My gardens are farm gardens....nothing fancy: day lilies, hydrangea, and a sunflower or two. First rule is, if you grow here- you must be hardy. Second rule, the plants must learn to coexist with metal chairs, a milk can or two, and any other chippy, rusty item that may just decide to call a garden a home.
And pansies absolutely call this farm home. Anyone that attended the spring barn sale might just attest to that little fact.
So, how does your garden grow?
