Nefertiti planted in a sand dune
How lucky for me that my day off yesterday was one of the most spectacular gardening days of the year! And I had nine new hostas that needed a home.
There is a small hillock that even weeds don't grow well on and I decided that should be where the h. Nefertiti should live. I had never put a shovel into this area and as I did I found out why the weeds won't grow. There was about a half inch of what might be called topsoil then completely decomposed granitic rock AKA sand. Exactly the same color as the North Carolina sea shore, just a little more lumpy.
Thanks so much to those of you who posted about growing in Florida! I sunk a pot into the hole, filled it with dirt and put Nefertiti in. Pictures follow.
