Hello, Virginia,
This is my first 'trip' into the Ohio Gardener pages. How neat to see what you've done with your 'gov't. strip'! Our daughter lives in Worthington, so we'll have to drive down to Clintonville and search for your street! My husband's mother used to visit the Senior Center there and I think the Park of Roses is nearby?
The red witch-hazel is gorgeous. Wish I'd known about it last fall when designing our front landscaping. I planted chokeberry on our N.W. corner, and we'll see how it comes back this spring. It's loaded with berries, so hope that's a good sign. We, too, live on a city street, on a lot just a tad larger than yours. It's amazing how much you can plant in a small space.
Thanks for your info,
Betsy Kreidler

Hello Betsy,
Thanks for your feedback. It is amazing how much can be planted in a small space. I am looking forward to planting this year. I had a huge sugar maple in the front yard that we just had to remove so I am going to have to completely rework the front yard that is now exposed to full southern sun.

Yes, I live on E. Royal Forest, just south of Morse. If you drive by mid-late summer, the govt strip will look it's best!
