the Orchard garden planted

After a busy gardening week-end, I’m too tired to write much but here’s a quick look at the orchard garden (north-west corner, above).  What’s here?  Left to right-ish: a purple bugbane, coral bells ‘Red Sea’, variegated Solomon’s seal, 3 deschampsia cespitosa ‘Goldtau’; Evans cherry tree, 5 sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, 3 spirea ‘Dakota Goldcharm’, haskap ‘Aurora Borealis’, green onions, and rhubarb.

  1. Good question, thanks Kim. I don’t like plastic edging and any edging is way too much work to install (properly). Actually, I really like the look of just a clean-cut line between grass and garden, and I find re-doing it once a year with the halfmoon edger keeps everything under control. If you cut deep enough so that soil doesn’t butt up right against the edge, it slows the grass down. What do you do?
