Here it is, the first of May. Happy May Day! Do you have questions that you would like to throw out into the blogosphere for our highly intelligent and generous community of garden bloggers to mull over? If so, why not write a post about them and link here? I have never failed to find answers that way and you can too. I aim for a post like this at the beginning of every month. Sometimes life interferes, as it did in April…simply indicative of the loose non-rules for joining in.
Last year, I planted several Dahlias, with visions of sumptuous borders, beds and bouquets. These visions were foiled by gophers, excepting only the ones that were placed in this herb bed. I’m wondering if any of you have heard of this as a legitimate strategy. It could possibly have been a happy accident.
I know that the deer avoid beds populated by strongly scented and flavored herbs like Rosemary. Do you think the same thing is at work underground? I will be experimenting with adding more herbs to several beds. In the meantime, all of the lily bulbs went into large pots this year. Now: how about telling us what has been puzzling you of late?
