Multiple gardens created by Dorothy Bailey offer endless seasonal interest.

"Four years ago I moved into a house on a half wooded lot in Newark, Delaware. I have created a shade garden, a miniature garden, a sun perennial garden, vegetable garden and most recently we have expanded into the woods to create a woodland garden (no need to mulch!) . The woodland and shade gardens are my favorite and at their best in April and May when hellebores, Virginia bluebells, bloodroot, trout lilies, trilliums, and numerous bulbs announce the arrival of spring!"
