I took over this garden in 2008. It is maybe 5’ long and 1.5’ wide with the drip line running down the middle of the bed and as with all the beds against the house there is about 6" of dry earth along the house wall. The path bordering it is the main path to the family’s house so lots of traffic including wheels of various kinds.
The bed faces SSW, there is a big maple nearby which blocks the sun but does not provide direct shade as a result the bed gets a blast of mid to late afternoon sun in summer.
In Spring this is the first bed to lose snow and is full of crocuses.
