Let it Snow, Let It Snow Let It Snowberries

There is something special about how snow clings to plants creating a peaceful, calming effect in your yard or garden. Snowberries look wonderful in a winter landscape. This plant can be grown almost anywhere. You can enjoy it snow covered in colder regions or bring a bot of winter snow to warmer climates.

Large, white berries provide interest through fall into winter.

St. Paul, Minn. (Spring 2014) – Recreate the Milky Way in your garden with First Editions® Galaxy™ Snowberry. This new variety of snowberries features large, bright-white berry clusters that cover the shrub from fall through early winter.

The weight of the berries creates an arching effect with the plant stems, adding interest and texture to the late season garden. Galaxy is especially stunning after a snowfall.

A compact and easy-to-grow shrub, Galaxy needs full sun and can tolerate average soils.

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
