As a gardener, I’ve always had a passion for designing and planting outdoor containers.
Playing around with the different color combinations and textures of plants are fun and the choices are almost endless.
To me, containers are an easy way to accessorize and customize my garden with pockets of color and my own creative expression.
Over the years, I’ve had some container successes (I was a 2011 & 2012 Fine Gardening Container Design Finalist) and some not so great, like being a bit too ambitious and planting over 75 containers one year in which I had to succumb to watering daily for months during a drought (what was I thinking! This year, I decided to keep my container count to about 50…still quite a few but alot more manageable.
I’m so glad I took this photo to share its splendor with you cause for now its just a memory..
A combination of various hues of purple foliage plants draws attention to this planter.
I use liquid fertilizer for my heavy bloomers (like petunias), and for my vegetable, shade loving and foliage containers I use Haven Brand Manure Tea, an organic fertilizer that these plants love. Petunias do not do too well here in the heat of summer, so I use Pentas or Periwinkles.
The theme is “How To” and I hope to teach you how to back up your DVDs so you’ll stop bugging me to do it.
