New Flower Bed 4

Got some plants  that I started from seed this spring added to the bed.  I enjoy starting plants about as much as anything in gardening, and a lot more than a couple of things..  In went a dozen foxgloves (Foxy), and a couple of dozen dahlia coccinea.  It was breezy, so the foxgloves are all lying on their side now, but they’ll perk up someday soon.  The dahlias were tougher.

The big project was putting black edging around the bed, which I should have done before I started putting plants in, but I put it off because it’s just not a fun job, (unlike starting new plants).

First, a trench

Then unroll the edging.

Black plastic is not the world’s best-looking edging, but I think with time, grass will come up to and hide most of it.
