My Garden in 2005 Blast from the Past.
Posted 31 March 2012 - 12:20 PM
Some of these plants are gone killed in big freeze of 2010, other were taken out for outgrowing there space. It was a garden tour so I planted lots of flowers.
South facing front yard.
I have quite a few bird houses.
Green cordyline to the left. Kill two years ago but has regrown since.

East side of house.
This area was redone last year.

This trachy is now 15" tall.
I miss that orangey fencing.
Several years later all the Gum trees were all cut down. Growing 9' per year was fun to watch. They gave lots of overhead winter protection.

Greenhouse looks so clean back then. And more sunny.
That's my Blast from the Past 2005.
Thanks for looking.

T. martianus is not hardy for me, only lives a few years and then dies in one of my z8 winters.
I replace the flax with cordylines, but still have some smaller ones around.

BS Man stop picking on me....or I will have to send this big guy to deal with you..... .....

Thanks everyone I have learn to use the right plants for the right climate. That doesn't mean I won't try something way out of my gardening zone but the bones have got to be hardy.
Sometimes I wonder what I could do if I lived in z10-11.
