    A Bit of Housekeeping

    The acres look stunning. Its a tree that we have never had success at growing. Probably due to our south facing location and being on limestone.

    Which plants were truly outstanding in your garden in 2018?

    Tithonias did well as did Salvia coccinea, but the stand out performers were the Ipomea and Mina lobata that grew, flowered and climbed all over the place, they kept going until well into October.
