This weekend I spent a lot of time planting perennials and vegetables, and there are many more to plant. I had plans of taking photos of my work, both for the blog and for my garden journal. However, I planted until dark and was chased in by the mosquitoes.
Most of the perennials were planted in a nursery area, they will be transplanted in a year or two when their final resting place is finished and when they have grown in size. Some of them will remain in the nursery area for a few years until they are large enough to divide. By then, I will have new garden areas that will be needing new plants. I love having full sized plants to fill them with so they look more established right away. I also like starting with one plant to see how they like the soil and microclimate in my garden.
