I have decided to start a blog of the garden progress. There are so many details, and I know I’ll just forget them. Tonight I started posting questions on GardenWeb to begin the process of identifying plants which are new to me. Wow there are lots of invasive non-native species I need to control. Oh well, I guess I’m a non-native too…
Where to begin? Photograph, Identify, List, Uproot, Recycle. I’ll have to let Fairfax County do that last part, but thankfully they have some great resources here.
OK, here goes.
Lamium Purpureum, the Purple Dead Nettle (wikipedia)
Acer platanoides, the Norway Maple (wikipedia)
Hedera Helix, the English Ivy (wikipedia)
Vinca Minor, the Dwarf Periwinkle (wikipedia)
This list will grow…
