I am beginning my first experience of starting new gardens from scratch in my new home in a new subdivision. We have hard-packed clay and have a deer trail that breaks at the back of our yard. My challenge is to design gardens using plants that will give me 4-season interest, incorporate as many native or unique plants as possible, and avoid becoming the neighborhood deer-candy store. I was formerly a professional horticulturalist and landscaper in Zone 9, now a passionate hobby gardener in Kansas (z5) which has got to have some of the most frustrating weather conditions to garden in! I am excited to have found this community and to share my new gardening adventures.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z5 KS

My favorite forum 1 is Midwest Gardening.

My favorite forum 2 is Wildlife Garden.
