TomTom that display is so playful. You arrange things with such care.The squares on the easle is a really nice idea.
I hate to nail and hang anything on our house.

My plant progressions are spotty. I took a chance and planted a new coleus that was supposed to be sun tollerant but it just doesnt like as much sun as it gets.I have it in another planter where its doing well. Applemint ,its a slow grower. I am not sure I want it next year.
This is an unhappy Applemint with trailing red. The nemesia is not happy either but it came in distress.I keep hoping it will take off.Its still early so another couple of weeks will reveal whats going to happen to that combination

Hi,ge
>The squares on the easle is a really nice idea.

I purchased the plants when young in early spring and
arranged them that way.
I'll show you the step-by- step pics of its growth.

Sorry to hear that your plant progressions are spotty.
I do hope too that your plants will take off as time progresses.

Its raining again ans coleus love it. If the caladiums will just pop out I will be happy.

SE Houston (Hobby), TX(Zone 9a)

When it rains here, with our high summertime humidity, my coleus used to get mealy bugs...

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

I think that happens here when there is an especially wet summer.

All the plants are fantastic. I wondered if Phlox could be put in a planter.I will give that a try for next year.
Delphiniums are dramatic.

(Arlene) Southold, NY(Zone 7a)

Tomtom - so nice to have you back and see your splendid combinations. The hanging basket is glorious and the delphinium are so regal and beautiful. Are they mosses on the easel? Great idea!

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

Tomtom - so beautiful.....love the Delphiniums.

What do you use for potting mix or do you have a recipe to make your own?
