Fall Shape Up

Since it's September, this is the time to begin dividing your perennials and transplanting them. Don't forget to water them regularly after you've moved them. It's also a great time to cut your garden beds now too.

What's new?
  • I transplanted 2 trees that my neighbor was getting rid of. I placed on against the fence and another in front of our condensing unit to conceal it from the front of the house. I was afraid they wouldn't survive, but I've been watering them and they seem to be doing ok.
  • I divided & transplanted a ton of mature Hosta given to me by my neighbor. I made a border of them along the back of the yard. They are solid green.
  • Also from a neighbor, I transplanted a small leaf Azalea to the very back garden bed. It has really pretty tiny leaves with a little bit of reddish on the tips. The branches also have that japanese maple look where it looks tiered.
  • Then I transplanted some red leaf little tree or shrub that has white flowers in the spring. I don't know the name of this yet.
  • I divided and transplanted a ton of Irises in Purple, White and Burgundy. I must have moved 40 bulbs.
  • I cleaned up the weeds, brush and worn veggie plants.
  • I cut a new garden bed along the back and side of the shed. It still needs some more work, but it's getting there.
  • I planted a little Crepe Myrtle.
