On Thursday we planted a large garden at Sarah and Lucas’s. The boulevard on their street is quite wide, so we were able to put in plenty of plants (donated by the Bee Lab). We also scored a ton of mulch from Bratt Tree Company, which has a free mulch pile in the neighborhood (thanks, Bratt!).
The species for this garden are similar to our last few gardens, lots of things like New England aster, penstemon, butterfly weed, showy goldenrod, ox eye, June grass, and hoary vervain, all species that thrive in full sun. We’ll need to source some shade-loving plants soon for upcoming gardens in shady boulevards.
