After much hemming and hawing (I think that’s how you spell that?), I finally planted this beautiful, nearly mature Twombly’s Red Sentinal next to our giant blue atlas cedar. I intend to create a new planting bed around this tree but it currently looks a bit randomly stuck in the lawn. I’m hoping the recent heat waves ebb soon and I have renewed energy for digging in super dry ground around established tree roots.
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!
