Well, the weather has begun to cool off a bit, and it's been a nice week for getting fall gardening chores done. I got a new bed tilled up and 60 of my double form dl's moved into it. I've also been transferring new arrivals from their holding beds and pots, to my garden beds. In all, I've moved 130 clumps of dl's this week so far. Getting started lining out for my spring sell too.
Below are a couple of before and after photos of my new bed. The red cedar tree originally grew untrimmed all the way to the ground. It took up way too much space in my side yard so I had my son trim it up for me. (See first photo) Then I tilled up a horseshoe shaped bed on the front side of the tree and planted most of my dbl. form dl's there. I've planted a gardenia, a red camillia, and a yellow flowering senna behind the bed. I am also going to transfer 3 blue hydrangea shrubs, with the help of my son, in between the other shrubs. The 2nd photo was taken after planting the dl's and first 3 shrubs, and mulching the dl bed with pinestraw. I'll try to remember to post a photo of the bed next season when the dl's are blooming. :) Loving this great weather....what have ya'll been up too?
