Do you have any new garden
additions this year? I have found
some of my bulbs multiplied so much
that I moved them on a rainy day.
and now today rain. Yesterday, we spent the whole day getting ready for a garage sale
but today it rained so we are waiting
in the back yard.
I love to look at YouTube videos about
English Garden style. Have you noticed
that some people love the style where
lots of plants grow together and it is rather
wild. Others like "cluster" gardening
where you just have one type of flower
in a group together.
I think I prefer somewhere in between
the two. Last year toward the end
of summer our garden grew together more
than I like so and in the fall I removed a lot
of plants and just put them out on the drive.
Over a period of a few days people
just took them away which was nice.
I had too many irises in the same color
so I decided to thin them out. I frankly
think that everyone will be doing this once
a garden grows.
seem to adore foxgloves. I have been
learning to watch for and move the "babies" that come up at the base of the mother plant.
Usually by the end of summer there are
some babies than can be planted in
good soil for spring.
I also love Sweet William and have grown
it from seed and moved it around the yard.
I have moved a lot of plants this spring
while it is still cool. Some of them are ones that have come up right next to
and inside another plant at the base.
I have already shared four small boxes
of coneflowers this spring and removed
some irises. They disappeared from the
drive in no time. I just purchased two
more types of irises as I had too many
of the same 3 colors.
We all sure have
our passions and opinions about
gardening! What type of garden
do you have?
