They are ready to vacate their pots and find a new home in the parkway rain garden, although this will have to wait till next spring after I am done with the rain garden preparations. If we get the promised mild winter, I may even get some preparations done this year.
And the sedges will have company! Late this summer we divided a whole lot of wild geraniums at one of my clients’ rain gardens.
We ended up with so many extra rhizomes that I took a bunch home and potted them. Some of them were in a hurry to put on some growth and developed leaves.
I also needed to cage them because the squirrels kept digging them up to take a nibble. After replanting some of the unearthed rhizomes for the third time, I prescribed protective custody, thus the wire mesh.
I now can dedicate some thought to what other companion species I would like to include in the rain garden, to keep it functional and with seasonal interest.
