Planting Dicentra

If you’re a gardener, there’s a lot you can do in your very own yard to keep you busy during this time at home - start cleaning out the garden beds, creating new planting areas, or preparing your outdoor planters. Gardening is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, get some exercise and still keep within social distancing guidelines.

Not long ago, my gardeners planted dicentra in a patch down behind my chicken coops.
Dicentra, commonly known as bleeding heart, is named for its heart-shaped blossoms that dangle from slender, arching stems. They are easy to care for perennials that thrive in part sun or part shade on well-drained, moist soil.
