when planting a front garden.
Do NOT plant flowers, perennials to be exact, that will flower all at the same time. Looks awesome and beautiful and gorgeous, but for about one week only. And then, not so much. Green is great, if your name is Kermit.
Every year I say to myself, 'KIM, divide those perennials already. KIM, move those perennials around. KIMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, for goodness sakes, do some research and plant flowers that will bloom all summer long.'
But does Kim listen? Oh no of course not.
But now that I've declared my gardening incompetence publicly, I have no choice next year. I WILL do some moving and shaking. I will transform that garden so it blooms all summer long. Until then, I will continue my war against the slugs.
