I have been seriously thinking about finishing the thought I had last year about making a new flower garden in the side yard.
This garden area, has never grown much grass, so I pretty much feel I don't need anything on the ground first off. and my woods are LOADED with rocks, as soon as it dries up I plan on getting the tractor out there and hauling rocks.
My question is.
This area, is neither full sun or full shade. But too much sun for full shade plants like hostas, and not enough sun for full sun plants.
I think it pretty much gets afternoon sun but dappled. I do have some iris's planted over in that area and they do grow ok. But the daylilies that are in that area, do not grow well at all.
What kind of plants do you suggest I go with for this area.
I may have to work out a few trades this year to fill this bed.
But so far, that will be my only expense on this new garden, (trades) as I have all kinds of mulch out there and a huge load of chicken litter, although my husband would shoot me if I used it in a flower garden other than a veggie garden.
I hope to get this all up and started when he leaves for the pipeline. Will give me something to keep busy.
There are a few trees I will be working around with the flower garden. pine trees I think, maybe an oak tree too.
