My plan right now is to keep it in a large pot. If it gets too big for the pot before we move next year, I'll give it to a family member :lol: I'm not leaving it here!

I saw it and just had to have it :wub:

Somehow I missed this!

It looks like a Stargazer relative. Should be super fragrant. Oh yeah, you'll want to keep this in the pot. These Oriental hybrids are hard to keep track of in the garden. It will be fine in a pot for quite a while.

I am so tempted to get some more lilies. I just need someone to help me prepare the garden. I'm not strong enough to dig very deep into our clay yard so it takes me forever to plant something.

April. Here's a trick for breaking up the soil. It takes pre-planning and a little time, but well worth it in the end.

Whenever I plan a new garden, I begin dumping the rabbit manure there. This works best during winter. I spread it around so it's several inches thick. By the time spring comes, the cover of manure has killed off the grass, and the worms have been working on it. The soil is much easier to dig.

I also don't always dig up the entire area if it's for perennials (which it usually is). I just dig where a plant will go.

I've got sand, clay, and rock here. I can't dig anywhere without hitting a stone. I'm not strong enough to dig this with a regular shovel while standing. My most valuable garden tool is a big 18" flathead screwdriver. I get down on my knees and loosen the dirt and stones with the driver and then scoop it out with the shovel.
