I love the idea of soaking the root ball in the bucket of water. Very SMART indeed… Thanks for sharing…

My dad uses a similar idea. He digs the holes for planting, fills them with water and lets that sit for a bit before planting. He also puts the plants in a barrel or something full of water before planting. The roots are free and moist.

I will try that next time. I planted some new lavender too in my front this summer. Even though we had a mild winter in Michigan most of my existing lavendar did not survive the harsh spring we had. Love the red shoes! I want some red crocs for the garden now or maybe toms. I’m always in flip flops in the garden and ruining my pedicure. Hmmm.

Seems like one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” things :)

I need some info on lavender grooming, I’m slowly growing a field of it! I put it everywhere, it smells gorgeous and right now, it sounds amazing too, with all the bees and butterflies flying around!

I love her red scrunchie/shirt/watch/shoes mojo. I’m hoping I have that kind of mojo in 40 years. (:
