We’re visiting Lindsey Cline’s garden today.

My husband and I bought a log cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia about eight years ago. The property was a field of Japanese stiltgrass (Microstegium vimineum, a highly invasive annual weed), which we transformed into a cottage garden with many edible and pollinator plants. Along with owls, raccoons, and turtles, we’ve learned to garden with deer and groundhogs. Solomon’s seal (Polygonatum species), muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris Zones 5–11), boxwood (Buxus species and hybrids), and spicebush (Lindera benzoin, Zones 4–9) are some of my favorites and link the garden together.
