Planting Next to the Basement

One of the tricks I have learned is that with some plants, if you plant them next to a basement wall, they will return every year even if they otherwise would die out in the rest of the garden.

My favorite plant to do this with is Salvia black and blue. It’s a hummingbird favorite and unfortunately will generally die out from year to year. Mine is now about two inches tall even though we are still having freezing evenings.
