Bees…

Jul. 15, 2011 No Comments Posted under: Gardening Tips, Insects

The summer of bee stings. Working in gardens has it hazards…besides heat, sharp tools and poison weeds, now the bees are challenging me to territory. Smile…be safe Gentle Gardeners!

Planting potatoes on Good Friday was a ritual for my Dad. It was a festive time when we had little red potatoes, creamed pea, and sweet corn. Plus, it was a feast!

Lasagna Rose Garden

Feb. 15, 2011 No Comments Posted under: Projects

Gentle Lasagna Rose Garden, a fun adventure. Shrub roses are an excellent way to add everblooming clusters of roses from early spring until the first hard frost. Look for disease resistant foliage, and use them among other shrubs and perennials besides a rose garden…they need close to 6 hours of full sun and air for circulation. Have fun with roses.

Heritage Garden

Heritage Garden…designing plants that were in a different zone, yet were similar to Mom’s garden was the most fun…remembering the Old Fashioned Bleeding Hearts, and the Virginia Blue Bells…and of course the tall purple flocks, plus the rose shrubs. On a berm, one must use scale diligently as a gentle garden doesn’t speak of confusion or contain pushy “take-over” plants.
