Free Plants!

May 12th, 2015 at 03:30 pm

We got an email from our neighborhood association to let us know that they were redoing the plantings near the entry to our streets (we have 66 homes total and a big sign out front). They said that they'd be taking out some feather grass and we could take some if we wanted. This was the plant I was planning for the area along our driveway anyway, so D went down and got three plants.

Feathergrass tends to self-propagate, which for us is a good thing since that area is so barren. I want to plant some allium, too.

It's hard to grow anything here. It's not just the water; it's the terrible soil, too.

I'm starting to get excited about our garden despite the fact that it is really cold, and it's supposed to be cold all week. It snowed last weekend. I'm ready for summer!

    That's exciting! I got some free day lilies from a FB group and was over the moon with excitement.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE free plants!

    Soil can be improved. If you add chopped up leaves and grass clippings, a little bit of compost every year, in a couple years you'll have wonderful dirt.

    A friend of mine loves Virginia bluebells. She noticed that a house marked for demolition had tons of bluebells growing in the yard. She got in touch with the company and was told, "Go for it!" So she filled up a wheelbarrow with bluebells! She is over the top!
