Hi! I live in Florence, SC and have had my own garden for only about six years. My yard had to be started from scratch, as we moved a house to a cleared lot that apparently had been the dump site for a farm family (lots of broken glass, old shoes, and beer cans, lol).
Many of my plants come from extras in my parents’ garden and plants rescued from old home sites (the kind where all that’s left is the chimney standing in a field of overgrown weeds). I also wintersowed for two years (missed this past year unfortunately). I can’t resist new plants and have to really control myself at garden centers. We have a large area behind our house (about a half an acre) that we just had cleared of tons of old grape vines, chinaberry trees, wild cherry, and wisteria, leaving just the large trees. We finally fenced that last spring and are beginning to do some landscaping. Someday it will be beautiful. We installed the front picket fence and arbor this spring.
I live in: United States
My zone is: Z8 Florence, SC
