I just received my Spring Hill order! Every year I place an order for something new to put in my yard or get more of something that worked in the yard. One of the reasons I love Spring Hill is because underneath each plant discription it tells you the zone it grows in, whether it likes sun or shade and…my favorite part, whether it is deer resistant or not!
We have lots of deer and Spring Hill has been a great help in finding plants that will survive those beautiful but pesky animals. Wonderful advice that is cost effective. We have been on this property, that we built on, for 7 years now and are finally figuring out what will be safe to grow.
This year I purchased more Diamond Grass to create a border to our lower lawn with Flame Grass at each end. I purchased some carpet Phlox and a Russian Sage for our very steep bank (very sunny area), an Amethyst Astilbe for under our tree, and then I couldn’t resist a Maximilian Perennial Sunflower (to go in the flower bed by the driveway). I’ve also purchased an Orange & Lemon Gaillardia for outside my bedroom window.
You can see in the picture the Diamond Grass that I planted last year. It’s only the beginning of May so they should get pretty big this summer. Everything I recieved this year is now planted, I just have to “wait and see”…how things will turn out for this years purchases.
If you would like check out Spring Hill Nursary it’s very worth it. I just called and asked them to send each of my daughters a catalogue. You can also do this on-line.
My daughters are both in their first home and are wanting to plant flowers and gardens. Oh how this blesses me! More things to keep us connected as a family.
I’m sure there are lots of ways to “stay connected” to our married children. I’d love to hear some of your stories…
