Every Gardener Knows...

... that a successful perennial garden begins when the shovel slices through the soil to create a hole big enough for the first plant. Others will say it begins with a plan, a design, an idea. That's also correct. But the garden doesn't begin to take root until the shovel moves the soil aside and the plant goes into the ground.


Cottage style gardening continues to be the all time favorite style of gardening where peonies are used throughout because of their beauty.
