Oh happy day! After ten years or more of effort every spring, my foxgloves finally look like those in the pictures of English gardens. I suppose it helps that we have had an English-like spring this year. Some of them are five feet tall.
I looked back at some pictures of this area of my garden before we had the pine trees removed.
. What a difference adequate sun, water, and nutrition makes in the life of plants. If your pine trees or other large trees keep your garden from flourishing, consider having them cut.
