Planting a garden. Hopeful. Certainty that growth will happen.

First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap. OR they leap the second year. 😂

Mass Planting. It’s a beautiful thing.

2 yards garden mix. No problem. Also the only way to plant new plants. @westerncanadagardensoil

Confessions of a Gardener.
I haven’t been gardening in my own yard very much in recent years. Today when I saw these Alliums just giving it their all, I started to uncover all the other things I have put in this poorly prepared spot that receives nothing but rescues and leftovers. I found the Eutrochium. I found the Echium. There are Martagon Lilies and Trollis about to bloom.
It’s all so exciting and it reminds me how therapeutic gardening can be. Trimming out the dead. Pulling that which does not belong. Die Creeping Bell Flower Die !!
Uncovering what has been hidden or forgotten.
Finding myself again in and through the garden.

Copper plants in copper box. With some other plants. So many plants fit in this window box!
I designed this window box with @manukaforge_artist_blacksmith (and he built it) and ohhhh does having a window box large enough to fit larger plants make for more fun planting and way less watering. #gardening #garden #plantsinpots #yycnow #yyc #beefood #happygardening

When the shelf in the pot breaks and you need way more soil....

I was gonna hold off on putting violas out until after this next bit of winter in the forecast but when I opened up the boxes the bees came so I planted them a pot. 🐝 .

Every year I plant spring pots and fret over them getting snowed on but they mostly make it through just fine and even if this ends up being a sacrificial pot I sure enjoyed planting it and hanging out with the bees.
I have extra supplies. Let me me know if I can help facilitate you planting your own pot. 😊

And I totally cut back the Karl Foerster 👇🏼

Had a few questions about gardening this week.
Specifically Karl Foerster Grass #calamagrostiskarlfoerster
I like to cut them down in April before the new growth begins.
Mine were pushed over with snow shovelling. So I’m going to clean them up today. ✌🏼😀 #keepingbusy #socialdistancing

There are many people that are out there gardening and loving plants and they just need a little help.  Maybe it is with design and mapping out an overall plan for your garden.  Maybe you need to talk to someone about what to do where to go, maybe you need help identifying what is a plant and what is a weed.  Maybe you need help knowing which plants to purchase.
