LivingGardeningYard of the Week: Darlene Bourne and Jim Pert

Yard of the Week: Darlene Bourne and Jim Pert

Mississippi Mills Yard of the Week is sponsored by the Almonte and District Horticultural Society.

This week our Yard of the Week is in the village of Pakenham at 122 Dalkeith Street. It belongs to Darlene Bourne and Jim Pert. The garden was lovely this spring with lots of bulbs and a flowering crab. Now that summer has arrived, the garden is an oasis for birds and butterflies, with lots of peonies, hydrangea, hostas, along with a wonderful pond and waterfall. Darlene has lots of containers with annuals for colour (including a pot of herbs which was hosting two swallowtail caterpillars on the dill) and Jim has a lovely vegetable garden. They recently had to replace their septic system, and now an ecologically friendly garden is planted surrounding the system. A lilac hedge had to be removed and is now replaced with a great row of hydrangea.
