I’ve been working on my gardening journal the last couple nights and have almost got a layout and what flowers will go where when spring arrives. I’m planning on having Cleome (Spider Plant), Coneflower and Hollyhock in the back corner. First I will dig up all of the sedum and daylilies and move them to new places in the yard or outside the yard fence.
I’ll plant 18 x 18 inch clusters of each of these three. As I move to the front of the triangle I’ll plant 12-18 inch tall plants such as Columbine, Lupine and Poppies.
The columbine is already in the ground and one of my favorite perennials. I also have primrose in the bed and they’re usually the first to bloom but the bloom doesn’t last too long so now I’m trying to find something to plant between each primrose plant to keep the garden blooming all year.
Can you tell I”m anxious for spring to get here and to dig in the dirt???
