Re: update on garden/bottle brush


I have a similiar area between my carport & the neighbor's house, then a
board fence & garage wall. She isn't into gardening and is happy to let me
maintain this area. I've set up the narrower end as a winding path, with
spring bulbs, hostas, ferns & hellebores encroaching. Sunnier spots have
daylilies & roses. A wooden arch/trellis frames the south end by the garage,
opening on a border with roses, daylillies, rosemary, lavenders & lilies. I
keep in mind that she doesn't need my permission to change her property, so
anything on her side is "expendable". Nothing extremely valuable  (cash or
emotion) to me goes there. Lots of transplanted babies from elsewhere in the
yard.
