Garden Seat, Transplanting tis the season!

We have talked about moving the crowded Rhododendrons they had a lot of space when they were small. We have replanted 8 so far and the new bed will soon be full. 

There other plants in pots that need their own space so it will be busy time for a good while...

Mixing in peat with garden soil use 4 parts soil 1 part compost 
and a couple of shovels of worm castings per plant
Several plants no room
Rolling new bed
Narley bed
getting closer
Narley bed done, room to grow
Coming along
Some tools


  1. I can see why this is such a big job - that is a lot of bed making and digging and replanting. Sure looks good though. Can you post some pictures of the 'whole' yard from different angles when you get your projects the way you want them? Hope you got lots of seaweed and found some more logs.

  2. looking good! I love gardening. What are the worms you mentioned?

  3. Man, this makes me feel behind. We're building, and sooo close to moving in, but not quite there. Our neighbors were kind enough to till me up a space for my garden, but I just haven't gotten over there to do any planting yet. Whoops!

  4. So glad to see your garden linked up at Show & Tell today. I love gardening and plants and flowers...just can't get enough of it this time of year.

  7. Welcome spring!! We have been turning our garden beds too. Or early veggies are in but a little to soon to plant flowers just yet. But I am ready! Hugs

  8. It's look wonderful,
    i love Rhododendrons!

  9. Yard work is hard work, but I truly enjoy it. Looks like you will have a nice one to enjoy.

  10. Your soil looks nothing like mine, which is southern red clay! Hard to dig, especially if it hasn't rained for a while!

  11. So lovely!

  16. Hi Rob!

    The nice thing about Rhodies is that they have such a shallow root ball and the move well. They look almost ready to bloom so please take more pictures when that happens as I know it will be beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing this at my party this week!
