Re-working the front garden

The front garden of our place has gotten a little overun. There’s some great plants in there – but it tends to have been a place I plant things to get them established – so it has turned into a bit of a mish-mash. I decided to tidy it up a little.

A New Agave Garden

As I’ve been getting more experienced with growing plants – I’ve been a little haphazard. I’ve been focusing more on keeping things alive and growing than how they are arranged or landscaped.

I finally bit the bullet – and decided to try my hand at a little bit of landscaping.

Plant Status: October 2020

I’m figuring it might be helpful to take some update photos regularly of the state of the Gardens/Plants so I can keep track of them. Consider this the first entry…

Turns out I don’t mind looking after plants…

12 months ago I never would have expected to have as many plants as I do. The only thing they seemed to be good for was accidentally neglecting them till they withered and died.

Fast forward to now – and it turns out I kind of like them. Our house and garden are fillling up – and doesn’t look lilke it will stop. If I go more than a week or so without something new or interesting to grow, I start to get a little edgy.

So how did this happen? (Trust me – this is a question I’m asking myself)
