exchange a long winter nap for the chance to smell flowers and feel warm sunshine on our backs in January,... Full Post >
If you have braved the recent cold and strolled the Gardens at Fearrington in the past weeks, you may have noticed some exciting changes taking place around The Garden Terrace! Because they adjoin one of our most favored event sites, the gardens surrounding the Terrace have been getting a fresh update from Fearrington gardener and arborist Ryan Cadwalader. Continuing our efforts to expand the use of native plants throughout our gardens, older, non-native shrubs, perennials, and ground covers... Full Post >
The Gardens are Fearrington are meticulously managed year-round to provide habitats for our feathery friends, a scenic background for our beautiful garden weddings, and for all who enjoy a stroll throughout the village. Our Gardening Team has been working hard over the past 12-15 months to incorporate as many native species as possible for our local wildlife - including our own birds and bees. Here a few of the different plant species we're working with throughout the Village Center and... Full Post >
Spring is feeling closer with the daily arrival of each new order of seeds! This week Fearrington gardener Donna Mears - who oversees the planning and planting of several cutting gardens used by Principal Floral Designer, Mary Stevens, and her team - began one of her favorite tasks: assembling the many varieties of cut-flower seeds which she will soon be sowing in our glasshouse.
While many of these will be the tried-and-true flowers Mary loves and relies on, florists and gardeners would not... Full Post >
While there may not be any snow - or even freezing temperatures - this holiday season, the gardens at Fearrington are lush with beautiful greenery and berried branches to inspire our Garden Team.
We've been growing and cutting many of our favorites for years, and thought we would share some of the best with you to add to your own cutting gardens.
Here in the Carolina Piedmont, we are fortunate to be able to grow many broadleaf evergreens, and there is nothing more iconic than bunches of... Full Post >
It's hardly a secret that we're passionate about preserving and expanding our bird habitats here in the gardens at Fearrington. Within the past few years we have added greatly to our collection of native plants to sustain our feathered residents, created wildflower meadows and even won coveted certification as a Bird Friendly Habitat from the New Hope Audubon Society! So it's no surprise that the gardeners' favorite holiday project is creating edible decorations for our bird tree in the Village... Full Post >
Not sure what to get the garden lover in your life? Having been the recipients of many thoughtful, generous, but not-so-useful gifts from family and friends who are not of the gardening persuasion, the Fearrington garden team devoted a rainy morning to compiling a list we hope will be helpful as the holidays approach. These are the things which would truly make us smile (were we to be gifted with one)!
At the top of our list, unsurprisingly, were a number of tools we have all coveted.

With the colder and shorter days of winter fast approaching, finding new ways to bring the garden indoors becomes one of our favorite tasks. While all the colorful flowers our gardens have enjoyed may be a fast-disappearing memory, there is still plenty of material and opportunity in the garden for seasonal decorating. Here in the Gardens at Fearrington, we like to use container plantings, filled with colorful evergreen shrubs, grasses, and hardy blooms to group by the entrances to shops and... Full Post >
In Our Gardens, Our Farm & Belted Barnyard
It's no secret that as gardeners at Fearrington we take great pride in keeping our numerous and beautiful gardens immaculate and always photo-ready. Yet even we have areas at the edges of our cultivated grounds where weeds and woods make a valiant effort to encroach on our space. In the past, as many do, we have fought back with machinery, chemicals (where appropriate) and hours of labor.
This summer we decided to try something greener, gentler, and much more picturesque! Blessed with a... Full Post >
With the worst of summer heat behind us and lovely fall planting weather ahead, now is the perfect time to consider planting native trees and shrubs for birds and other wildlife to enjoy!
As we've been finding here in the gardens at Fearrington, so many of our favorite natives offer not only sustenance for wildlife, but also add dazzling fall color and bright winter berries to the landscape. There are plants for every garden need available from local growers and nurseries too - ranging... Full Post >
