Ranunculus asiaticus


Spring Gardening on Nantucket

by Hilary Newell

“My Nantucket garden”... doesn’t that have a nice ring to it? There is something pretty special about our gardens here: the way the light plays off seed heads, the iconic hydrangea blooms as blue as a summer sky, rose-covered cottages, the sweet Photo: Hillary Newell scent of lilies on a hot summer day, the eye-catching window boxes and pocket gardens. All beautiful for sure! But behind all those blooms and beauty, there is some work involved. A labor of love, if you will. The island landscape is, for at least five months a year, very flowery. Gardens brim with blooms and window boxes and containers seem to be in competition for a blue ribbon.

Spring is the perfect time to lay the foundation for summer splendor, and while we are waiting for the best weather to arrive, there are plenty of things to do. April and May are perfect for seed starting, either in a bright window or directly in the garden. If you’re a vegetable gardener, you can start seeding some things like radishes, spinach, lettuce, carrots, and peas when the soil temperatures hit the low to mid 50’s. If you are itching to start flower seeds at this point, it’s best to start them inside. Check the seed packet to see what the temperature requirement is; in general, flowers require a warmer germination temperature, more like 65 to 70F. If you are seeding directly outside, it’s best to wait until several weeks after the last spring frost, when the ground has warmed sufficiently. If you rush to get your seeds in the ground, they will germinate very slowly. Window boxes are planted for at least three seasons on Nantucket. Many homeowners begin by dressing up the street side of their homes in time for Daffodil weekend (this year April 28-29.) Weather

fluctuations present a challenge, but there are some great choices of flowers that will withstand what Mother Nature throws at them and continue to bloom until it’s time for summer annuals. Bright colors are most welcome at this time of year, and lots of spring bulbs will provide just that! Daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths can often be found in garden centers in spring. They are planted in the fall and left in a temperature-controlled environment until it’s time to bring them out, and when they come out, the sun spurs them to begin photosynthesis and they green up and bloom. But is it safe to plant these in window boxes before the last frost? Yes, it is! Daffodils will last a very long time in cool spring temperatures, as will other spring bulbs. Primroses are another harbinger of spring, and they are great in early season window boxes and containers. Fans of cool weather, primroses come in several varieties. Primroses reveal themselves unexpectedly as I stroll through town in early spring. They are one of the first perennials to pop up and the colorful surprise always makes me stop to appreciate these intrepid little groundbreakers. Almost like finding a forgotten Easter egg. Bright hues stand out against deep green foliage and the best part is that in addition to window boxes or in-ground perennials, primroses can be enjoyed as houseplants too. Two or three of them planted in a clay pot or decorative planter make a really nice hostess gift that will last a whole lot longer than a bunch of cut flowers. Though I would never discourage either of those choices! Another of the spring greats is ranunculus. It is my favorite flower to photograph, and it draws comments from everyone who has never seen one before. The ranunculus you find in garden centers is closely related to the buttercup, probably named as such because of its delicate buttery color. But unlike its native cousin, the flowers of Ranunculus asiaticus are stuffed with more petals than you can imagine. After taking a picture, I just want to run my fingers over the full blossoms to ruffle the vivid blooms. As perennials in Zone 8 and above, they are some of the best cool weather annuals we can use here. If the weather is dry and mild (hey, I can wish, right?) these springtime Photo: Louise Martling

Water, Water, Everywhere. . . B

eing surrounded by water, it’s difficult to imagine a day when the cliche might come true. Sure, there’s water everywhere, but clearly there is also plenty to drink. Or is there? According to the United States Geological Survey, a watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet such as the outflow of a reservoir, mouth of a bay, or any point along a stream channel. These areas supply water for farming, construction, recreation, and more. Most importantly for humans, though, these areas provide drinking water. This water, consisting of rainfall but also of the runoff from lawns, streets, sewage, makes its way through the sandy soil, beaches, bogs, and ponds and settles into the down gradient waterbody, such as an estuary or a harbor. From there it can also flow up to the ponds and wetlands. This means that for better or worse, all of the water on Nantucket is connected. Part of our watershed, shaped much like a bowl, was carved out 10,000 years ago by glaciers. The massive moving walls of ice created this indent hundreds of feet below the island in the dense clay underneath the sandy soil, which, lucky for us, makes an excellent filter for the “lens” of water that sits on top. This water is replenished mostly by rainfall, which can often bring with it the runoff from lawns, streets, and sewage. It then makes its way through the sandy soil, beaches, bogs, and ponds and settles into the down gradient waterbody, such as an estuary or a harbor, most of which act as excellent natural filters. From there it can also flow up to the ponds and wetlands. Though water may seem plentiful on the surface, the substance essential to all life on earth is quickly becoming one of the most scarce resources on the planet. There is even talk of coming wars being waged over fresh water. While climate change and overpopulation in many areas are the culprits, on Nantucket, the causes are much more avoidable. Septic systems, boating, and lawn fertilizers are just some of the threats to the watershed of our tiny island. Because of this, landowners and visitors to Nantucket need to be especially aware of these things in order to control the pollution and contaminants entering the ground water.

or Is There? By Carl Oscar Olson

Nantucket, though small in size, is home to many unique ecosystems and habitats. Ponds, bogs, grasslands, and hardwood forests all hold and drain water differently, so naturally, the island also has multiple watersheds. There are nine to be exact, and each is fed and drained in unique ways, and vulnerable to an array of unique contaminants. Keeping an eye on all of this would be a daunting task if not for organizations like the Nantucket Land Council. Conceived in 1974 by a small group of concerned citizens, the NLC set out to protect the pristine and picturesque perfection of Nantucket Island. Their mission hasn’t changed: defend the natural resources and rare species and irreplaceable habitats of the island. Much of the island’s watersheds surround the freshwater ponds. Much of this land is protected and thus free from human harm. However some of the ponds, such as the Miacomet pond watershed, are heavily affected by people. The pond itself is 37 acres of fresh water, but the watershed contained underneath sprawls over 1,000 acres. Residential and commercial use, a golf course, and public water recharge can all wreak havoc on this precious source of fresh water. Not to mention swimming and heavy recreational use during the summer months. Naturally, a large portion of rainwater drains into the ocean that surrounds us. The Nantucket Harbor watershed takes up the island’s northeast quadrant. This area is heavily developed and gets hit with public sewer and public water and is also a prime spot for swimming, fishing, mooring boats and all of the services that boats require. That means fuel, sewage, and the other waste that follows. Storm drain runoff also discharges into the harbor, bringing with it chemicals, sediment, and trash. The other ocean watershed are vulnerable to the same threats in addition to runoff from the airport, wastewater treatment facilities, and other sewer Continued on page 16

Spring Gardening on Nantucket - Continued from page 11 treasures can bloom for 6 weeks. Realistically, you can probably count on at least a month of looking good in a window box. More if it is protected from wind. Hybridized osteospermums were the new kids on the block about 10 years ago, with breeders promising Photo: Hillary Newell long bloom times for the colorful daisy flowers. And while the new hybrids sported fancy flower types, I never saw the long bloom time promise come true. However, their performance in spring was greatly improved. Known by the common name of Cape Daisies or African Daisies, these powerhouse annuals put on a great show while the weather is cool. Vibrant blooms with varying shades of pink, yellow, orange, white, and purple all have the classic daisy shape, the doubles having tufted centers, while others have miniature spoon-like tips at the end of each petal. Count on a lot of blooms until the weather warms up. Most of the varieties available now will continue to bloom sporadically through the summer, and then put on another flush of bloom when the days get cooler in the fall. This is an advantage if you are planting them in the ground. As spring turns to summer, you will probably want

to replant your window boxes with annuals that will look great in the heat. Gardening in the ground in spring can be a bit dicey. Window boxes and containers may be able to be moved inside if the weather threatens, but once something is planted in the ground, it is there to stay. If the gardening bug gets under your skin and you just have to get out in the garden in April, there are some things you can do to prepare for the upcoming season. Spread a half inch of compost on your vegetable or annual garden. Fix that fence. Put down some gravel where you don’t want to weed any more. Edge your beds. Clean up your perennial beds. Remove broken or dead branches from trees and shrubs. Contact UMass extension service (ag.umass.edu) to get a soil test done, and put down fertilizer after April 15. If you use a landscaping or gardening service, insist that they follow the regulations outlined in Best Management Practices for Landscape Fertilizer Use on Nantucket Island. Landscape professionals must have an applicator’s license issued by Nantucket’s Board of Health. Ask to see it. Because Nantucket’s unique ecosystem provides a great foundation for three seasons of growing plants outdoors, you can have months and months of your own unique combination of plants around your home. © 2018 Hilary Newell

Water, Water . . . - Continued from page 12 beds. Some good news, though, is that we have some friends in the water to help with the cleanup. Oysters. Nantucket loves oysters. The iconic bivalves are not only a tasty treat, but they also provide food and habitat for other animals. They’re relatively easy to farm, but most importantly they help to improve the quality in our surrounding waters. Oysters eat by pumping water through their gills and, in doing so, they not only trap particles of food and nutrients, but also sediment, chemicals, and contaminants. A single oyster can filter more than fifty gallons of water in a single day. However, the oysters are just one species of many aquatic animals being hurt by damage to the watershed. One of the biggest risks to our watershed and the ocean in general comes from fertilizers. Nantucket is a paradise in summer, and a hallmark of the season are the lush, green lawns that liven up the land. But they don’t come without a cost. Fertilizers like nitrogen and phosphorous occur naturally in all living things, but in high concentrations they can cause excess algae growth. Other influences like sewage and recreational boating can add to the problem, and these algae “blooms” can be harmful to humans and wildlife as they contaminate and deplete oxygen from the water.

“When the oxygen supply starts to get low, the oysters are going to die.”

Steve Bender, long-time Nantucket resident and owner of Pocomo Meadow Oysters, knows the problem all too well. “The oysters are doing well, but there’s a point of no return,” says Bender. “They need oxygen too. When the oxygen supply starts to get low, the oysters are going to die.”

landscaper, make sure they are following Nantucket’s Best Management Practices for fertilizer application; many here do. These guidelines are available for all to view at nantucketlandcouncil.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/fertilizer-bestpractices.pdf. Another friend to the watershed on Nantucket is the Nantucket Watershed Project. Founder Morgan Raith, lifelong resident of the island, had the idea two years ago while attending college. Her goal was to create a collective voice that represents the needs and current state of the Nantucket watershed. She spent a decade in the landscaping business on the island, and has countless hours under her belt in the harbor as an avid kiteboarder. “There used to be starfish on the jetties,” she says, “there used to be urchins. They’re gone.” Currently, she is a part-time teacher and landscape designer. Her unique perspective puts her on the threshold between understanding the needs of her industry and being a steward of the precious environments that surround us. There are a large number of other things we can do to preserve the watersheds on Nantucket. On your average summer day, upwards of 50% of Nantucket’s water usage goes toward watering lawns and gardens. Don’t cut your grass too short, and be sure to water in the early morning hours. Other small changes like shorter showers, walking or biking instead of driving, and even cleaning up after your dog can have a big positive impact. Using wood, bricks, or stones in place of pavement can reduce runoff, and residents should always properly dispose of hazardous waste and harmful chemicals. “This is not a blame game,” says Morgan. “We can’t point a finger at landscaping or boating, or global warming. We all need to look in the mirror and make some changes.” The problem is bigger than just one lawn or just one boat. The problem is one we all share.

When fertilizing, it’s important to test the soil and assess which chemicals are essential and to make sure the products used are certified by the Town of Nantucket. Avoiding application before heavy rain and planting hardy native plants are also easy ways to control the potential damage caused by fertilizer. If you hire a
