Our friends Debra and Jim own this beautiful house in Italy. It is available for rent if you are looking for somewhere peaceful in Tuscany to spend some time.
Last year at Casa Debbio we decided to plant a new garden on the terrace below the house. We had some pine trees removed, which has allowed a walnut tree and a fig tree to get more light and space, and gave us a new area to plant.
This is what the new terrace looked like at the end of spring last year.
Here is what it looked like at the end of spring this year.
We are absolutely delighted with the results. Weeks of rain may have ruined the roses and geraniums, but it certainly made everything grow. Last spring was quite dry and I spent hours every other day watering the new plants. This year I didn’t have to do it at all.
The garden behind the house is growing well too, the peonies and hydrangeas have done very well.
Watching the garden for a whole year is amazing.
