I am looking forward to tilling some new beds in the next couple days. One will include these zinnia with some daisies and sunflowers.
Every good & successful garden starts with a plan. Every year I map it out. I am mindful to rotate crops & to plant with companions in mind. That promotes beneficial growth & pest resistance for many of the plants.
Our front bed includes several heuchera plants. It’s a shady bed under two maples, so heuchera do well together with vinca.
To the side of the house, we have some beautiful hostas and hydrangeas. That area is also mostly in shade & S intends it to become a “fairy garden” of sorts. Right now it mostly holds a bunch of limb detritus from the ice storms but we should be chipping that all soon.
We have a bed of lillies along the back of the house. It was here when we bought the house & includes beautiful Asiatic lillies.
Blackberries are coming!
This shows the leggy blackberry bush that I am rooting to be 5 different bushes.
