Do you grow herbs? I do. I love being able to walk out on my porch and cut fresh herbs for my recipes. The more I cook, the more herbs I grow. And I always have some of these Herb Butters in the refrigerator! These are my current collection: basil, mint, cilantro and parsley …

Stunning Shade Garden Design Ideas: Utilize Groundcovers - Take advantage of low-growing groundcovers that crowd out weeds to make your shade garden easier to maintain. As an added bonus, many varieties provide an attractive carpet of color (such as this golden creeping Jenny, which practically glows underneath a planting of blue hostas, purple coleus, and black mondo grass).

Shade plants - Back Yard Hostas Native to eastern Asia, hosta came to the United States in the 1800s. Hostas are prized in the shade garden for their large leaves in different shapes and colors of green, deep blue or creamy variegated. Plants are categorized by common characteristics (species) and cultivated varieties (cultivars). According to the American Hosta Society, there are hundreds of hosta species and thousands of cultivars.

Keep mums coming by watering and pinching. Soil should be moist, but never wet. Check daily while weather is warm, every other day when it’s cooler. Fertilizing is not necessary. Remove faded blooms to encourage even more buds to open and you’ll have color through October. If plants dry out, submerge in a bucket of water, or jab a sharp pencil into the soil several times and then water.

A Colorful Fall Dream Garden of Different Flowers- great tips for growing fall mums here -- or for trying to keep them from an early death??!!
Tips for colorful, cool season, fall flowering perennial mums: Choose ‘hardy’ type, not florist. Purchase them in budding stage. Give as much sun as possible. Generously water blooming mums. Remove faded blooms (dead-head). Plant in the ground 4-6 weeks before the first frost in your area if desired. Winter over with the dead branches intact. Pinch back new growth until mid July.
My Favorite Shady Ground Cover -- If you have a shady or partial shady spot, and you want to fill it in quickly (within 8 weeks), then you will like Lamium Beacon Silver or "dead nettle." Don't buy flats...find someone who has it (me!) and take cuttings. You can just stick a stem or even part of a leaf in the ground, and it takes root and fills in rapidly! It flowers from April to October...I love my patches of it!

Island Breeze Hosta (Hosta Island Breeze) at Wayside Gardens
Lavender Flowers, Woodland Gardens, Purple Flowers, Breeze Hosta, Loss Gardens, Hosta Islands, Beautiful Varieg, Cut Flowers, Islands Breeze
Beautiful variegated foliage on a well-behaved mound just 12 inches tall. Island Breeze Hosta
Hosta 'Island Breeze'- features golden, variegated, subtly-ridged foliage with stronger variegation, thicker leaf substance, and a faster growth rate than its predecessors. Small purple flowers attract butterflies. 'Island Breeze' is easy to care for, being resistant to heat, humidity, and a whole host of other conditions. The thicker foliage is harder for slugs to eat, however, it is not quite slug proof. Plant in at least ¼ sun to bring out the gold hues in the foliage. Zones 3-9.
Hosta 'Island Breeze' Dark green margins with bright yellow centers in early spring. Blooms: Dark lavender flowers in midsummer. Exposure: Morning sun to shade. Soil: Hummus rich; moist but well drained. Partner up your hostas with a shady perennial like Astilbe or shady annuals like Coleus, New Guinnea Impatiens, and Torenia (etc) to throw a pop of color against the foliage. #eckertsgreenhouseMI #perennials #2014 #hosta #islandbreeze
Island Breeze Hosta: A sport of 'Paradise Island', this Hosta features the same golden, variegated, subtly-ridged foliage as its parent and adds a few improvements: stronger variegation, thicker leaf substance, and a faster growth rate. 'Paradise Island' is a brilliant choice for any shady spot. It will brighten up the shady border or woodland garden, it is small enough for the container, and the foliage is so phenomenal that is even a great specimen or cut flower.
