I further assessed the winter damage to the plants this afternoon. Bushes must not be as hardy as perennials?! “Willow” has a number of crispy, dead branches – poor thing was attacked by slugs (bad batch of purchased compost?) last fall! ‘She’ does have new leafing – so there is hope.
[As a sidebar: aren’t slugs THE single most disgusting varmint yet?!!
I’m trying not to freak out at the amount of dandelions that have to be excavated tomorrow. And isn’t it amazing how close they grow to your favorite plants?!!?
So here’s my assessment today…
What’s coming up (last year's photo - for 'effect'!!) :
(BIG yay! These were transplants from before construction)
Moonbeam (& 'Sweet Dreams') Coreopsis
Karl ForesterHere’s what’s currently MIA:
Dwarf Fountain Grass
And of course the ‘Original’ victim --- the Emerald Green arborvitae, that met its maker during the winter as an a la carte item at the “Bunnies’ Buffet”! We’ll see how I fair after tomorrow’s garden clean up! I’m getting the Advil out now!!
