On Thursday Afternoon, May 19th, OvS Principal Eric Groft stopped by Garden Treasure Nursery in Sagaponock and walked a demonstration garden that owner Holger Winenga has established. Known as “The Wilderness,” the garden is a treasure of rare and unusual plants, a true horticultural delight.

Holger descends from a long line of horticulturalists, nurserymen and hybridizers of plants in Germany and OvS considers him one of the most knowledgeable nurserymen on the east coast.

Enjoy!

Danieli Garden

The 24th Annual ARF Hampton Garden Tour, benefiting the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, was held on Saturday, June 19th. Eight gardens were featured, all in the Springs/Amagansett area of the Town of East Hampton, New York. One of these, the Anna Danieli Garden in the Springs, was the focus of “Hamptons Haven,” an article in the April 2010 issue of Garden Design magazine. Eric D. Groft of Oehme, van Sweden, was the Principal in charge of design of the Danieli garden. Eric, along with nurseryman Holger Winenga of Garden Treasure Nursery, led the tour of the Danieli garden and answered questions.

The day culminated with a cocktail party in the garden of Randy and Jan Slifka in East Hampton, also designed by Oehme, van Sweden & Associates. The Slifka property features a cutting garden filled with a collection of dahlias, a 40’ lily pool adjacent to the screened in porch, a pool for lap swimming, jacuzzi, foxglove border and peony collection.
