2008 Garden Additions

Posted Jun 06 2009 12:04am
Note to self: refer to this post when my garden's progress seems SO SLOW! 2008 was my first full year of gardening at my Spokane home, and I planted all sorts of things (in addition to plantings from late summer/fall of 2007). No doubt later years will include more editing: transplanting and shovel pruning. But 2008 was a year to start experimenting. Barren beds were planted with baby perennials, bare root english roses, a few lilacs and hydrangeas and fourteen 15-gallon sized trees. Here's the list:
