The *NEW* Astilbe Area

Last weekend I cleared an area for my Bluestone Perennial order.  It's mostly Astilbe and Ferns to go on the shady side of the house (part sun, only in the afternoons).  Today the plants arrived!  Yipee!

Yesterday we got a lot of rain and we're predicted to get more in the next few days.  If I wanted to plant these guys before next weekend (10 days out) it had to be today.  It's a good thing our soil is loose and sandy.  Planting in damp soil is not a good idea and if it was damp clay it would be impossible!

Here's the after.  See all my nice little plants?

Now I just have to break it to the husband that I'm not ready to put in the Asters yet - that's another area that needs to be prepped!
