Happy Spring. The tulips and daffodils are blooming, bluebirds are nesting, bloodroots are blossoming and trillium and epimediums are budding. It is an early spring this year. After reading Kenton Seth and Paul Spriggs book “The Crevice Garden” this winter, I decided I needed to build one. A garden club friend had lots of rocks he wanted to get rid of so I went to his house and loaded up the SUV. I had 3 yards of screened topsoil delivered. I went to a local landscaping business and bought chipped stone for the top dressing. The next task was to dig out the plants that were in the space. I had astilbe, perennial mums, siberian iris, thread-leaf coreopsis, dianthus, and betony in the area. All had become overgrown and too large so I dug them, split them and potted them up for my garden club’s plant sale in May.
I need some more plants but it is a start. Stay tuned….
