Went to the Saratoga County Fairgrounds this morning to pick up the seedlings I ordered a few weeks back: 10 red osier dogwood, 10 common lilacs, and 10 blue spruce. The red osier dogwood I planted this afternoon on the l&s slope. (Also on the slope I moved some Rosa rugosa so that it now forms a cohesive drift, and I divided and transplanted a bunch of Rudbeckia “Goldsturm,” which is settling in next to the catmint I planted last fall. Finally, I cleared out a place for the three Microbiota decussata, who are finally in residence.)
The lilacs I will plant in the lilac thicket, and I’m putting the spruce seedlings on the hill near the balsam firs we planted two years ago.
I’ll be busy tomorrow morning!
