Spring Grove Ginkgos + Brookside Geraniums - One Month Later - June 2023
Back in mid-May, I replanted our two small, square beds on either side of our back stoop. I dug out the RJM Rhododendrons that were there since our first Summer and replaced them with a pairing of Brookside Geraniums and a witches broom, dwarf Ginkgo named Spring Grove. #13 on my 2023 to-do list was to 'fix the back stoop beds' and this swapping out was a big part of that need.
I also took a few plugs of Angelina Sedum from the north bed and transplanted it to the south bed, so they would be mirror-images of each other.
When I planted the Spring Grove Ginkgos, they has leaf'd out, but had suffered a litttle bit of late-frost damage to the tender leaves. The geraniums were small and just emerging, too.
A little bit over one month later, what do they look like? The geraniums have grown quite a bit. And, so too, have the Ginkgos. See below for (first) the north bed. And then, below that, the south bed.
