Member since: Jul 11 | Last seen: Nov 13

I started gardening nine years ago. Way back then, my garden was planted with annuals and perennials. It evolved thru the years that now I only have a few perennials and maybe one or two annuals growing in my garden. I have a small collection of hostas, about 100 plus varieties, lilies (the genus Lilium) and irises. In addition, I love geophytes and I have about 4 dozen pots that I overwinter in my basement.
