It’s the end of June, 2018 and due to more Cold here in Canada, we can start growing our plants little late than hot countries.
I wanted to take a little time and give you a tour of my ‘Backyard Garden‘.
Some Pictures from my Backyard Garden 2018
What’s growing on in the garden in June 2018?
This year, most of the Part is Perennial Shrubs and only few annual plants are there in my Backyard Garden, because Perennials come back each year.
Why to Grow Perennials?
- They Offer an enormous Variety of Colors, texture and form
- They save your time and Money, because most of them they come back each year with more growth and big roots, so this way you not only save your time, but also save money by planting these hassle-free plants
- Most beautiful perennial flowers are perfect for any Garden—either small or big and either front Garden or Backyard Garden
- When these Plants establish, they need very little attention and give you a blossoming backyard, which can increase the Resale Value of your Home.
Which Herbs do I have in my Backyard Garden in 2018?
- Onion Chives
- Two kinds of Basil
- Green Chili
- Methi Leaves
- Mustard Leaves
- Chickpea Leaves
- Watermelon Wines
While the idea of growing your own fruits and vegetables include some Shrubs in your own Backyard is extremely beneficial.
