Shade plants ordered!
Just went on Veseys' website and placed an order for
- 10 hostas
- 10 astilbes
- 2 bleeding hearts
- 10 ferns
for my shady backyard.
I'm also buying 3 blue sea holly for the front garden: the blue will be a nice cool contrast to all the warm colors of the roses. I thought of buying some foxgloves, too, but I think I prefer the foxgloves at East End Garden Centre, so I've got to hop on my bike and make a trip over there.
I've reconciled myself to pulling up the daffodils in the back yard: I've got lots of greenery, but only 4 flowers this year, and because there are so many of them, it's difficult to (a) plant around them (b) get rid of the goutweed that has spread among them.
