West Side Garden
After a year of observing what was in the garden, it is now time to rip them up redesign them. The first plant to go was yarrow. Believe it or not but all the bare spots of this garden was previously filled with yarrow. This was mostly the white stuff, which I found ugly.
There is more red/orange yarrow in other gardens which I am giving to a coworker and who ever else wants it. My coworker is ripping up her stella de ora daylilies and trading them for my yarrow, now that is a great trade.
I still have to tackle the mess in the corner, and move irises and ditch day lilies, but it is a start. The bed is going to be filled with yellow tulips and daffodils and probably some of the cone flowers we started from seed. I am not sure what to do with all the babies breath, leave it or move it. The garden plan needs some more thought.
