Sometimes when you are at the nursery or garden center, you get all caught up in the emotion of the moment. Okay, well I do but I am weird like that. Some girls like jewelry, I like plants.
Well these black eyed susans were not exactly what I wanted in this perennial border. Don’t get me wrong, they are pretty, but too big, kind of like the ugly step-sister compared to
But like every flower, they could be beautiful in the right place. So I decided to move them from their current home to a spot where they would be the star.
They are moving to a dead spot in the yard, next to the greenhouse. their height would be a help to provide some privacy from the neighbors and they will have room to spread.
A side note: every gardening problem usually has a solution. If you don’t like a plant where it is, move it. If a plant is not doing well, yank it out and put it in a different spot. Your flowers will thank you for it.
