Re: Weekend plants and stuff

Well, I did finally put in my annual/tender perennial bed today.  Decided to
try it without first tilling to break up the Silver Maple roots.  I'd just
finished and was trimming some grass up front when a gentleman passing by
complimented me on the garden.  He made an interesting comment.  He said,
"You've got so much in here, but nothing looks overgrown."  Of course this
is because I'm always dividing and potting up for sales and to give away,
but his comment made me think what a mess I'd have if I didn't.  I've seen
yards where people put too much in and over time they turn sloppy.  Now this
is not to say that I haven't had that problem too, but perhaps not as much,
because of all my dividing.
