Donald Privett has worked hard to create the garden of his dreams in SC.
"My garden is located in the Piedmont of North Central South Carolina. it is near the boundary between zone 7 and zone 8, it is very dry and hot in the summer hardly any rain and no relief from the humidity.
I have been gardening at this location for about 18 years it was a mass of weathered granite, with hardly any topsoil. I started adding peat moss, potting soil and anything else I could get – leaves that had decomposed and materials I composted. My idea was to create a spiritual garden where I could I have my coffee and anyone else could walk through this garden and enjoy it. I have two serenity seating areas where I'm surrounded by plants."
