Astrological Gardening


I had to laugh out loud whilst enjoying Anna Povard’s ‘The Curious Gardener,’ in a section where she translates the signs of the zodiac to gardening tendencies and practices….. tell me, was she not dead on?

Gemini: Criticism never goes down well with Gemini’s, but is it really such a good idea to plant an all black [substitute with blue in my case] garden? It is voguish, certainly, but just the teensiest bit limiting. You can have too much, even of Ophiopogon! [substitute with Corydalis flexuosa] Finance continues to be a problem and will be until you learn that you do not HAVE to throw away the potted Camellias after they have finished flowering. You are good at pretending to know more than you do, love variety and are a compulsive buyer of garden gadgets. [substitute with plants in this case!] Speaking of which, there is the most amazing gizmo around now which cuts edges, shaves legs and minces Parsley!. Not all at the same time of course!

LMAO funny!
