Welcome to Julie’s Blog

Camellia buds about to bloom.

Hello everyone, and welcome! What an exciting summer this has been so far with ideas, energy, and dirt flying like confetti. Around the Yard is growing, and I’m thrilled to be able to share information, ideas, and gardening experiences with you.

As a beginning gardener, I quickly learned that the best source of wisdom was other gardeners. My mission is to make Around the Yard a valuable well of knowledge you can draw from for your yard and an online community to connect with fellow growers like yourself. Above all, the information presented here should be accurate, practical, and clear – and I’m counting on you to help ensure this.

Each article and blog entry has a space for comments, and I welcome your experiences, responses, and feedback. In addition, you can use our Ask Julie form to send me an e-mail or question. Thanks for visiting, and come back soon!

  2. I was watching a show today and a man was talking about putting a soaker hose in a raised garden bed, but I had to leave the room and didn’t see how he installed it.

    Do you have something on your website that I can check out? I’m very interested in doing this next Spring.

    P. S. I love, love, love your show!!

  3. I want to put my camilla tree in another part of the garden. At present it is among other trees, not looking too happy, and we wondered if it can be moved and should it be in direct sun???
    Many thanks, Margie
