Did a bunch this morning: 5L 3C 6R
New Front Garden 17 4675.jpg

On the left side a small 'Alan Titchmarsh' (no good photo) and a really old (and tiny - it was in a pot with little sun) unnamed S&S sport.
Along the back edge of the left side - "Matthew's Fine Edge" (a Roger Smith seedling that I named) and "Miss Miranda" (an Art Wrede seedling that I named).
That's 'Austin Dickinson' up front.
New Front Garden MFE & Miss M 17 4669.jpg

Continuing along the back left edge - 'Restless Sea' and "Romulus" (a Sum and Substance sport I found).
That's 'Emily Dickinson' up front and "The Pot" to the right. (You still see some things in pots.)

I added two pieces of 'Jennifer Bailey' to the pot that already had 'Scooter' in it. The plant I think is 'Electrum Stater' was planted center-right.
That's 'Red Cloud' to the right on the pot and "Romulus" on the back edge.

On the right side of the garden along the back edge - 'Lady Isobel Barnett' with 'Ben Vernooij' center and 'Jezebel' up front right side.
That's 'Designer Genes' on the back edge right side.

Set a few more plants today - not much space left: 4L 1C 2R
On the left side 'Don Quixote', 'David L. Reath' (I was going to use 'Don Stevens' here but changed my mind), and "Miss Angela Danielle" (an Art Wrede seedling of Miss Angie).
I also added another 'Alan Titchmarsh' - the first one is too small and may not make it so I put this new one next to it.
The "new" 'Alan Titchmarch' is in the center of the frame with 'Don Quixote' left and up of AT and 'David L. Reath' to the right of AT with "Miss Angela Danielle" to the right of DLR.

In the center 'Bobbie Sue' was set just to the left and up of the Pot.

On the right side 'My Marianne' and 'Giantland First Scoop' were set.
The 'My Marianne' is just behind the 'Fragrant Blue' in the front row with 'Giantland First Scoop' just to the right of MM.

I added a piece of 'Bogie and Bacall' from one of my troughs.
It's on the back edge which may be a problem when things fill in.
That's "Romulus" on the left with 'Restless Sea' above and "Miss Miranda" on the right.

Some plants are starting to put up new leaves:
'Patricia the Stripper'

"Stephanie in Moonlight"
New Front Garden Steff in Moonlight 17 4924.jpg

And a 'Sum and Substance' sport I have had around for years but never gave it a chance to grow
New Front Garden S&S sport 17 4922.jpg

This is the same plant I posted many years ago. I took it out of the garden and potted it because it wasn't doing very well.
Then I put the pot in a shady spot and the plant has limped along since then - now we will see what it looks like.
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=53164&hilit=substance#p464094
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=51626

It still has light streaks - here is a close-up of the last photo.

I have added a few more the last couple of days.

'Baby Kim' and 'Anne Arett' were added to the Pot. 'Anne Arett' is out the right side and 'Baby Kim' is in back. When I dug 'Anne Arett' out of my garden and it came out in three pieces - two went into the Pot and one was planted in front of the Pot next to 'Emily Dickinson'.
That's 'Scooter' looking very big coming out of the front of the Pot.
In the top left corner I'm going to add some small plants just pasted that small light - that area has a sprinkler head in it that the light is warning me about so I don't do any hard digging there.

Ginko Graig and Mighy Mouse were added in that "corner" along the back boarder.
When I dug up the Mighy Mouse it came out in pieces.

Continuing with the New Front Garden:
A streaked piece, that I took from Francee, survived the ordeal. It has put up two new sprouts that are also streaked. I am adding that to the garden with the garden name "Francien" - I wanted a "Fancy" name for 'Francee'. Took me a while to come up with that after playing many other similar names - some others were Francine, Franceena, and Franceen.
Francien 17 5150.jpg

Francien 17 5151.jpg

And set in the garden on the right side roughly between 'Jezebel' and 'The Razor's Edge'.

That's 'Branching Out' on the right with all those flowers.

Added a few more today: 2L 3C 2R

I decided to finish the Pot with a piece my Gravel Weedling "Xiangliu" since it put up a huge number of scapes from a small plant. I also wanted to have multiple pieces of the plant in case the voles get into it. As it turned out I as was able to put a good sized piece in the top of the Pot and have a good size single piece to go in a pot - it had 4 scapes on it. I also had a tiny piece that I simply planted in the garden next to the Pot on the right side. I also added a couple of little pieces of Might Mouse between 'Emily Dickinson' and the Pot base - they were in an old pot so I thought I would give them a chance to grow.
New Garden Pot Xiangliu 17 5159.jpg

I also added a piece of 'Elbridge Gerry' to the back row on the right - keeping with the "Name" theme.
It's behind 'Designer Genes'. The pot near it is 'James A. Garfield' - I was thinking about using it but probably won't, enough big green already.
New Garden Elbridge Gerry 17 5161.jpg

Again keeping with the "Name" theme, I added 'Pure Heart' - Mighty Mouse's girlfriend Pearl Pureheart. Didn't get a picture.

I also added a cople of 'species' plants. These have been in pots for years and I wanted to give them a chance to grow in a better environment. Both were planted in the back row.

First is nigrescens - behind 'Lady Isobel Barnett'.
New Garden nigrescens 17 5160.jpg

The second is pycnophylla that has never flowered for me - maybe with more sun I will see some flowers.
It's on the left here as I was planting it. It had one huge root that I was sinking also.

Some other photos:
'Pure Heart' next to 'Wings of a Prayer' - it's very tiny, not enough sun and some kind of root competition.

pycnophylla planted

Almost done:

I think I'm done. Added 4 plants today: 1L 1C 2R

I took a piece of Dax and added it to the front row right side.
New Garden Dax 17 5288.jpg

I dug out a piece of my "weedling" 'Bri-Sun' and added it on the right side in the middle row. I wanted to split the main plant to keep the voles from killing it. I also ended up with 2 small pieces in pots.
New Garden Bri-Sun 17 5287.jpg

A small piece of Cordelia was added to the front row. It wasn't growing well where it was so this move will give it a better chance. It's hard to find in the photo because it's only one leaf to the right of "Wings of a Prayer'.
New Garden Cordelia 17 5309.jpg

The last is an unnamed seedling of Miss Angie (from Art Wrede's work). It's set behind the Pot. It may have problems with "Romulus" when it gets bigger. I also wanted to keep an eye on it because it can produce streaked sports. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=57978&p=502756&hilit=avery#p502756
