Garden journal entry


April 15, 2012. April: time for combing through the plants that survived summer and winter in my nursery areas (disappointingly few, this year), and finding places for them in the various garden areas. For the most part, that's not a hard thing to do, since last season left so many holes in the garden beds. But the little ones, which can really only go into the rock garden (or get lost as soon as bigger neighbors in the regular borders overpower them) can be harder to place. So I decided to use a little hypertufa trough to house a few of them (a couple different species of miniature limonium, a bergeranthus, and edraianthus, and a cluster of unknown alliums). I've never really tried planting in troughs (and I'll need something bigger if I want to be more serious about it), but I hope that this will allow me to keep these little guys alive for up close inspection (and maybe winter protection). It doesn't look like much for now, but if the experiment is at least half-way successful, I'll be posting an update here a bit later in the year. Fingers crossed.
