First new additions for the 2010 garden went in this weekend, which were 4 Knock Out Roses 'Radrazz'. There are in the front bed and were put in with One Step Plant Starter. These soils are really bad, with lots of sand over an old road bed. I tilled in compost last year and added 4 inches of bark compost. To my amazement, the bark in less than 1 year had rotted down to less than an inch thick. But the soils looked so much better than when I stated, it was amazing. My shoved easily penetrated both the soil and the gravel of the old road bed, which last year was like rock.
