After a long day of potting up tiny plants, a gardener waters them. The City of Yonkers’ Parks Department production greenhouse is being used to grow these plants for public parks in Yonkers including Untermyer Park and Gardens.
Since I’m not always available for immediate gardening help/asks, I’m compiling a list of users who know about gardening (whether generically or specifically in certain plants like aquatics/orchids/cacti/bromeliads) for those who may be seeking gardening help on tumblr.
We’re always happy to try to help with gardening questions. Untermyer Gardens is in Yonkers, NY (right outside of New York City) in plant hardiness zone 6b.
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s description,
“Ornamental spiral friezes have a long history in Minoan art. The version seen here with alternating up-and-down spirals and fan-shaped papyrus lotus blossoms became the favored ornate band frieze used to decorate most of the Mycenaean palaces.”
