Last autumn I treated myself to an adorable little Blue Star juniper (Juniperis squamata 'Blue Star'). I planted it in one of my many garden beds not fenced to keep deer at bay. I had such high hopes it would eventually grow into the 2-3 foot tall, 3-4 foot wide mound its tag promised, particularly because it had sharp, prickly needles that suggested it might live up to the 'deer resistant' label it was given.
Welcome to the first day of March 2013 – Gardening Oops (GOOPs) day here in Joene's Garden. On the first of each month I share a gardening faux pas hoping you can learn from my experience, and give you the chance to share a faux pas – or GOOPs - of your own. My March 1, 2013 tale is the result of three, seemingly unrelated, objects. When combined the three became a gardening oops.
