Welcome!

Nice job you have done there. Did you do all the brick work yourself?

Truly spectacular! You have a great sense of color combinations and design.

I'd love to hear more about your plant list/seed growing experience. Did you winter sow in pots...have a greenhouse...or direct sow?

Thanks so much for sharing,
Cameron

Thank you all. It's my passion.
All the seeds were sown indoors in my sunroom. The room is 14X16 and trust me there was no room to walk :).
There are a lot of gallilardia, coreopsis and Dianthus. The lilies, iris and sage I bought as roots/bulb/corns etc. I just went crazy and planted them all in two days two springs ago. This year they all really bloomed well. I had to thin a lot of stuff out it was so crowded.

I use sweet peat for mulch. That stuff is amazing. It acts as an organic fertilizer and keeps the soil moist. This fall I am going to mulch with compost then I have three huge piles in the back yard that are ready . I can't wait to see next years results!
