I planted the nandinas after chopping out several maple tree roots. I had to work around the larger roots which were as thick as my arm. I then planted the ferns from the plant rescue, and some lenten roses from friends. Once that was done I top-dressed it with some partially composted hardwood mulch that has been in the yard for a couple of years. Rich stuff.
The temperature was 78 F when I started and it was 93 F when I finished. If we sweat out our toxins I believe I am currently toxin-free.
I'm sad to report that the dogwood did not make it. I think I am just not supposed to have a dogwood tree.
While cooling down before heading inside, I snapped a photo of the callow lily by the raised garden beds and the boardwalk I put between the beds. On Saturday I ripped an old section of dog eared fence to make the walk.
|I really need to plant more of these.|
|The boardwalk to nowhere.|
