Woodland Shade Gardening

Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!

Vinca

I didn’t realize the camera lens was fogging after being in the air conditioned house.  Oops!  But the front 12″ of this bed, all the way around, is jam-packed with the vinca I dug to open the new path.  When I laid the stones around the perimeter, this spring, to be part of the erosion control, I just placed the stones in the flattened out trench Carl had made, through the years.  Then I back-filled it with chipped leaves from a source I stored last fall.  So there was the vinca I transplanted to this location a couple of years ago, from where it was growing outside it’s bed beside the garage, and then there was a 12″-18″ perimeter of just leaves, then the stone wall.  Now, it looks more grown in.  I will really need to keep it watered throughout the summer.
