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
Most of us are familiar with the blooms of cherries and magnolias, but a walk through the gardens at this time of year leads to the discovery of lesser-known spring-blooming shrubs. Here, Wintergreen Barberry (Berberis julianae), with oh-so-fragrant yellow flowers covering it's prickly branches. Featured above, this shrub is found along the walkway to The Fearrington House Restaurant.

In Our Gardens, In Our Spa
One of the sweetest smaller garden beds at Fearrington these days as each new day brings new flower and foliage is the one in front of the Spa entrance. What's behind Deb Henderson's complementary design inspiration? "The crape myrtles overhead are lavender so I use colors that complement them,like pinks, violet and blues. The trees make it very shady so I use foliage plants that add texture: hostas, ferns and hellebores. Bulbs of different varieties add color in the spring. In the summer... Full Post >

Sunny days and warming temperatures have brought forth the first of many tulips here in our gardens. Always early, and repeating year after year, are the so-called "species tulips," many of these varieties date back to antiquity.

So happy to see the purple, cabbage-like foliage of the emerging Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica) popping up here and there throughout the Village! These, shown, are in Jenny's Garden, and more can be seen in front of The Fearrington House Restaurant. Now we KNOW spring is here! Full Post >
The Fearrington gardeners were excited to go on their first spring plant-buying trip to our favorite source, the Big Bloomers Plant Farm in Sanford! We returned with lots of new lovelies -- rosemaries, columbines, scented geraniums and more! Can't wait to try them out in the gardens this spring! We'll keep you posted on which ones become our new favorites... Full Post >

Spring's earliest and bravest faces are the early bulbs. Now popping up throughout the gardens despite the cold, are hardy bulbs such as species crocus (seen above). If you're in search of more color, the Winter Aconite, in front of McIntyre's, the Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) along the Restaurant pathway, and the diminutive Iris Reticulata, in front of The Fearrington House Restaurant are your best bets!

Just a reminder that in the midst of a cold February, Springtime at Fearrington is not far away. Only a little more than a month to go, and our gardens will be filled to bursting with color. Hang in there! Full Post >
The promise of Spring is apparent on a walk through our gardens and Camden Park this beautiful sunny afternoon. The first buds of the flowering apricot (Prunus mume) are unfurling against a Carolina blue sky (pictured to the right) and the fuzzy fat buds of Star Magnolia (Magnolia stellata) are ready to open soon (pictured above)!
