from the forum: domestic flaps, winter shrubs
IPROMISED TO SELECT AND FEATURE THE BEST of the week’s posts from our Urgent Garden Question Forum, where membership (free!) and conversation (also free!) are really picking up. This week, however, and only Week 2 at that, I’m torn on which is my favorite. I find myself equally drawn to a hilarious question about living with non-gardening spouses as I am to one about great woody plants for winter interest in the shade. The week’s divergent winners in a tie:
Member Eblacroix asked the best gardening question ever: “Anyone have tips on how to deal with spouses who might not be as excited to start 50 gardening projects at one time like I do?”
Uh-oh. Got any advice to share?
Member Joyhockman wanted advice for shrubs that would be showy in winter in her shady garden, and beauties from Mahonia to Skimmia and many more have been offered up so far. What are your best recommendations to add to the growing list?
