Clematis and Fuzzy Dogs!

It is still too early and cold for most Clematis. If you see any for sale at the garden centers, most likely they have been forced in a greenhouse.

We stopped at Luscher Farms in Lake Oswego, Or. this week to check in on the Clematis Collection and see if anything was blooming yet.

The Clematis in the 'Atragene' group are in full bloom outside in the garden.
This variety is called 'Constance'. 
Hey, that's almost like my name, Constanza!
These Clematis actually need a cold winter and do well down to zone 3.
We love the way they have been trained into this spring blooming Viburnum.
The shrub provides the support for the vine and hides the woody part of the vine, which is never very attractive.

Plants are for sale on Fridays, 10 am-Noon. Also, there are plant sales on special weekends, check the link to the website.

In other news, we are getting Aire-Cuts this Friday. Nephew Murphy is getting his hair done too!
One last look at Fuzzy Dogs....
See you soon, all spiffy and sleek.

Wyatt's Week

Our tulips are tuliping.

I went plant shopping.

I'm planting a client's backyard for a graduation party.

The weather has been fantastic this week.
It's good to be a gardening dog.

Tips on Thursday!

Here is a little garden tip from Wyatt.
Do you have pesky birds, like crows or jays that like to gobble up your seeds and little sprouts?
Many springs, we have had our rows of peas 'Picked Clean' before they can even sprout!

Sprinkle a little bit of lawn clippings over your newly planted seeds.
I makes it difficult for the birds to see the new shoots.
This works great for corn and squash seeds too.

Snow Pea Pods
By the time the grass clippings turn brown, the sprouts will be up and established.
"Ha-Ha"  Mr. Crow, we faked you out this year!
