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!!!
