I have to look at my Audubon map again, but I am pretty sure I don't get Mockingbirds here. I'm working on selling some of my thousands of blooms right out of the garden to save for nature trips! I am opening it to the public starting this Spring first. I really want to share the beauty more than anything. There are very few garden groups here, and a demand for organic flowers though. It would be wonderful helping people choose bouquets for their homes, and would give me a little extra income. I cut as many as I can for my 2 Daughters that live here, but so many go over with just me and myself watching the change, I am excited about welcoming people into my garden. Can't get fresher than choosing what you would like, and of coarse my prices will be so much less than the florists and so much more value. I love your choice of color and design in your lovely space. Isn't it a great feeling to create so much beauty and life? Happy end of Winter rest ~ and Sunny days ahead, Marian
Hi, Mim. I'm glad to have you as a friend on GS. I enjoyed looking at your gardens and especially love all your daylilies and hostas. My hostas here in NC have really suffered this summer in the brutal heat. I have to keep them contained to areas that I water daily.
"Thank you Clare :)
Believe it or not, it's just organics.
Early Spring: Corn gluten (This is a pre-emergent weed control)
Early Summer: Alfalfa pellets, also used as small animal food (Slow-release Nitrogen)
"Lorraine, this is the first year we've planted tulips in a long time. We gave up on them many years ago because the squirrels would always dig up and eat the bulbs and if any did manage to grow, the deer would eat them. We got around those two…"
