The Hick’s yews I had chosen for the front door pots turned out to be a little too wily for the job. So I moved those out into the landscape and replaced them with this Green Mountain boxwood variety. They were a little odd-shaped but I’m hoping to trim them up nicely over the next couple seasons. I think they’ll add a nice formal contrast to the more wild and rangy-looking plantings in the rest of the front garden.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
