I already know what theme I'm leaning toward: a fairy garden. So I need to round up some interesting stumps, ferns, hostas, and "fairy" plantings like little nodding bells and airy grasses. I'll be keeping my leaning climbing rose, William Baffin, giving it a good tie onto the trellis to keep it on track with climbing up the house. It's a challenge deciding what will grow in this little garden space, so I did a google and found a great resource from the University of Minnesota Extension Service, detailing all kinds of things you can plant to grow in difficult locations. Already I'm in love with the idea of planting snowdrops and cranesbill geraniums and purple fountain grass...
Now, if only I could plant it without having to do all that digging.
