New garden project complete

   A few days ago I finished a new raised bed for small and mini hostas. It differs from the beds that I was making so far. There was no digging or removing grass. Anyway it was not really possible to dig at this spot. The bed is placed right next to the trunk of a maple tree that is growing on a rock. Even weeds were not growing there due to drying out by maple tree. There was very little soil full of fine maple roots. To protect the new hosta bed from maple root invasion I covered the ground with double cardboard sheets.

   To prevent the planting mix from falling between the rocks the bed was lined up with landscape fabric. It also should help to prevent tree root invasion together with the cardboard. Now the bed was ready for filling up.

   Filled with compost and ready for planting

   My latest acquisitions found their home. I'm looking forward to see this bed next spring.
