In the coming year, we are pleased to reintroduce you to 52 (one every week) of Jon Carloftis Fine Gardens’ BEST garden and lifestyle features in our favorite national and Kentucky magazines. There is no better time to start this series than in February when you are tired of the winter cold and longing for the announcement of Spring and the gardening season. We hope you enjoy reading these fantastic articles, as well share them with your family and friends.

Each week, look for three of Jon’s Proven Winners® Plant Favorites (annual, perennial, and shrub) perfect for your own garden.

Rustic Gazebos

We built this arbor from Kentucky-grown cedar trees (Juniperus virginiana) and it was the centerpiece of the last-ever New York Flower Show. After the show, it moved to it’s new home in Lexington, Kentucky and it is the focal point in this small back yard.
