Planting Azaleas in the Daffodil Border

Developing a new garden takes lots of planning, time, and patience.

Last spring, I decided to design a new garden along one side of the carriage road between my Summer House and my stable. I wanted to add colorful azaleas - a variety of unique specimens in shades of pink, orange, crimson and white. I already have many azaleas growing and flourishing in this area, but I wanted to expand the collection. First, we planted about 170 azaleas on one side to the carriage road, and then another 200 on the other side. This week, I added a collection of azaleas to the long daffodil border located on one side of my farm. Of all the shrubs that flower in spring, azaleas provide some of the most brilliant displays. I am so excited - this garden will look so beautiful.
