Absolutely I am putting more beds in. I have too many plants on the wish list still and ideally I will have more bananas, but I need more edible space too and things that I dig and store will be moved and re-arranged for next year. They also get bigger and multiply, and I just need more space. I also have my eyes on a few plants that I may catch on a late season deal like a Foster's or Savannah holly, and I have a vitex that will need some more room. I have a lot of other plants that are small right now, but will need room to grow. As far as new plants going in the ground for sure are 2 new figs, a Sal's and a locally named hardy variety of unknown origin. I am also looking to plant some thornless blackberries and raspberries. I would also like to get another trachy, a larger needle, and a fall blooming camellia, along with more perennials. At the top of the list is Spigelia marilandica, which seems to be the most elusive plant on Earth.
