The sunflowers on the west side of the house started so well.
Then they succumbed to totally soggy ground from major rainstorms.
Charlie dug them up.
Then he graded the area so any wetness would run away from the foundation. The exposed foundation is about 8 inches tall.
I wasn’t sure if I needed more but I was ready to plant the ones I have 3 feet away from the foundation and 18 inches apart. They grow to a height of 12 to 18 inches with about the same spread.
As this area get hot sun in the afternoon I covered the newly planted shrubs with lounge chairs as a sunshield.
While I was planting I transplanted an English boxwood that I have been nursing along for a few years.
Do you have experience with heather?
