My New High Concept Garden -- 'Sink Ye or Swim Ye'!
I have too much of a lot of stuff, the sort of thugs that look beautiful but they choke everything around them to death with their super-aggressive spreading. I'm talking yarrow, sun drops, bee balm, rudbeckia, certain irises, lamium, clustered bellflower, etc. You get the idea.
So I created a new garden, which I am calling the "Sink Ye or Swim Ye" garden. Yup, I'm doing nothing for these plants. They get dumped, and then they're on their own. I'm curious to see what will happen. Well, I already have seen some of what happens -- namely that yarrow and sundrops and monarda and rudbeckia barely notice the change and are growing just fine in this lousy unamended soil which I never water (except when I first planted), never fertilize, nope, nuthin. Hey, I LIKE this kind of gardening!
So now I'm saving my beds for the more delicate flowers, and the thugs have their own playpen.
Do y'all do this already and I'm just behind the curve?
