Joe Koller brings us up to date with his special garden.

"The attached photos are an update on the Hospice garden we started last fall as well, as several other areas in my yard. I tried to incorporate a lot of suggestions from GPOD'ers in the Hospice Garden but quite a few were no shows.  I think it was a combination of a very wet May & in one case very poor quality plants from one of the online nurseries. I believe the Tree Hydrangea Limelight came threw well in this garden. The  gardens with the Heuchera & the Gentiana were started in July & I have high hopes for them next season. All things considered this was a really good gardening season in central Maryland. Judging from the posts on GPOD everyone had a good year. Good luck to all of you."
