Advice from the Owner

This is a year 2 garden. They plants have easily tripled in size and are just beginning to bloom. We have seen several bees and hummingbirds coming to see if the flowers have opened yet. You need to be patient! Several neighbors have already stopped to ask us about it, and the neighbors across the street put in a small one last fall.
