Showing Some Side

18 May, 2011 2 comments

The largest project this year was one that was started back in the winter when I layed down cardboard to kill the grass. Eventually all of the grass was killed and it was all mulched. This side includes many Colocasia’s, Caladium’s, banana’s, two Hydrangea’s, a Philodenron, Hosta’s, Ferns and a Japanese Maple that I was able to get at a Korger grocery store surprisingly. This picture was taken at the end of April and it has already filled in a bit and the Musa basjoo’s in their second year have shot up.

The tallest one you see in the last picture is the one in the first picture. It is already around 4 feet tall, so that is pretty exciting. Can’t wait to see how tall they get this year. Last year I believe it got to 13-14 feet by 07 November when it was frosted. You can see that some of them are starting to actually puch out leaves.
