I need to keep the wild morning glory along the hedge in check and also the dandilions.
At the moment I am cleaning up the blue bells along the side of the pond that borders the neighbors. I pulled off the foliage and blooms and covered it all with several thicknesses of newspaper. I will be covering this with the cedar mulch I have in reserve, from years ago. I have moved an old bottomless cedar trough into this area and am trying to fill it with some of the excess garden soil. I plan to put my new big blue hosta into this trough. I hope the blue bells do not grow through all the barriers. I will be putting leaves on them in the Autumn also to help slow them down a bit. I will be putting the pendula willow into the new tall pot. I plan to have the bottom of this pot contain water where the roots of the willow can happily dip and sip, out of its long tall pot, that is raised to be level with the top of the decorative tall pot. The willow looks rather shabby compared to the pot. I do hope it improves over time. The other willow that I planted by the pond edge last Autumn, with its roots in the water is looking so very much better in this situation. Pictures later after the plants are in place.
