Plant a Meadow Garden

Take the natural approach when planning how to grow your next bunch of backyard blooms.
PHOTO COURTESY OF AMERICAN MEADOWS

If your idea of a cottage garden

Conjures up images of neatly planted rows of shrubs framed by tidy beds of symmetrical flowers, you may be missing out on the joys of a more organic approach to gardening called “meadow gardening.” The philosophy of meadow gardening is simple: Create a bit of what nature does on its own, and grow a wild mix of beautiful native plants, free to mix and mingle as they please. “Think of a meadow as a kind of garden that’s loose and informal and that doesn’t take a lot of time to maintain. It shouldn’t be a burden. Allow it to develop and mature on its own, year after year, while you learn from and enjoy the process as you go,” says Mike Lizotte, seed purveyor and founder of American Meadows seed catalog. In his new book, Mini Meadows: Grow a Little Patch of Colorful Flowers Anywhere Around Your Yard, Mike sets out to educate about and demystify the meadow-garden approach, encouraging new and veteran gardeners alike to embrace the joy and creativity of this garden style.
