My confession that rules were blatantly disregarded when I planted shrubs during July brought sorrowful bent heads and looks of disapproval. And those were just from Gus the Wonder Cat…..
I can imagine what your thoughts on the subject might be.
As a designer, I often myself tempted to The Dark Side, putting FORM before FUNCTION. Someone always pays when that happens. Sometimes it’s Mrs. Skywalker. This time it’s me. I’ve been shlepping water hoses through the common area next to my house several times a week and the newly-planted beauty berry still doesn’t look, well, beautiful. If you don’t want you to fall into the same trap, use this graphic telling you when to plant what at your house. Your plants will thank you for following the rules. And Gus will think you’re a genius.
