A Place For My Trees

Not a very pretty picture but a very useful space. We tilled a place for my trees. I'll have to rake the roots out, lay fabric & some sort of border before planting my trees. The trees are in pots and were basically sticks when I bought them so they should be ok in pots for awhile.

I'm still hoping that someday I'll have a place to plant them so I haven't given them away yet. I still have large pots of wisteria that I planted from seeds a few years ago. Isn't it sick? What's rather embarrassing is I find myself looking for the white flowering variety when I haven't even planted the purple yet. Since we still plan on moving ((someday)) I'll keep the madness going.

While walking around the garden I happen to run across a bunch of coral bell volunteers. This is the first time I have ever noticed them self seeding like this. I think it might be because I didn't mulch real heavy with wood chips in that particular area. I hate to pull them up so I think I'll let them stay this season and then pot them up in the spring. I'm sure I know someone that will give them a good home.


  1. You know you have a problem when you want a plant you already have unplanted just because it is a different color.

    It is an addiction. Of course in the world of addictions you could have a worse one.

  2. Hello!

    My friends call it CHAD disorder. Compulsive Horticultural Acquisition Disease

    lol I think a lot of us have it.

  3. Wow! Coral bell self-seeded?! I wish I'd be so lucky!
