An Early July Backyard Shade Garden Walk in Green Bay, WI


At last! Time to enjoy the fruits of our labor. It was a tough winter and spring here in NE Wisconsin but we made it through. Our plants are thriving in the cooler temperatures and plentiful rain showers. The gardens you see are 20 years in the making and are ever growing and changing...........UPDATE......Now, May 1, 2016 ........we are patiently waiting for spring to come (we are well below normal) . .

    What kind of plants can you plant under pine trees that will grow in Washington state eastside of the mountains.

      I'm in SE Washington and we grow hostas in our shady areas. There are pine trees nearby and they seem to do okay.
