Winterberry Farm Primitives

This blog is now devoted to gardening with native plants with a focus on those species native to the east coast of the United States. With an MS in Agricultural Science from the University of Delaware and my love of native plants, I hope to help folks see the beauty and necessity of using native plants in your garden instead of exotic plants. Did you know that our native song birds and native insects are disappearing as our local environments continue to change?
For those who come to this page to see my 'Winterberry Farm Primitives' blog can now be found at where I will post new additions to my online antiques shop at and discuss various subjects about primitive antiques.

Whew! It's been a busy April!

Wow! I have been crazy busy with my Winterberry Farm Primitives business, my gardens and now my research! I have over 700 rhizomes coming in this week to get the last big experiment started in my research on the medicinal plant, Actaea racemosa! I am putting the final touches on the hydroponics system that is the main focus of the research and will be adding the rhizomes to the troughs in the next 10 days! Crazy! I must cut, weigh, soak in an anti-fungal solution, and then put the rhizomes in the troughs to start this last experiment! I have been lax in my postings for the last couple of weeks but as the plants begin to flower and things begin to pop - I will be posting more pics of the natives in my gardens!
