Location, location

Well, I figure if I'm really going to write about our Wildscape, then I'd better be honest and share our failures as well.

Alas, one of our two gold columbines in the back yard recently bit the dust. Fast! The other one's not doing too great either, but it's alive. Two more gold columbines in the front yard are struggling, too. But then the red and gold columbines planted in the bed that I can see from my windows are doing GREAT.

The story's similar for the black-eyed susans we planted earlier this summer (they were transplants given to us by our neighbors, the Crofts). The susans in the back yard are flourishing. The ones I planted in the front yard are stunted and barely growing.

Lesson learned: location is the key when it comes to successful gardening. But that comes from trial and error!

I couldn't agree with you more!

My Columbines are doing the exact same thing one by one. I'm not sure what's causing it.
