Re: My garden

Chris, great photos.  What I really love about your plantings is that, even
though you have some very special, new on the market plants that can stand
out, everything combined looks natural and very "at ease", not contrived.
Well, pots on the steps have to be contrived - they don't get there on their
own - but the general feeling is very comfortable.

Re Heucheras - mine tend to get sparse rather than fill out as the years
progress.  What am I doing wrong?
