My friend Ellen is a past president of our local Westport Garden Club ("WCG"). She has been a great friend this year helping me learn a little bit more about taking care of my deer infested garden. I know. In Connecticut, that last part is redundant. I offered Ellen half of my Elephant Ear Hosta for the WGC's spring plant sale. I had no idea how intense the root ball of a senior hosta could be. We used a saw to separate the roots!
Yesterday, she came back and helped me plant twenty new green plants for my backyard.
We planted three types of hosta (along with four of the elephant ear hostas that we transplanted from my overgrown plants last month).
We planted some grasses for the shade.
I went to Gilbertie's Nursery in town looking for some annuals. I found this lovely metal pig, but he didn't come home with me, jiggety jog.
These oversized ceramic glazed vases caught my eye. I was thinking of planting a distinct boxer bush inside and placing them in the yard for an eye catching spot.
But back to our green plants. We planted some ferns for the shade as well.
I'm excited to watch them grow and spread and have green growing everywhere! Next up will be some deer repellent spray. Do you have any good experience with the spray? Which brand do you like the best?
