winter losses on new plants

2 months ago

summarizing my winter losses on a few bought last year.
1) two banana plants planted last july havent returned. They were doing well last year, now no signs. They were transplanted from another local garden, so they must have acclamatized in portland. two more were in pots have returned in spring .. so strange.
2) managed to kill my first fern, bought from hardy plant sale in sept. planted in ground in rather wet and soggy spot. i had assumed they can take boggy spots.
3) veronica whitewater, it just did not like the spot, I should have listened:(
i am told ground water in our neighborhood has risen. I need to spend $ for another french drain. gardening problems never end . on plus side, older plants have done well.
thanks for reading.
