Here it is, the garden of my dreams. A difficult garden for Arizona, even in the more temperate area where I live.
This is the garden bordering the path to my step-sister’s Upstate New York home.
Look at those happy flowers!! Look at all that lush GREEN!!!!!!
Her complaints are 1) Flowers so happy that they are taking over and need dividing, and 2) A huge infestation of Japanese Beetles dining on her roses. I would suffer with problem number one any day (she can keep number two though).
She doesn’t want to use pesticides on her lawn. Does anyone have any natural solutions for combating Japanese Beetles? I read somewhere that planting garlic keeps them away. My step-sister is of Italian descent and is a great cook, but I don’t think even she wants a lawn full of garlic!
Please share any ideas you may have. Thanks!
