LOL....oh i pulled back the leaves in some areas and found all kinds of stuff sprouting! But I put the leaves back over it because there is still much chance of freezing weather.

You can PM me about the dragons blood sedum.

i am sure i will have lots of surprises when spring comes.
i planted so much stuff in late fall ... sometimes i'm afraid even in layers (forgetting i planted something in spot X, and planting something else on top)...

can't wait for spring to come... i will probably be with a chart and pen in my hands...writing down what i have.

and then with plastic tags to stick in the ground next to them so i remember...

guess it'll soon look like a mini-botanical garden... in the middle of the village!

LOL

LOL.....that sounds like me, stuff on top of stuff. I know I have stuff pretty close (hahaha!) So this year, I am with Calin.

There has got to me a nice and neat way to mark everything so that in the winter you don't look like you have a yard full of sticks coming up out of the ground.

Ideas anyone?

You could try using a pemanent marker on plastic tags and then putting the tags on or in the ground next to the seed/bulb. Most of my stuff is potted but I've been using strips cut from milk cartons for tags, stuck in the edge of the pots.
Or sketch a layout of the bed with what is where.

Hmmm.... how about making some CUTE tags. Some kind of wire that is stiff enough to stand up, that you can curl the end and put a little metal hanging tag on the end.

Or make little signs on stakes that read 'future home of ....' or 'reserved for ....' and stick them where you planted the item in question. Would give a marker for what is where but not look tacky.

Spring is on the way!


Yes, my snowball bush has buds, and the hellobores are blooming!

Sunny, I order form Eflowers.com sometimes. I think they are located near you.

If it would just warm up too.
