Garden club report from Weed'em & ReapPosted Sunday, May 3, 2009, at 10:18 AM
Moonflower and Cypress Vine
We will need to check with the contractor to see if the soil is ready to plant or if we need to add some peat moss or compost, but since it is all new soil, all I think we will need are some shovels, rakes and trowels. If you have a favorite tool, bring it along.
For the front garden we have settled on 4 -- Nandinas, 2 -- groups of Iceplant, monkey grass for trim, plantings of Forget-me not and miniature Marigolds. The poles will be planted with Cypress Vine (Cardinal Vine) and Moonflower vine for night-time flowers.
The sign garden will get 2 -- Pencil Holly, corners of Frosty Sedum, and fill plants of Dianthus (Sweet William). The brick garden currently has variegated ivy and we are going to leave that for now and see how it fits in with our other plants. We will want to clean up the bed a little and may spade in some soil amendments here also.
The planting meeting will be Sunday May 17th at 1:00 PM. We will meet at the VFW, ready to plant. I would think it should not last more then 1 ½ hours. If there are any questions or comments feel free to write to me at Steve@mybedfordcounty.com.
My apologies for cutting and pasting this into our web page. http://www.mybedfordcounty.com/Weedemand... You may also see a very similar post in the T-G but we want the information to be the same for all members.
Mike, I love my pineapple sage. Already sniffed it a few times but will wait until after the monsoon season to plant.
