The Meadow Garden


The Meadow Garden calls for broad swaths of colour. Fortunately, most of the plants for the meadow garden come up well from seed. Hence, I like to plant seed by collecting entire plants (dead) from this years growth to reseed a new area of the meadow. As these plants are mostly perenial, I cut the plants off above the ground after they've turned brown. I plant by placing the entire plant in the new area and allow the seeds to drop naturally. Previous soil cultivation brings a better result.
