Update on “Country Formal Cutting Garden”

I had a chance to visit the Todino’s cutting garden this week.  The tulips were showing of. If you saw the earlier article, I showed the varieties and the planting method for colors and for early, mid season, and late blooming.  That article is here:

A couple of weeks before the above picture was taken, Dekie and I stopped by and planted some snapdragons that will fill in after the tulips.  I had found some rather nice plants at Lowe’s

Here’s a picture of Dekie helping with the planting. I’m still suffering mobility issues because of the cancer treatments. I don’t know what I would do without Sweetie and her wonderful helpful attitude.

I’m liking the way the overall garden is looking these days.  I plan to plant several colors of coneflower in the center of the bed for summer bloom and a few dahlias for fall.  We’ll see. It is a wonderful experiment, though.  I really don’t think I can mess up.

Do you have suggestions for a cutting garden? 

Progress report, I only have two more radiation treatments after today.  Yay for that.

Thanks for visiting Johntheplantman.

As usual, I would just love for you click here to go to Amazon and purchase the ebook edition of my wonderful book, Requiem for a Redneck to go on your Kindle. I have also noticed that Amazon now has a free Kindle app for iphones and tablets. Is that cool or what?
