The Cutting Garden at Hillwood

Continued from The Gardens of Hillwood.

The Cutting Garden is the work of Drew Asbury, horticulturist and volunteer manager at Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens.

The original purpose of the Cutting Garden was to provide flowers for arrangements inside the mansion for Post's enjoyment. Today, Asbury continues this tradition. The flowers begin in May and provide a constant supply for arrangements from June through October.

Below are some highlights from my visit to Hillwood during the Garden Bloggers Fling 2017:

Netting is set up horizontally along the garden rows to support plants as they grow vertically. Bamboo teepees support climbers as well.
