After a couple of cooler days and some frost it is warming back up again and it is beautiful out today.
In the garden things are growing in leaps and bounds now and I am one thrilled gardener.
The Bleeding Hearts are really in a hurry this spring and are blooming before the plants have even had a good start at growing.
It likes rich, loose soil that is evenly moist but also well-drained. Plants will not grow well in heavy clay soils.
Partial Sun to Full Shade
Good for naturalizing. Some of the most beloved of all plants.
Leaf Spot. Heavy wet soils may cause root rot.
Good Companion Plants:
Astilbe, Coral Bells, Foamflower, Forget-Me-Not, Hosta, Lamium, Lungwort, Woodland Phlox, Spiderwort
Dicentra spectabilis “Alba” Bleeding Heart
The Grape Hyacinths are blooming now too that are planted under a tree along with some “Burgundy Glow” Ajuga. It is shady here under the big old Sugar Maple tree but the Grape Hyacinths bloom before the leaves get grown in the spring. This is also where the Elves live but they have not arrived and unpacked yet for the summer.
Time to get all the garden décor out of the shed I think.
