Charles Dudley Warner, 1829-1900, My Summer in a Garden
It’s October and the trees are beginning to give up their leaves.
When it comes to fall clean-up, there seems to be two schools of thought. One says do it, the other says don’t. I mostly follow the don’t group with a bit from the do group, but I’ll try to explain both.
Getting back to fall clean up…or not.
In bloom in my garden today: kirengeshoma palmata, ajuga, cyclamen coum, colchicum, cicimifuga, hosta lancifolia, caryopteris, Echinacea, salvia, daphne, roses, coreopsis, hardy geranium, nepeta, solanum crispum, gauara, fushia, canna, schizostylis, green beans, borage, alpine strawberries, bulb fennel.
