WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Jim and Rhonda Schoolfield let Mother Nature do most of the work in their garden at 130 Beagle Trail. It’s earned them a spot on this year’s Azalea Garden Tour.
The couple says the garden is very different from most formal gardens. Flowers grow wild and in no particular order as they weave in and out of other plants.
The Schoolfields take pride in the free feeling the garden gives off.
“Our garden is pretty wild and untamed and natural,” Rhonda said. “It is organic and we just let it do what nature wants it to do.”
The Schoolfields planted thousands of azaleas throughout the garden, too. They say when they bloom, it’s spectacular and native to North Carolina nature.
