one wish: I have a bloom master myself and tried to plant cukes and strawberries in it, didn't do well with either. I was thinking Verbanas perhaps? Can you give the directions as to what medium you used, what kind of fertilizer, and any other things we should know to be successful with these?

one wish: that garden is so beautiful. I went out and bought some Verbena for mine after seeing yours and how beautiful they are. I will plant mine next Spring/Summer and will use coir,perlite and go and get some osmocote and follow suit.
