Time to design my Halloween Garden!





I live in a wonderful old brick 1930's Tudor style home in Downtown Saint Joseph, Missouri. I have two flower gardens, one in the front yard and one in the backyard. I’m just now starting to plant my Halloween theme Garden . . . I’m so excited!
Because I don’t use pesticides, I have an animal friendly garden and lawn. My two-year-old Harrier mix dog “Lillian Munster” likes to dig and run all over the back yard soooo it’s a mess!!! This year we are going to try SOD in the backyard and see if it will last better then last year attempts (Grass seed). I have ordered some wonderful flower seeds from Johnny’s select Seeds, four different types of sunflowers for the birds and a NEW deep orange snapdragon. I will be going to the Kansas city farmer’s market every Saturday hunting for the right Halloween flower/plant for my garden. I’m also going to order some of the plants off Kristen’s website( the link is on my blog). Because of the cold weather this Spring, I’m way behind on planting!!! I’ll keep you updated as my Garden grows!

Hi Patty,
I can't wait to see how your Halloween garden progresses. I'm having fun finding all sorts of spooky plantings. Where did you find that great witch rock?

Hi, I just stumbled upon your blog and as a gardener, I love the idea of a halloween garden, So many plants come to mind.
I've got several of your haunted brooms from way back when.
