Gardening / October 5, 2018 / Emily Jean.
Fast forward a few years, I now had my own home with visions of gorgeous gardens blooming in my head. The property was surrounded by trees, which we loved not only for the privacy but the house was kept quite cold during the hot summer months.
The two green plants with white stripes found a home next to a broken concrete birdbath, one on either side. The following Spring during winter clean up I noticed small green shoots popping up beside the birdbath but again didn’t get too excited.
For instance, a partly shaded walkway alongside your home would make a perfect candidate for this combination, plant the shrubs or tall perennials along the back next to the house with the Hostas placed in front can look quite stunning.
Using a tiller, we formed a circle around the base and mixed good topsoil into the existing dirt, edged the ring with bricks, all that was a need now were the plants. It looked great, and I just knew by the following year with regular watering and feeding those six plants would be more significant, fuller and gorgeous.
