The Garden has Settled In…

New gardens look like they belong

New gardens look like they belong

Many new landscapes take a while to meld seamlessly with their surroundings.  I am not a fan of this gardening technique.  The three years it takes for most perennials to mature seems too long to realize your vision.  Either way, the plants hardly ever behave exactly as you expect.  For instance, why did every ‘Overdam’ grass turn brown soon after planting?  They flowered just fine, but something seems strange.  I never used this grass before, so it will be a lesson that encompasses several growing seasons.  I have to learn the nature of this plant.

It is almost mid-September, and soon it will be time to cut back and get this new garden ready for its first winter rest.  After a brilliant birth it needs to garner strength for its juvenile season.
