If you missed the 30th annual Lawn and Garden Show, then you missed television personality and landscape designer P. Allen Smith’s Spring gardening tips. But don’t we worry, 417 Home Editor Heather Kane was there and has the details on P. Allen Smith's likes, dislikes and his love for Moss Mountain Farm.
The Epic Beauty of Moss Mountain Farm
If you’ve never visited Moss Mountain Farm in Little Rock, AR then you're definitely missing out. The 650-acre estate offers up majestic views of The Arkansas River Valley and is filled with gardens, orchards, ponds and beautiful views of the countryside. It’s also the Arkansas home to famous landscape designer P. Allen Smith. Mid-March daffodil hill has over 875,000 blooms with a multitude of varieties of daffodils. The farm is also home to a 300+-year-old oak tree Allen calls Big Sister Oak. It provides a beautiful canopy for gatherings and events at the farm. Allen’s formal rose garden is a newer addition to the farm, housing American specimens from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. Another Spring sight to see is the wisteria trees in bloom. “Here today, gone tomorrow! But that’s the delightful thing about it.” Allen proclaimed during his presentation. Along with flower gardens and orchards, Moss Mountain Farm is home to the Poultry Palace, which serves as Allen's rather grande chicken coupe, and White Dorper sheep. You can also find over 300 veggie varieties growing throughout the seasons.
