(The blueberry bushes are not planted in this pic, we just placed them here to figure out spacing).
Later that afternoon I went back to the nursery with measurements and a picture of the space and sat down with one of the gals who worked there. I told her that I was a novice, knew nothing about plants, I wanted things that were super low maintenance, and would look pretty. She picked out everything for me, I paid the nice lady and went home feeling pretty darn good about myself.
I know it doesn't look like much, be we are immensely proud of ourselves! I bought an evergreen, hydrangeas, and thyme. (She told me to plant bulps in the fall...ok lady, I don't know what bulbs are, but I'll come back in the fall and get some to plant). I can't wait to see everything once it's grown and in bloom. I'm totally inspired to learn more about gardening; there is really a satisfaction of planting something and watching it grow. I'm just praying everything stays alive. Oh, and my dog decided our blueberry bushes were the perfect thing in our back yard to pee on. Lovely. Do you garden? Any tips for me?
