Your Best Garden
Susan Cohen, The New York
Botanical Garden coordinator and private
landscape architect, gives her advice on
what you should be doing right now in
your garden.
HER ADVICE: Add color to your garden
where it counts: close up. Placing generous pots of flowers in a sitting area near
the house provides just as much visual
pleasure as a large, colorful border of
flowers in the distance.
