Sunday Clippings

Autumn does not mean the end of planting for the warm days and cool nights encourage roots to grow even as plants are entering dormancy. Rare plant fairs still happen to plug in our last minute edits before winter closes the door on planting opportunities, and the Great Dixter plant fair proves to be an irresistible lure for the Financial Times gardening correspondent Robin Lane Fox. Kitchen gardens still offer their bounty, and the tradition of kitchen gardens has ebbed in UK as Telegraph reveals. Indoors, art installations offer Matisse at MoMA and video art has a weird lure in the Regular by Joe Hamilton via Booooom. Floral and wood installations never lose their appeal – Rebecca Louise Law’s floral art in Japan is astonishing and Baker’s vine sculptures have a fantastical look in urban dwellings. Lastly on an ecological note, we waste too much food, the magnitude of which is revealed in a National Geographic article. ~ Eric
