I'm putting in my first garden, although I grew up gardening at home. I moved to Westchester County out of NYC and now have some land! My first project is a 60 foot perennial border in a raised, terraced bed. Since it will be fairly shady from some 60 ft oak trees I decided to concentrate on white flowering perennials with some saturated color accents. That and the several hundred bulbs I orderd from Scheepers! ( I'm putting in 200 pure white narcissi!) My favorites are old-fashioned, peonies, foxglove, lilies, anemonies, siberian iris. I don't know much about shrubs, but I'm lucky to have some huge, old rhododendrons and mountain laurel. I'm married, work in the city and have two kids, 6 and 3. I've already gotten a lot of useful information from this site and and can't wait to start asking some questions!

I live in: United States

My zone is: z5a NY
