I saw you on the other thread. Yours look great, I'm already thinking of things I can poke holes in now that I had a trial by fire in my biggy "Pamela" basket. Good luck with yours, the box look like it will create a cascade effect.
No I didn't see that, oh darn that must of been awful! They were beautiful, whatever you did sure worked out very well. I bought the womans book who did the plantings, but way too poor and cheap to buy the pots she was selling. I enjoyed her suggestion on combinations of plants tho.
I had high winds strong enough to cause all the mulch in my garden to become little projectiles. I couldn't figure out what all the scratches were on all the plant leaves (iris, hosta, etc) then it finally dawned on me. I was lucky at that time because I didn't have many containers.
trust me... I was... and as I said on the other thread.. the black eyed susan vines were holding the broken pieces so I had to wait for them to shrivel up before I could get them out... insult to injury
Your welcome, also, remember to use the lightest potting mix you can find and mix in the perlite or vermeculite at a pretty good ratio; like 40/60 the last number being your medium. I used coconut coir in mine as it absorbs moisture and holds it in and with the bloommaster that is what your will need, I also used those moisture retaining sheets you can add to the bottom of the container.
Could you tell me where you purchased the Terracotta post hangers? I remember seeing wooden hangers somewhere in the past but I think it was at a garden/craft show. I would love to find some like the ones that you are using and your yard looks just fabulous. So many great ideas!
Thank you, Shleigh
yes they are... they had a stand in Edison at the flower show... I mentioned I originally bought them in a co-op on here... and they offered me the co-op price in person.. since I was a return customer
