Today is the second day for viewing the winning gardens in this year's competition.
You purchase a passport at one of the Garden Centres.
I went around to many of the winning gardens, yesterday.
There were lots of good ideas in those gardens.
Today, I am volunteering as a gate sitter at one garden.
Oh boy Caroline That must have been fun!. Did you see Carol sitting at a gate on Saturday? I have no idea which one she was at but I know she was at one somewhere.
The Edmonton was this weekend too but did not go this year.
It is fun to visit the competition gardens.
I was gate sitting too. That gives you a chance to just sit at the entrance to one garden and really take it all in.
One year I want to come up and visit the Edmonton Competition gardens.
There were many interesting ideas in the gardens. Some I remember such as growing succulents in a strawberry planter. One garden had beautiful stands of a perennial grass
called South basin perennial rye grass. A plant I saw and liked was called "Burning hearts"
the flowers resembled bleeding hearts, but the foliage was a grey blue.
I won't make it for the plant share with my Mom's stuff. I am planing to get there Saturday am and dig like crazy till I drop. I do have a friend here that will take most of her stuff but I know that I won't be done in one day and will have to come back again.
Did you still want cuttings of the Coleus? I can bring down with me and leave with my Mom for you.
