Hi ho, hi ho…

Today i finished installing a raised bed for my winter/shade garden at the rear of our building. I converted a good portion of the alleyway into a terrace a couple of years ago – and its furthest end remains fairly damp, as evidenced by the moss that grows liberally across the concrete surface.

The only plants I’ve been able to grow in this area are ferns and pachysandra – though my neighbors in the rear of the building have been able to enjoy considerably more.

I plan to put the hostas and hydrangeas from the tree pit in this new area, to give them a break from the dog traffic and not-ideal watering conditions they’ve had to survive out front.

I’ll let you know how they make out!
