Don't be confused by my name. We just moved up at the end of September to Lowell, IN from the Tampa bay area of FL, where I had lived these past 30 yrs. We're on two acres and I have a 5 yr plan to landscape a good part of it into beds with a meandering path. I'll be following the posts here to help reaquaint me with gardening up north, something that I played with a little being limited by having only my parent's home to experiment with before I left for college. Fortunately, about twenty-odd concrete pieces, mostly statues but also including three birdbaths and two benches, came with me. We had 2.5 acres in Florida, so I had some room there. I tend to want plants not found in the big box stores, so your experiences, trials and errs will be indispensable. STU

What I would do, by researching -- find plants you'd like to have, check out the Seed Trading Forum... most will send seeds just for postage -- and winter sow many of your plants...

will give you something to do over the winter, and save you lots of $$ in the long run.

Welcome to the Upper Midwest Forum... and hope you enjoy the winters... they will obviously be longer than in Tampa.
