After the hard-freeze and watching “Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf” I decided this would be the year I’d try taking everything down to the ground. Normally, I hem and haw, and cut back the bare minimum.
But this year? I used the string trimmer, lawn mower, and hedge trimmer to take most of it to the ground.
And a couple days later it’s all coming back.
Including Rattlesnake Master!
I’m hoping we’ll get another bloom this year.
