Patriot Gardens

gardenFeel the sun on your face in your personal secret garden in Darling Harbour’s Chinese Garden of Friendship.

Extended time fans – I hope you will stick with me. I love you and am so satisfied you are a element of my life. We hope you will take pleasure in the journey as a lot as we do. We started our Exotic Garden in 2005 and this site will show its development, as effectively as our travels, both abroad and within the UK to gardens, nurseries and friends. Aphids , spider mites , slugs , snails , ants , birds , and even cats are commonly regarded as to be garden pests.

We have also spent a lot much more time over the final year travelling, in 2015 we spent time away from the UK ten instances, one thing of a record for us. The garden took a slight back seat to a shift in way of life though that did not avoid numerous projects and numerous plant purchasing escapades.

By the way, I love wildlife in my garden and 1 of my lenses (I have only two!) is dedicated to them.

With the help of a nearby landscaper, they created the garden to feel like a wild field and to consist of particular plants such as the Foxtail Agave, Firesticks, Dodonea, Sage, Aloe and other drought tolerant plants.

The pictures do not clearly show just how huge some of these had been but, trust me, they have me reconsidering the spacing of the a lot smaller specimens I have in my personal garden. The City needs to develop a neighborhood based social marketing system that incentivizes, encourages, and rewards citizens’ sustainable efforts. This is a checklist of just the plant species native to New York City I am growing in my garden. Yes, it has been more than a year because the City Code Enforcement told us to replace our vegetables with ground cover.
