Welcome to Mondays with Mike McGroarty.
I started doing these videos for my Backyard Growers, but realized that a lot of other people will like them as well. This is a bit of a documentary of what we we have going on at Mike’s Plant Farm here in wonderful Perry, Ohio.

Mulching our Japanese maple beds. Audio is really bad, it was windy and then from out of now where a random clanking tractor drove behind Amber with the camera! Only in the country does that happen! Watch the movie.
I’ll make this quick today. Getting ready for our plants sale, plants lined up everywhere, building is packed full of Rhododendrons!
Wha, wha, wow! What a week! We got the old house landscaped, we’ve got our sign posts up, no sign so we hung up some rubber chickens (long story), the landscaping around the sign is done and the pile of dirt from last week’s video is now a beautiful landscape planting. I found a new home (temporarily) for my Peaches and Cream Japanese maples. On one landscaped mound I managed to work in four Japanese maples and a Weeping Noota Cypress tree, one of my favorite plants.
Mike climbs a dirt pile as Amber giggles while holding the camera. A secret about dividing daylilies. Something that I learned about rooting hardwood cuttings of Purple Sandcherry, prunus cistena, Mike showing off the thousands of plants that he has purchased from his customers, those that started out with his system Backyard Growing System.
