Woodland Shade Gardening

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

South Border

The South Border was planted only a few weeks ago and the deciduous shrubs in it have not fully leafed out.  Eventually, all the evergreen background shrubs, and deciduous shrubs, will grow to touch each other and there should be no ground visible.  Much planning went into the placement of these shrubs, as well as the placement of all the other shrub borders, and I tried to achieve a meandering line where this bed broadens on the east end.  I’m not so sure this ‘meandering’ looks too well right now, but I have dreams of it maturing into a more loosely constructed look in the future. The Pocket Bed is one of several that are located in the front edge of the East Border, along the back of the yard.  They are in well amended soil that should support the fern collections, dicentra, bergenia, hostas, and some native Wild Ginger from the woods at Mother’s house.  Hope everyone has enjoyed this garden tour, and may it brighten your spring day.  Please let me know if you see areas I need to tweak, or areas that work well and should be repeated, etc. You know how I love to move things around!
