New Garden in One Morning!

The area right next to our Demonstration Garden was planned to be an expansion for a demonstration of shade-loving perennials. We’ve been working on it slowly over the past year, with the fence constructed last fall and planning going on throughout the winter. The irrigation system got redone last week. Today was planting day! Here are a few before and after shots.

Before planting.

Before planting. Some light weeding is taking place before getting started.

After the soil was prepared, they placed all the plants.

After planting! The plants were good sized going in, which helps make it look fuller right now.

The view in the other direction after planting. From dirt to garden in one morning!
