My top 5 landscape and garden problems:
2. spotty areas in the shade grass
3. rose slugs
4. lots of mosquitoes this year
Good evening! It’s about 80 degrees and a lot less humid than the afternoon; the forecast is predicting lots of heat and humidity to come. For now, as you can see, the rabbits have won. I hate covering up the landscape with ugly steel cages, but this new bed of plants was getting eaten alive.
The rest of the garden is thriving. Here is a phlox plant that the rabbits have managed to avoid:
The Trumpet Creeper Vine is just starting to bloom; I don’t see many buds this year.
The Snakeroot (Black Cohosh) is getting ready to flower: I’ll post an update when it blooms.
The basil plants love this heat; I’ll be harvesting a bunch this week for homemade ravioli.
Some of the ferns are hanging on; over 50% were burned out weeks ago. The caladium looks content.
That’s it for today. What’s blooming in your garden?
