Here’s our latest new garden construction at Juniper Level Botanic Garden. We’re clearing out an entire hedge of giant Nellie Stevens hollies behind the Open House sales greenhouses and replacing them with a more diverse and intricate planting. All of our beds are composed of a soil mix that we make: 50% native soil and 50% compost. It’s soil preparation like that makes plants grow so well and so insanely fast. It’s our goal to have this project completed by our next open house in February.
