I know it doesn’t look like much but my poor husband has been working very hard to clear the ravine and lower garden-to-be of those god-awful Manitoba Maples. He’s still got many more to go but he’s making very good progress. Here’s my question: What should I seed or plant among the rocks that will be a no-fuss plant, perennial, ground cover or flower, that will spread like mad on it’s own? Not asking too much, am I.
The third picture is of my winter sowing. I’ve looked in a few and most seem to be doing something. Calendulas have germinated as have the yellow beans. The others look promising. I’m so excited.
Oh and back to the ravine, any thoughts on how to channel the bog into a pond so the rest will be dry ground and I can grow grass and shrubs and the like? Right now it looks like it will never dry out.
