Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
In winter, the garden still bustles with activity both outdoors and in. One particularly imaginative task is the research and selection of seeds for our ever-changing plant display during the growing season. Great care is given to color schemes and periods of bloom so that the garden always looks sensational. We were delighted when the esteemed garden writer Margaret Roach invited our assistant head gardener, Drew Schuyler, to share his expertise about seed selection in a New York Times article, which also features several excellent photographs taken by our multitalented gardener John Jacono. Drew does a remarkable job finding unusual plants that make Untermyer Gardens so distinctive.
