We are continuing to make progress here at the TJ Demo Garden. Plants are beginning to fill the new beds slowly but surely. This past week we planted wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), southernwood (Artemisia abrotanum), marshmallow (Althaea officinalis), tansy (Tanacetum vulgare), nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus), beargrass (Yucca filamentosa), and Jerusalem artichokes (Helianthus tuberosus)!
In addition to all of the planting, we started to mulch the pathways, giving the garden a cleaner look overall and suppressing the many weeds that are springing up everywhere!
How are you coping with planting fever? Tell us what you have been planting in your own garden below!
Stay tuned for an introduction to the exciting new “mini-arboretum” that was recently created adjacent to the TJ Demo Garden (directly behind the greenhouse in the above photo).
