Below deck

This week I planted a tiny shade garden underneath my deck.  My parents dug out a huge hosta for me from their garden on Sunday and I split it up and replanted it as 5 separate plants here in the space outside my back door.  I did amend the soil first since this is very sticky red clay, then added a few other plants to help fill in until the hostas grow.  These get so big that I know at some point I will have to take most of them out.  I'm sure I will find someone to adopt them, and I'm happy to have a cute little garden instead of a pile of dirt and rocks.


Linking up to Outdoor Wednesday.  Have a nice day!

Love your hosta garden. I thought only the south was cursed with red clay! I have to amend the soil every time I plant a new area.
