Autumn Garden design and the newsletter

DON’T MISS THE INFORMATION ON THE GORGEOUS NEW BANNER UP THERE.

The autumn newsletter is ready to send out now it’s you like to sign up. Push the button and I’ll get it to you.

Here’s a part of ┬áthe garden this week. The Plant of the Week is this wonderful combination of plants to illustrate how many shapes and sizes you can put together for a colourful selection even though the rest of the garden hasn’t gone into flames: Hackocholoa macra ‘Aureola’ with a Chamaecyparis, Sambucus ‘Black Lace’ and a small Japanese maple. The leaves have variety in shapes which is a very important principle when you put plants together to last out this season. The bloom on the right is the fabulous Aster ‘Little Carlow’ which is incredibly floriferous

I love the lushness, and assume the garden is so full it leaves no room for the digging of squirrels (the bane of my existence). But can you weed it or do you need to?

Dear Marjorie
Do you know of a do-it-yourself-kit for a mini-electric-fence to put around a vegetable planter ?
This is an idea whose time has come !!

Check out http://www.rittenhouse.ca and see if they have one. Otherwise, throw a fine net over the area (unless it’s huge). If you can’t find anything I’ll try to do so.
