Will not be staying here much during the summer months and thought I could have some type of flowers while away...maybe in a couple of containers in frt. We have a sprinkler system and I hope this will provide the water needed. I will probably be here mostly during the winter months. I love the cottage gardens. I have a home in WV where I have been trying my hand at flower gardening.
