Garden Log, 2.9.15

By Missinghenrymitchell

Nothing glamorous today. Shredded leaves for about 2 hours to adhere to my self-imposed promise to shred last year’s leaves before this year’s emerge. I’m cutting it very close. Fed the leatherleaf viburnums, witch hazel, roses with soybean meal. It will release slowly as the weather warms, so I’m not terribly concerned about chilly temperatures forecast for later in the week.

Spent a good chunk of time Sunday thinning out the Lavandula angustifolia and sprinkling lime on the pinks. Planted two seedling palms, names unknown, in the front near the road to try to do something for curb appeal. I’m tired of feeling depressed as I approach the house; this year is the year to finally get off the duff and do something about it.

Overjoyed to see the witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) in bloom.
