Comments: Garden cliches

I do tend to comment here and there throughout the garden blogosphere. I think that when I have something worth commenting on, I’ll start posting them here, as well. This is the first.

Amy Stewart in a post at GardenRant says she doesn’t like the false choice posed by the cliche, “”Who says organic gardens can’t be beautiful?”‘

My comment:

My least favorite in catalogs and plant databases: ‘Prefers consistently moist, well-drained soil.’ Well I prefer ice cream.

The corollary implication is that you should create consistently moist, well-drained soil at a great cost of sweat and treasure instead of finding plants that will thrive in the soil you’ve got.
