loved this little area...!! we loaded the truck for the move with these little pavers and made a little garden out of garbage!! the little container fit perfect there since who is going sit other than a pot in front of my house!1

thanks kay....i didn't think "pots" where the thing to do in florida because of the water restrictions...but i'm finding my pots hold the water better than the actual gardens!

They will do even BETTER if you mix in some SoilMoist crystals with your soil.

If you haven't realized it yet - Florida is home base for slugs - they merely take vacations to other states! They prefer to eat Florida plants!!!

we had slugs in nj....here's a picture of the nj flower and garden expo i designed and was the director of.....slugs...holly slug and a half!! (this is just a very tiny part of the grounds i designed and planted!)
