Garden update

| No Comments

I was a busy bee Wednesday last week during the holiday. The sun actually shown one day between rain storms so I headed outside to piddle in the gardens a bit.

I pulled weeds from the front and back garden areas and from around the edges of the front lawn. Then, since we had almost 2 full bags of redwood compost remaining from summer, I put another 2 inches or so of compost under the rose bushes in the front and back and under the flowering plants in the front. I'll be pruning the rose bushes either this weekend or I need to decide whether I want to transplant the backyard rose bushes into containers which I can place against the wall of the house. I don't think they get enough sunlight where they are now.

The calla lillies didn't do very well on the front porch: In around September after I cleaned off all the black bugs that were making a home under the leaves, the leaves began dying faster. There wasn't much left when I cut down the remaining leaves last week. I'll try another type of plant in that pot next year...unless the calla lillies decide to bloom from what little is left in the soil...

In the hope that they will grow back (they're so beautiful!), I also cut down to stubs the coleous plants on the front porch. They were slowing losing leaves and looking the worse for cold air wear.
