Nice work, Rick! Not much grass to mow there! Amy, I am also lucky to have a small trickle in my garden, down in the wood, but slugs also like to forage there! I had problems with my first plants down there.
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
Sorry to take so long getting back here! Having a stream is the nicest feature of this small piece of heaven here in the foothills of the Green Mountains! I'm also on a small lake so the views are awesome. The stream really allows me to grow many of my favorite plants, the Primulas. But since I'm also in so much shade I have been working in many native woodlanders like the Diphylleia.
Hubbardton, VT, Zone 4
Love the George Newman garden!Diphylleia (forget which, seeds from a European gardener) is another thing I have some seeds sown of that did nothing last year.. hoping for this spring....
