|The first snow fell last night so it is high time to get these lovely shade garden plants in the ground!|
The days are getting shorter and cooler and the blessed rains of autumn are breaking through the dry days of summer. It is finally fall planting season! Part of me goes into grieving every year at this time, as I hate to see the growing season end. But hope says to look forward to what is to come and so I like to channel my disappointment in to garden tasks that will bear fruit in the coming year.
I came home last week from a perennial plant sale with golden sedge, purple Heucheras, pastel Astilbe, Autumn ferns and some new varieties of golden Hosta will fill everything out in the Beech tree bed nicely.
Coming home with a minivan full of plants ... And three kids. There is just room enough for all! Here is Lavender 'Phenomenal', which is said to be extremely hardy.
|Yes, more in the passengers seat! A whole trolley of plants fit right, tight in here, if you can believe it.|
I am looking forward to seeing these lovely shade and sun plants filled out in a few years.
Happy fall planting!
