So, here is an update on my new garden under my two large trees in front of my house. I am extremely happy with how it is coming along.....

Before, with just some dead grass...

Now, with soil conditioned, and added and a few plants...

New Stained Glass and Pinot Gris Heuchera, plus a really pretty fern. I really hope this will fill in nicely in the next few years.


The beds still need more mulch and some fine bark to look right, not to mention a border, but I am very pleased with it so far!! I still have lots of hosta that have been waiting in the backyard garden to be moved up here. Many of those need identified, so it should be fun!!

Thanks for looking,

WOW! What a difference! It makes the rest of the lawn look better and will be a great place to show case your hostas.

Fabulous, Gabby! You have Hosta sytle!

RE: New larger hosta garden update....

How pretty that is going to be!!! And you have enough room for when the hosta bug hits you worse than you have it now!!!

RE: New larger hosta garden update....

I sure hope the hosta bug doesn't hit me worse than now--lol!!!!!

I am having a lot of fun learning about them and the history. I think the fact that they each have such fun easy names almost gives them personality;)

I was able to find Stained Glass and Blue Angel yesterday, something that was not available in my area a couple of years ago. The better nurseries here (there are like 2) are finally getting some variety, which makes me very happy!!

I will update with the final pics soon, thanks for the comments!!
