Linda Nulle's corner garden on Wicker Street was chosen for the month of August.
The beds are edged by flagstones saved from an old fireplace. Inside the beds are colorful perennials, annuals and lots of garden art. A pretty blue bench is flanked by a birdbath, potted plants and more perennials. At the curb passers-by can use the Little Free Library.
Behind the house you will see a nice deck (where the cat likes to sit) and a narrow shade garden with more garden art collected from garage sales.
The garden was started by Linda some 30 years ago, with a flowering plum tree and one bleeding heart....it has come a long way!
The Woodstock Garden Club selected the garden of Kristine and Daniel James on E. Calhoun as the Garden of the Month.
This lovely (mostly) shade garden has evolved over 30 years and garden beds now cover most of the property with hostas, ferns, and other shade perennials.
They have “his and her" beds so each can design, plant and maintain their own visions without having to consult with each other. Daniel created his Moon Garden bed (all plants have 'Moon' in their names) and White Garden bed (all plants have 'White' in their names), while Kristine designed the front garden and the large island bed behind the house.
The Garden of the Month committee selected the garden of Lou Ness on West Jackson street as the first Garden of the Month for 2019. This delightful garden covers two lots and features a small greenhouse, a garden shed retreat and a Little Library where passers by can enjoy a book.
The small shed is constructed with parts of the 1858 house and stockade fence that once occupied the second lot. Lou starts plants from seeds in her little greenhouse and grows raspberries and strawberries.
Lou has been working on the garden for 27 years and her ultimate goal is to replace all grassy areas with garden beds.
