I've just about finished planting the new middle bed, and now need to get some dg to gussy up the paths, and better blend the old bed with the new.
I had to add a few pops of color, all the california gold looks so drab to me. I keep reminding myself as the plants get larger and fill in -it will change. Added Aloe helenae from The Dry Garden Nursery and a Cephalocereus senilis x leuchocephalus from Poot's Cactus & Nursery.
I moved some Pilocereus azuerus to the more protected princess bed by the kitchen window. They were too much work to keep protected in the middle bed, and they still ended up with rot. I covered them with double frost cloth tent whenever it dipped below 38. Enough is enough! hahahaha.
