Comments about High Country Gardens Summer Dreams Pre-Planned Garden:
Planted it this spring in an amended raised bed. Despite less sun than they needed, all survived, including 2 transplanted to more light. Loved the Humming Bird Mint, especially. Have mixed and matched several preplanned gardens over the years with great results
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very hardy garden!

About Me Getting Started
I put in a couple of preplanned gardens 2 years ago and this one is doing great! All of my plants went through a tough initial planting seasons and they came back. It filled in its small garden (I have it in a 5x5 raised garden to the side of my front steps that gets little water) the first year - this year everything was so healthy I'm looking at dividing some of the plants. The Blue Fortune in particular grows massive and needs trimming if you plan to use it in the recommended 5x5 space. Bees love this set up and stick around until every last bloom is gone.

Have to see what Spring brings.
from Denver, Co.
I planted this preplanned garden in a raised garden bed about 10 inches high. The plants all did okay, except the liatris aspera, the squirrels destroyed all of them and then destroyed the replacements I put in. I had to give up and put salvia in instead. The blue fortune got really big and took over the whole bed, I will need to move it this Spring, should not have been in the middle. The solidago fireworks just sat there, it finally began to spread, but never got taller and never bloomed, so I'm not sure that is what it really is. Hopefully, next season all the plants will really take off, it was okay, but not what I had hoped for.

nice selection of plants
By Nikki the gardener

packed very carefully and never ever have I had any dead plants and they look great in my garden after a couple of years of growing.
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.
