Trough Planting Day

I planted a couple of my troughs for the lovely folks at the Laurelwood Arboretum in Wayne, NJ today, during their plant sale.  The first one, above, was done in front of about 20 people.  I demonstrated how to make a lean scree mix, place rocks, bare-root the plants, and make a mini painting in a trough.

I did the second one later on, as the plant sale was winding down.

Once I got home, and refueled with espresso, it was off to my friends' house to plant this lovely trough for full sun.  After risotto, short ribs, and ramps with them (thanks, Collin), I'm ready for bed.

I've got a fourth trough to plant tomorrow for myself.
