DeBorrah’s Garden Sanctuary – Bagicha Bazaar



My name is DeBorrah Tibbs. I live in the warm Georgia peach state in Smyrna. Gardening is my passion and ever changing. I have gardened most of my life, growing up in a small town called Andover, Ohio, raising a living on a farm. As I ventured out on my own, flowers and shrubs became my focus and obsession. What I would like to share is a before and after garden makeover. I took a small backyard which I now call my garden sanctuary. It’s been a journey of six and a half years that inspired me to start my own YouTube channel. Impressive garden cornerIn December 2022.

The garden before the transformationHere was the same place as before, just as the new garden had begun. Not much to get excited about yet!

The garden shelter is under construction with hardscaping and some plants being added.It took a lot of work to get everything smooth and ready for construction and planting.

A garden that comes together with containers and small plants and more hardscapingSometimes things have to get ugly before they get pretty, but the plants in containers and some in the ground are already making it feel like a garden even as construction continues.

(Rosa ‘Double Knockout’, zones 5-9), woodland phlox (Phlox divaricata, Zones 3–8), ‘Little Limelight’ hydrangea (Hydrangea punculata ‘Little Limelight’, zones 3-8) and jasmine (Jasminum officinale, Zones 7–10) in the flower box, which didn’t survive the freeze blast we had.
