About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Butterfly Paradise Pre-Planned Cottage Garden:
I removed my parkway lawn several years ago and purchased this pre-planned garden as well as the Jumbo Waterwise Pre-Planned Garden to replace the grass. My garden is well irrigated with drip lines, but many plants have not survived and have been replaced with other varieties purchased from local nurseries. I found that several plants were susceptible to black spot and powdery mildew including the Coreopsis Zagreb, Rudbeckia fulgida Goldsturm, and Echinacea 'Pow Wow White'. I have attempted to treat the problem with Neem oil, but it requires nearly weekly treatment to keep the mildew away. In the end, i removed the blighted plants and replaced with less susceptible varieties from local stores. After blooming The 'Pow Wow White' turns a dull ivory yellow, which looks unattractive unless cut. The Red Valerian is prolific but also spreads. I find myself weeding dozens of seedlings in the spring, and it has spread to my neighbors gardens now. Overall, i had high hopes for this garden, but three years later i have a 50% survival rate. It's not worth the money when larger, and heartier plants can be purchased locally.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The plan to hat was sent with h the Butterfly Garden was helpful and he plants all were in excellent condition upon their arrival. One plant did die but high country sent me something to replace it the following year.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
