Chelle, you've done a great job raising your garden beds - so lovely! Exactly what your newly soggy patch needs. That water looks like kryptonite for lilies!

Thanks!

I have my fingers crossed that the remaining Citronella manage to make it through bloom stage. They have fat buds now, so I guess things are going okay for them so far.

So...back to questions about the original plant; should I add pictures/comments of the red one to the Red Velvet DB entry, or just pop it into the generic listing?

Very nice indeed and the lilies seem to do fabulously!

I really like the use of wood logs as edging for your raised beds - looks very natural and blends in so nicely in the surroundings.

I have no need to raise beds for drainage, but I do have many areas where I would like to plant where digging is difficult as there are many tree roots. I thought about using some old wood logs I have, but wondered if it could be made to look natural or not... Seeing it done so nicely, is inspirational Smiling

That's great, William!

When you're ready to begin, these links may help. Smiling

When planting with logs over the roots of desirable trees, you might try this method.

If tree root suffocation isn't an issue, these really deep beds work very well.
The thread "New addition to an existing bed" in Permaculture forum

For the bed shown previously, I just left out the log separators in the lily area. By doing that, I'll still be able to dig and separate as necessary.

It's a really fun and rewarding process. I can say with quite a bit of confidence that I'll never plant directly into this ground again! Even my water-lovers get planting pockets now. Smiling
