About JeremyJeremy Blaiklock, the owner of Seaflower Garden & Design, has been working in gardens almost all of his life, starting on his parent’s organic farm in Arrowsic, Maine. After moving to Pittsburgh PA in 1992, he naturally started working in the landscaping field. He soon advanced to crew foreman at a small organic landscaping company in Pittsburgh’s East End, a position he held for four years. In 1998 he left to start his own business and in 2002 he moved back to Arrowsic. When not gardening, he helps his lovely wife raise their two children (Sebastian, age 19, and Rowan, age 17) and works on several wooden boats.

If you need to bury a wire for lighting, pool controls, or a new thermostat wire to your shop, it’s a very good idea to put that wire in a conduit. Even though some wire is rated for direct burial, that will not protect it from a shovel. You (or your gardener) will thank me […]
It’s fall once again, and once again we are being treated to numerous editorials, posts, and rants about the stupidity and general evilness of leaf blowers. And really, they are stupid and spew a lot of greenhouse gasses and make a really annoying racket. But all those writers make no effort to understand why they […]

I just got back from a trip to Ireland, where the season is much more advanced. Now I get to see spring twice! Of course, being Ireland there were stone walls everywhere. This is one of the oldest examples, a collapsed beehive hut on the slopes of Mt Brandon: No trip is to […]
On this, the vernal equinox, spring is upon us, although you would never know it based on the weather and the amount of snow still piled up. I am sure everyone is spending at least a few moments thinking about their garden. After 20 years of being a professional gardener, I am […]
Some deer protection in Georgetown: I used 2.5 oz nonwoven frost blanket. It lets in light and water, but won’t heat up in the sun. Also, the deer can’t see through it, so hopefully they will move on to other places.
I donated some wreaths I decorated to The Chocolate Church. I used pine, golden false cypress, inkberry, juniper, sumac flowers, and winterberry, mostly wild harvested, or from my garden.
We’ve started the bluestone walkway. It is dry laid on a layer of sand, and will be bordered with granite pavers. It has a bit of a curve to it, meandering around the crabapple tree. Hopefully this will encourage visitors to linger a bit on the way to the door.
A client in The Highlands retirement community in Topsham is donating a gazebo and garden to her neighborhood in memory of her late husband, Ned. He was one of the most genuinely friendly people I have ever met, and a favorite of us at Seaflower. We are honored to work on this project. This garden […]
