Plant Combination Less is More

Open border plan This border is very simple but effective. The black bamboo increases slowly to form a dramatic backdrop without becoming too invasive. The yellow-green flowering wood spurge will spread in front and across the bamboo stems while sandwiched in between,the Japanese windflower generously produces masses of long lasting white flowers.
Planting tips: After flowering remove the faded flower-heads of the spurge,but always wear gloves when working with them as the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant. They are also prolific self seeders,so remove unwanted seedlings each spring as part of routine Maintenance. Keep the flowering stems of the Japanese windflower until late winter as they are incredibly sturdy and after producing fluffy,cotton ball-like,seed heads they will wave and rattle in the wind like long,thin drumsticks.
You will need a shady border measuring 6m x 4m.

I learn the hard way, unfortunately

I don't just go to class, I test and learn in the field. Because I though I knew better, I figured I could bend the rules.
In fall four years ago I sheet-mulched over a bed full of Agapanthus and Japanese Anemones. I spread a 5 inch layer of compost (two strikes) over newspaper. We'd spread compost (in a one to two inch layer) over a client's soil for years as a sort-of "mulch." What could go wrong?
Although I carefully covered the soil, the Anemone had already reached the bed's perimeter and enmeshed itself amongst the Box edging. I cut down and dug out as much of the Agapanthus as I could before I sheeted
