Woodland Plantings Ready

This is going to be a long week as the days will drag on until Friday. This upcoming weekend will be the first to be spent out at the woodland gardens this year. Earlier day trips were great but it seems as if a few hours pass so quickly and then it is time to go.. Along with the first weekend Woodhaven will also be hosting the Spring Fling Weekend so a lot of activities will be taking place.

New Woodland Garden PlantsThis weekend the new woodland garden plants will be installed and I can hardly wait. Pictured at the left are astilbe ‘Maggie Daley’, Mukdenia rossii ‘Karasuba’, Cimicifuga ‘Hillside Black Beauty’, also some toad lilies. It is a group of woodland plants that I think should do well in our woodland garden.

Adding to the plantings is always on my list of to do projects. My hope is to have a diverse garden with as many different woodland plants as possible. The diversity is what I think will give the woodland garden it’s charm.


Along with the plantings of course I will be tackling a few other projects. For a couple of years now I have allowed the woodpile to get into shambles and even though it is at the back of the property it still needs to be addressed. There are also yearly task such as the planting beds and the walk paths that need attention. It will not e all work as some time will be spent enjoying the peace and serenity of the woodland gardens and all of it’s inhabitants. Well that is really not true, all of it’s inhabitants EXCEPT THE MOLES!
