    Are Echinacea similar to Lilly’s that you have to cut the heads off so the bulb gets more nutrients?

    Hi-Beautiful gardens.
    How do you keep Russian sage from flopping over? Ty

  6. Valkyrie Sardo on April 1, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    The inflection in your voice is very much like Jodie Foster. I have to wonder if you are both from the same region of the country.

  7. penny baker on April 1, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Really enjoyed your talk and seeing your garden. I got lots of ideas and can not wait to get stuck in. Hope you are safe and healthy.

    I have two potted Gaura plants, and one is surrounded with Purple Pansies, and the other is surrounded by Scarlet Pimpernel…..the Gaura is now starting to spike and I am hoping the Pansies keep flowing over! The Scarlet Pimpernel is not a typical garden plant, as it is so invasive, but it can be contained so nicely, and it has shallow roots! πŸ™‚ …I do Love my Whirling Butterflies!

  14. xstacy2 on April 1, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Where did you get the veggie beds.

    Beautiful garden & cat having so much fun… The whole Echinacea are medicinal plants as well, even the roots, but best to give them a few years b4 pulling them up… Dry them out, make tinctures & so much more, great for the immune system & so much more… Also, great in soups, salads & you can eat by themselves… Such an awesome video, thank you for caring & sharing all… 😘 πŸŒΉπŸŒˆπŸ’žπŸŽ΅πŸŒ·πŸŒΊπŸŒΈπŸ˜†πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’«πŸŒŸπŸ’› πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ ☘️

  18. Coastal Sunrise on April 1, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    What are you doing that the deers do not eat your plant?

  19. Estelita Martin on April 1, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Fabulous gaeden, wow

  20. Cenepk101 on April 1, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Only way I got rid of voles was my cat. By the way- They only eat the roots of your most expensive plants. Fabulous St John’s Wort and creeping thyme. Beautiful garden

  21. leslie tromski on April 1, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Love your yard. Such a great variety of beauty. I was also admiring all your great planters. I have had a hard time finding anything interesting. Did you have tips where to find anything other than the ordinary styles

  22. Cheryl Sovern on April 1, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Is creeping tyke a shade plant?

  23. Roro Hiker on April 1, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    You’re so lucky to have a big beautiful place to do all this and the money to do it. It’s wonderful to see

  24. Deana Collett on April 1, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Beautiful garden ❀️

  25. Jamie Paige on April 1, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    I simply love your show. You are an inspiration! Beautiful yard!!!

  26. Helen Jones on April 1, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    You are so right!!! And they are sooo beautiful!!! Our Florida sun is so hot but these are so tolerant! Thank you for your post!

  27. Becky Whittaker on April 1, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Moles are there to eat your grubs. I put the spread granules the killers the grubs. Moles have nothing to eat so they move on. You can get the stuff at Lowe’s or a farm supply store. It fixed my problem.

  28. Tina Blum on April 1, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Loved your tour! I recently bought 5 1/2 acres of land and you have given me sime great ideas..thanks so much! Keep the videos coming please…Thanks!

  39. Mopar Smith on April 1, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    At 15:28 I couldn’t quite get the name of that red plant. I tried to google it but couldn’t quite figure it out.

  40. Judy Middleswart on April 1, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Magnificent garden wow!! Wish I had your climate! I live in pensacola fl and so struggle if u have suggestions for a ground cover zone 8b/9 would love that .. I plant mulch compost but things just are hard here in our very humid summers .. SUGGESTIONS FOR PLANTS ARE SO WELCOME! Your yard is truly amazing !! Thanks Judy in northwest fl

  41. kepstein8888 on April 1, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    This is awesome. Can’t wait to convert my bland lawn into something like this, but smaller and not as nice. πŸ™‚

  42. Tina Ganguly on April 1, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Bought our first house and have been looking for yard/garden ideas. But the usual β€˜garden’ videos are just too shilala for me or about growing potatoes.. I prefer a English garden style and now I know what I have been looking for- like you mentioned cottage garden! Yes! Love from gorgeous Washington state. Subbed, like, save and rewatch just before a trip to Molbaks ( I prefer the nursery at Maltby but I am β€˜free way driving shy’. πŸ˜›)

  43. Special Teams on April 1, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    What is the β€œMaple” by the Hostas? Is that a shrub??

  44. SUUM on April 1, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Hi from Korea. Thank you for the clip ^^

  45. onetwocue on April 1, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    I used to live in long lake wa, still own my place though and I miss my garden. A lot of plants I planted that I can’t find anywhere at all. Not even online. Like I really miss my lankon lilies.

  46. Special Teams on April 1, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    What was the β€œPetcimen?” (Spelling???)

  47. Ellie teixeira on April 1, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Beautiful garden thank you love πŸ’• it God bless you…

  48. Creekwood Joe on April 2, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Great pleasant video. Can you show shade loving perennials for a North Florida screened porch that only gets sun from 300pm to dusk?
