• Heuchera in June

(Revised 6 Jan 2016)

Winter is so far away that it is forgotten. All the garden digging chores are coming to an end. Time to enjoy the garden to the full.
Unfortunately, in our area, mother nature has a tendency to skip spring and go straight to summer. In situation like that, the best we can hope for is, that is not accompanied by a drought. It is most frustrating to watch precious plants that you have been waiting for a year to wilt hopelessly in front of you.
