Planted the Hardy Ageratum between the Dogwood and the Magnolia (where I don't mind if it spreads). Also planted the Variegated Chinese Privet next to the Foster's Holly behind the Juniper groundcover. Installed the pansies in the front island bed.
Covered the area between the croquet lawn and the octagaonl bed with pinestraw. Also the area between the octagonal bed and the fence and the area on the lower side between the silt fence and the house. Had to stop at the start of the pool fence on the bottom side because there are still too many weeds.
Where we had not covered the area adjacent to the drainage trenches with pinestraw we got silt in the trench. I scraped all the gravel and silt out again and sifted the gravel before putting some of it back in. Started Wednesday and finished Thursday.

Potted up the Salvia Mesa Scarlet and Penstemon I bought at Laymans, plus a cutting from the Variegated Mexican Bush Sage, the cutting of Tibouchina grandiflora that Betty gave me, a second Daisy Gardenia from the front that is suffering, the Goldmound Spirea from the front (also suffering) and the August Beauty Gardenia from the center of the three along the pool fence that may be too wet. Lynda gave me a Brugmansia on Tuesday and I potted that one up. I stepped up the remaining Ben Franklin tree too.

Planted the Autumn Chiffon Azalea inside the pool fence (to keep the deer away) not far from the Tea Plant and behind the Gardenias. Also planted the Inkberry Holly that I got from Woodlanders behind the pool fence along the golf course and the Woodlanders Hardy Bottlebrush between the pool fence and the raised perennial bed.
