The Daily Gardener

Today we celebrate a German landscape gardener who introduced English gardens to Germany. We'll also learn about an American painter and printmaker best known for her incredible painting Love Locked Out (1890)... but she was also a gardener and painted beautiful landscapes. We’ll also look back at a cautionary story about a botanist who protected his peach crop at a tremendous cost and using terrible judgment. We Grow That Garden Library™ with a book that will help you learn how to cook with all those garden veggies. If you’re running out of ideas - this book is perfect for you. And then we’ll wrap things up with a bit of glimpse into a magnificent garden property in Baden, Germany, back on this day in 1835.

He is regarded as the man who introduced English gardens to Germany, and his planting style is still prevalent in German landscapes today. One of Friedrich’s most significant commissions was at Nymphenburg Palace, where he transformed formal baroque gardens into English landscape gardens for King Max I. The transformation was a compelling blend of old and new, with some established gardens along the central axis left untouched. In 1816, he built the historic Geranium House (glasshouse) at Nymphenburg. Today the building houses a permanent exhibit featuring Friedrich’s work at the palace park. Friedrich recognized the importance of natural borders along woodlands, open space between trees and shrubs, and removing trees for the sake of the landscape. He valued certain trees - like oaks and lindens - over more common species like maple and ash.   September 13, 1844  Birth of Anna Massey Lea Merritt, American painter, and printmaker. Born in Philadelphia, she spent most of her life in England. She is best known for Love Locked Out (1890), which she painted to honor her husband, who died three months after their wedding. In addition to her portraiture and religious work, she painted landscapes. She wrote, The nastiest of all weeds is that sycophant - Dock - also called Herb Patience. When you grasp the strong-seeming stalk, it has no fiber, it melts away in a soft squash, leaving its root in the ground; even Nettles are pleasanter to touch.   September 13, 1916  On this day, the Hartford Courant (Connecticut) reported: Dr. Henry Hurd Rusby, a noted botanist and dean of the medical faculty of Columbia University, shot and wounded Alfred Fasano, aged 13, here today when Fasano and three other boys... were pilfering peaches from his orchard. A double-barreled shotgun was the weapon used. He told the police that he had been annoyed by boys stealing his fruit and… that he intended only to frighten the boys.   Unearthed Words He was the first to admit that he had been singularly ill-qualified for all his previous jobs. Just a few months earlier, he had accepted the editorship of Gardening Magazine.  “Nobody could know less about gardening than me,” he said.  But it didn't stop him dispensing advice for his readers.  “I would solemnly give them my views on whether it was better to plant globe artichokes in September or March.” Now, at last, he had fallen into a job for which he was extremely well qualified, one in which the only seeds to be planted were those of wholescale destruction. ― Giles Milton, Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler's Defeat   Grow That Garden Library Vegan 100 by Gaz Oakley This book came out in 2018, and the subtitle is Over 100 Incredible Recipes from Avant-Garde Vegan. In this book, Gaz celebrates the versatility and adventure you can find when you dedicate time to creating new dishes with vegetables. Gaz is a famous chef - thanks to Social Media and his fantastic channels on Instagramram and YouTube - where he shares many of his recipes with his avid fanbase. Personally, Gaz decided to change his diet and go vegan - and ever since, he’s found new ways to make exciting and tasty meals to make again and again. Gaz is known for creating innovative and straightforward food that helps people - even gardeners - see new possibilities for plant-based dishes. This book is 224 pages of vibrant vegetables in many full-page photographs that steal the show and define modern vegan cooking. You can get a copy of Vegan 100 by Gaz Oakley and support the show using the Amazon Link in today's Show Notes for around $8.   Today’s Botanic Spark Reviving the little botanic spark in your heart   September 13,  1835  On this day, British artist and writer James Forbes stopped at the castle in Baden during his horticultural tour through Germany, Belgium, and France. In his journal, he wrote of Baden: ...the tremendous precipices of rock, and plantations, render this spot the most picturesque… on my tour through Germany. [There is an] excellent promenade, called the English garden, with neatly kept walks and pieces of lawn, [and] a magnificent building called the "Conversation House," with numerous orange trees arranged in front of it. In the interior, I was much surprised to see in a very spacious room, splendidly furnished, [and] a large concourse of ladies and gentlemen, during Sunday, very busy at the gambling tables; in fact, the ladies appeared to be fully as expert gamblers as the gentlemen.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener. And remember: "For a happy, healthy life, garden every day."
