Bosky Dell Natives and they are huge and beautiful, unlike the mostly dead ones we got a couple weeks ago. They filled up a large burlap bag. Jeff got them in the ground today but I haven't taken a picture yet.
Oh, and look who's awake!
Our blueberries we bought from One Green World are looking beautiful.
ones we got from the online place are dead sticks.
Spit & Vinegar gave us a bunch of flower starts. I'm going to list them below mostly so I have a record. This year we've planted them in the backyard but we'll probably start moving some of them up into the front planter next fall.
- epimedium—shade loving, tolerates most soil including dry soil.
- bee balm—gets 4-5' tall and beloved by hummingbirds and bees and me! The bee balm is the tall red stuff
- celandine poppies—at least some shade. very tolerant. Jeff took photo
- hellebore—blooms most of winter. Likes shade to some sun.
- ornamental oregano—likes sun and not too much moisture
- pulmonaria—wonderful blue flowers in early spring that tolerate rain very well. Great shade to sun plant.
This weekend the Multnomah Master Gardeners are having their Incredible Edibles sale and I'm hoping to pick up a few vegetable starts.
I just read this and I'm literally going to log off to jump in my car and head to their sale. I love reading your blog!! I get so many ideas and resources.ReplyDelete
I hope you made it to the sale. The master gardeners have some great varieties. We did pick up a few plants this year.Delete
