This garden has been in place for a month now, and so far the hares haven’t touched anything except the artemesia, yarrow, and iceland poppy (see this past post for more plant details). These are all pretty vigorous plants so if the rabbits only munch these occasionally and leave everything else alone, I will be more than happy.
A friend asked me if I would use mulch, and I will, but I’ve already thought of a few tweaks I’d like to make – a plant to move here, a tree to add there. So I will have to live with a bit of a weedy garden for a few more months – it’s easier to put mulch down after the planting is done. Plus I’m still tired from my May new-garden-making marathon. No more planting/moving until fall.
