Pond Bed North Upgrade

I’ve been busy planting up a bed that I’ve been renovating. It’s part of a bed I’ve called “Pond Bed North” since I constructed it in the late 80s after felling several  birch trees (the previous owners liked even more shade than I do). However, it had become overgrown with unwanted inedibles…
Here’s a video of the bed and the plants and below a picture and hand drawn map of the bed with details of everything I planted for those wanting more details. You’ll see various Japanese edibles, two new Zanthoxylums, Aster scaber (new accessions) and right at the end an exclusive edible, Taraxacum californicum (California dandelion).  This information will be added to my master garden Excel sheet in the winter.
