bed is starting to take shape. It has been hard to start but I've been determined.
I've tried a couple of things in it and they just wouldn't take. So last year and this year I've been adding compost. Last year I also added money plants. 2 of the three survived. So this year right around the base I've added a clump of bronze/rust mums. So I have spring
, fall, and winter interest. For summer I'm thinking portulaca. The bed is full sun and on the dry side. I have some seeds
but they are not fresh. Should I plant them in pots and watch them carefully or wait and see if I can get any plants later in the season? I know they don't transplant all that well.
Your comments are very welcome.
Also I only made the bed about 18 inches wide from the base of the birdbath to the outside ring of stones so in total maybe 42 inches across. Should I make it wider?
