Making More Perennials

24 Apr

..oops, posted this up accidentially..oh well. We took some of our ‘New Zealand Grass’ and split it into 2 additional plants and planted them in one of our beds from last fall..when this type of grass is on sale we are going to buy more of it..it looks great all season long.

..we might do some more splitting too with these 3: our near dead raspberry bushes rebounded back last year..nice ( with our full compost roller in the background..great for making compost tea!)

image

..split some of the flowers which A* dug up from her grandfathers yard

image

..and part of our rose bush from back at our old house. We planted this and basically forgot about it..I actually whippersnipped it to nothing on 2 occasions and it managed to bounce back and is now expanding outside of the original boundary.

..We like to have memories in the form of ‘plants from past habitations’..growing up we always had mountain ash, lilacs and black locust..(which I planted 2 of last week)..we also have some other plants that we want: Chinese Lanterns…and of course some fruit trees..but we are most of the way there for our initial plantings…and as a note this post was incomplete and after I published it accidentially there was no going back ..so there will be a part 2. hehe

    Don’t you just love spring?! I have some iris that my Aunt gave me that are going to bloom this year. I am so excited. I hope the lousy slugs don’t rain on my parade.

      I do!! after winter SPring just seems much nicer..if we could do something about the mud it would be my favorite season..the promise of something new! We do a slug sweep at dusk..plus beer baits work well for slugs but for large gardens like yours it might be tough!!..the beer might be best kept for drowning slug sorrows.
