My mom brought a bunch of split sedum plants (stonecrop), and a subdivided a few into a total of 19 plants. These were placed next to Hosta Hillside NW and Hosta Hillside West in the late afternoon of Sunday, May 7, 2017. I’ll call this area Sedum Hillside NW (or Stonecrop Hillside NW).
Added 10 Easter Lily plants, donated by my sister, to the SE garden on Sunday, May 7th. Also threw down some grass seed. Just need to get some more rhubarb plants and this area will be done for now.
A beautiful morning for gardening on Sunday, May 7, 2017. I’m in the SE Garden. Container gardening didn’t work out here, so I will be trying something different. Rhubarb is looking good. I hope to get more rhubarb soon. Maybe put in tulip bulbs? Perhaps something else? Butterfly bushes are growing well. Instead of wood chip on the ground I might try grass seed to suppress weeds.
A tour of Hosta Hillside West that shows the 35-or-so split hosta that I transplanted yesterday and this morning (Saturday, May 6, 2017). It’s a great location for hosta: very little sun, steep location, away from where deer usually go, and easy to weed. Give it a year or two and it will look spectacular.
I split up the final huge clump of hosta on Hosta Hillside North today, Saturday, May 6, 2017. Then I split some huge hosta on Hosta Hillside Northwest, although I left one enormo clump as-is. Some lilacs are still blooming. Great morning for gardening. Clear, calm, and in the low 50s.
A tour of “Hosta Hillside Northwest”, progress on transplanted hosta near our lowest deck in a steep location, plans to divide more hosta and plant them directly behind the house, sedums appearing, and dealing with burdock and garlic mustard.
Pulled another bag of garlic mustard. Then I mistook wild phlox for dame’s rocket. Doh! Hosta hillside north progress. Looking great! Then it’s near the end for the bleeding hearts.
Northwest side of the house garden tour on Tuesday, May 2, 2017. Day lily, hosta, and lilacs… plans for a walking trail… and what to do in the interim with a recently cleared-out area that’s full of garlic mustard and wild rose? (I ended up pulling and bagging quite a bit of the garlic mustard in this video)
It’s been cold and rainy. And a hurt my neck last week (ouch!) but I’m recovering – slowly. Haven’t been gardening. But today I walked down to the south gardens to see how the day lily, dame’s rocket, and butterfly bushes are doing.
Ann’s fairy garden (faerie garden) as of Sunday, April 23, 2017.
What is a fairy garden? It’s a miniature garden! Lots of fun to create and change over the seasons.
