It's so nice to hear from you again.

Ge,
I've been watching your thread with great interest .
The progression of your plant gives me a lot of valuable info.

Thank you so much.

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.

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.

Ravishing colors, Tomtom, and the plantings behind the containers are marvelous. I don't think I've ever seen that pink monkeyflower, Mimulus naiandinus, offered in the US. Thank you for these pictures!

I'm checking in here because I am thinking about containers for 2013 already.
Tom Tom' is such an inspiration. Since TT lives in a tropic zone9 and I am in z6 I just look at plant character combinations.

I too am working on fall plantings. Planted calandula seeds for the fall and orn. grasses to put in the GH.
I have a pot with narcisus plus another pot with orn kale, pansies and varigated flax. I just like some color for the winter when possible.
