My boyfriend and I are moving into a rock house/ store in northwest Ga that was built in 1934. We have heard stories from neighbors who have stopped by as we were working about the man who built it 100% by hand by him self. Not only did he build a store, which was connected to the house, he also built 5 huge planters, 2 bridges, a well, and the walls where a small stream flows.
The rock store/house is already a local mark and we want to do it justice as we restore it. We have a plan for the inside but have no idea for the outside.
I have already bought a few bulbs (tulips, crocus, drumstick allium, Ostrowskianum Allium, and stripped squill) in a variety that amount to 450 bulbs. They have been in the bottom drawer of my fridge since late September.
I understand that we will be adding to the garden each year and that we have to start somewhere.
How would you suggest to start to plan a garden for an old house like this? What other plants would you suggest we plant?
I appreciate any and all ideas
