I know I haven't done any posts on gardening but I'd rather blab about gardening more than anything. I love it. I am obsessed with it. I wish I could garden all year round. Since we have had an early spring I'm getting my hands dirty a lot earlier than usual.
I've been to Lowe's and Home Depot no less than 3 times this week scoping everything out and planning my raid. Well it paid off because I scored big time today at Home Depot. They have ground covers on sale for $.99 for 1 liter pot. I bought two flats of Creeping Jenny for the side of my yard where I am working on a garden path. I needed something that would take some shade and brighten the place up.
Feast your eyes on these pics I found!
Here it is growing among hostas! Gorgeous!

It is described as a low-growing evergreen groundcover. Actually, a rampant groundcover. I've read some some bad things about it being too invasive but I've also read many wonderful things as well. I think it is all about planting it in the right location and being prepared for it to spread like crazy. I, myself like the word rampant when it comes to flowers. Ummm... it can spread 30 ft? It grows over everything in it's path? (gulp) That's okay to me.
Before you go out and buy this do your research. Don't buy it because it is a lush over-flowing sea of chartruese that spreads it's loveliness all over your garden path, followed by your rose bushes, then your grass, and whoops! then your neighbors grass... Buy it because you did your research and know it's the perfect vigorous plant for you.
Happy Gardening! Do you have any ground covers? Anyone have this lovely Creeping Jenny?
