Woodland Bed

Established in 1983, the woodland bed occupies a gentle slope that was originally forested with balsam fir and white spruce. Unlike its neighbor, the peat beds, this bed has a fairly nutrient-rich soil base comprised of leafmold, topsoil, composted farmyard manure and sand (3:3:2:1). Similar to the peat bed, this garden is a mixture of native and exotic plants. The first plants to flower are winter aconite and snowdrops, usually before the snow is gone. Ferns, trout lilies, hellebores and hosta are but a few of the plants that call this bed home.
