Gardening in Chapel Hill, NC

Post by J. Conybear » Sun, 07 Jan 1996 04:00:00



I'm in love with my plants and Garden in Iowa but there's a possibility
we could be moving to Chapel Hill, NC.  Would I like gardening
there?  Is the season a lot longer?  Can I grow daffodils?  Will roses
stay alive all year long?  

Also, if you were in my situation, would you dig up your beloved plants
(100s of them!) and take them with you?

Yes. Yes. Yes. And Yes.

Nah. Leave them for the next person to have fun. Start over, but I warn
you...my little garden in front of my apartment will blow yours away.  :)

last frost.  hehehe)

I would take my favorites with me, leave the rest and hope the next person
is in love with plants as you are.

I don't have my zone map with me, but I'm here in Zone 6 (zone 5 in my
backyard) anyway, I'm sure our growing season is longer here. Last frost is
usually mid April and first frost early October. We can grow bulbs and just
about everything else here (other than perennial tropicals). I believe
you'll be able to grow much more down here (although I don't know your
zone). Quite a dilemna about the garden. In a way I would welcome
starting over and in another it would be so hard to leave. How about
taking some of your favorites or those with sentimental value? It would
be a nice gift for the new owners of your home to have a lovely garden.
Good luck.
