Planting and transplanting

I moved the 3 Nandinas from one diagonal of the croquet lawn to the other so that I could plant the 3 Buzz butterfly bushes on the long diagonal. I moved one Harbour Dwarf Nandina to the Camellias and More garden and potted up the other. I potted up the variegated Althea by the golf course because it was having an ant problem. I planted Siloam Double Classic Daylily, Pow Wow Wild Berry and Magnus Coneflowers in the Daylily Fountain Garden. I planted Voodoo Sedum in the One of Everything garden and Spirit Sedum in the Five Trees Garden, and Tricolor Sage in the Octagonal Perennial Garden. I planted Stella and Pardon Me Daylilies that I took out of the daylily garden in the Abelias and More garden. Also Hosta Tropical Storm in the courtyard and Geranium Rozanne under the bamboo. I moved the green crinum to the In Between Garden and planted Gaillardia Coral Spark in the Berm.

Mowed and edged all lawns - just the new path for the bermuda.

Planting and transplanting

In preparation for the drip being put in the turret front I moved the Pygmaea Thuja from the perennial bed to the front along with the Curly Red Leucothoe, and the Nana Gracilis Chamaecyparis. I put a half pot in the ground and planted the Tom Thumb Cotoneaster in it. I moved the Metallicum Japanese Painted Fern and the Ground Orchids under the Jade Snowflake. I moved the Princess Nandina to the Mail Box Garden and planted the Vintage Jade Distylium in the Hide The Hydrant bed.


Set up the edges of the grass path through the golf course bermuda. Cut the edges and sprayed the rest of the bermuda with roundup. I also created a raised bed by the Rivieriorum Bamboo and made a bamboo fence to keep the bamboo plant off the path.
