The Pollinator Bed

September 9th, 2020

Last year I started a pollinator bed in an awkward spot by the driveway. It looked OK last year, but it was mostly weeding and watching the space for sun. This year I moved a ton of mature perennials to the bed from the nursery area and it has really filled out. Here are photos of the bed from earlier this summer in June and from a week or two ago.

A friend made this lovely sculpture for me, we ended up turning it the other way after this (as you can see in the following image).

I neglected to get a photo from this angle in June. I was just telling Mr Chiots the other day that I need to put a few pavers in the lawn around the garden so I can use them to stand on and get shots of the garden from the same spots each month to watch growth.

How’s your garden maturing? Have you added any new plants/borders this year?
