Maine Farms Day was just this last weekend... many large perennial
growers/sellers held open house.
If you are wondering what you'd LIKE to plant, visiting the growers with
demonstration gardens is the thing to do this time of year. Get to see
plants in their relationships at the height of the growing season.
It gives you a whole different perspective when you see mixed gardens in a
mature state. You can also take notes of things you WANT to plant
TOGETHER and things you wouldn't want to give garden room.
If you want a marvelous day trip, Fieldstone Gardens in Vassalboro Maine is
top notch. ( usual disclaimer, not affiliated but satisfied customer).

| This is my first year planting perennials. I'd greatly appreciate some
| about what I should consider planting this fall.
| In particular I need to find out what stuff, besides tulips and daffodils
| has to be planted in the fall in order to bloom the next year. Bulbs?
| seeds? potted nursery plants? All suggestions welcome!
