Woodland Shade Gardening

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

What a day!

What a wonderful day on Tuesday!  My plants were purchased on Monday, many of the holes for planting had been dug in January & February (!) and I was ready to mix backfill (cow manure, chipped leaves, and dirt), and then to mulch with my own chipped leaves, compliments of Mother Nature in the fall of 2014.  I expected this to be a 2-day project, but all the details fell into place and it was completed in 1 day!  I planted 12 shrubs from the nursery, dug and transplanted 5 shrubs that were in the way of the placement of the evergreen hedge along the fence line and here it is.  The evergreen hedge will mature at 6-8′ tall, with the azaleas in the front edge being about 3′ tall.  The dogwoods, crape myrtle, abelia, and clethra are not very noticeable in these photos.  Maybe I will take some more photos after their foliage opens in a few weeks.
