From Houzz, Evolving garden

15 Sep

 

My Evolving garden…

I observed this year the abundance of large, long blooming flowers which had above average rainfall.  Two dozen varieties of daylilies and hostas never looked so good!

It will be tempting to water more in dry spells.

Originally, (15 years ago) my garden was primarily full sun…then transitioned more to shade as the surrounding trees grew.  This year we are transitioning back to full sun due to the lost of ash trees infected by a boring insect.

Some plants will be moved.

My third observation on evolving garden is the nature of perennial plant root systems which over time choke themselves.  Division required!

More plants will be moved.

    My garden has evolved from large flower beds to smaller and smaller ones. Some are gone completely. I’m happy with just my planter box. Less flower beds for me means more lawn mowing for hubby.
