Garden Update

This Albany garden was installed this spring.  The home owner sent me these photos of the garden after his return from a stint of travel.
The flowering perennials and grasses are filling out and in full bloom.  In the foreground you can see Lavender 'Provence' and Lomandra 'Sea Breeze'.  Toward the fence there is a citrus and Salvia confertiflora that will eventually hide the tree stump.

Here you can see a walkway of wooly thyme in full bloom leading to the patio.  In the back ground off to the left are Gaillardia and Penstemon 'Garnet'.  Against the fence are the transplanted roses coming back to live and Kangaroo Paw.  In the immediate foreground is Hesperaloe parvifolia.

Here is a link to an earlier post of the before and after of this garden.

  1. Beginning your own compost pile is easy. It can be made from fruit and vegetable scraps from your meals, coffee grounds, tea bags, egg shells, old flowers that have died (the cuttings you've had in vases around your house are great for a compost pile), grass clippings, bedding from hamster, rabbits and guinea pig cages and even used paper! Just leave the meat out of it and your compost pile will be just fine.

  2. I appreciate what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back yet I would expect by every one of the remarks this is working for you too. BonsaiTreeGardener.net

  3. Plastic does not respond much on atmosphere changes. In any case, it might effortlessly twist since it is extremely adaptable and may dissolve if presented to excessively warm. Uncovering plastic a lot of daylight won't soften it however. homyden.com/best-leaf-shredder-garden-guide-picking-mulcher/
