Very nice gg3! Please, tell me more about that container. I love it!

And nice greenhouse in the background.

Fort Pierce, FL(Zone 10a)

This is going to be awesome....really looking forward to pictures as it grows. LOVE those little yellow chairs!

The container is an old hog trough we took the top off.

the greenhouse was a little more than we needed so we
only use the front half for seedlings and DH designed
himself a cactus garden and a tropical section,we`re hoping to add a small pond in the back corner.

The little yellow chairs are from Wally-World we painted

Arlington, GA(Zone 8a)

The hog trough was to be part of the Farm Flower section
sunflowers,corn, peppers, wild flowers,but the Coleus
took over so now I have the Coleus Farm,

Okeechobee, FL(Zone 10a)

That is going to be beautiful. Great re-cycleing. I had guessed Nail bin from a hardware store, but suspect the hardware store adapted the hog feeder to it's use. Did you get in on the Messenger/ Mighty Plant Co-op? If so, give em a good misting.

Oh, my!! I think I'm going to have to copy some of your ideas, if you don't mind!! Both are just too adorable! I love rustic farm looking things! I can't wait to seem them kick into gear either.

I have the same butterfly chair from Wal-Mart, but only one. I never thought of painting it. Sheesh, how smart and easy. A can of spray paint is only $1 at the $ store...and I know I have some in the basement. I think maybe burgandy for mine. Right now it's icky rusty white. Hmm, I wonder what else I could paint while I'm at it??? LOL!

I'm new to Coleus and started mine from seed, and didn't bargain on every seed germinating. I've been wondering what I'd do w/ all of them, but I LOVE the multi-compartment planter. I'm going to have to rig something up like that, even if it's just glad-ware wired together, then planting something under the Coleus to hang down and cover it. Now, where do I want to put it?

If I really do get to do this I'll try to post pics so you can see my version. I hope you don't mind me copying you, what is that they say? "Imitation is the best form of flattery?" Well, at least I don't live next door!

Things are finaly growing up!EEs are up and the Orange Punch'
Cannas are doing good.Now what is odd all the Coleus where
about the same size but the ones in the smaller areas are doing much better than the ones on top.

I'm speechless.......well almost. How beautiful this container is, and of course it will be more so as the season progresses. Looking forward to more pictures. The colors are just stunning!

Wow Pheadra, that is so pretty and your collection really growing. I love the old rustic tools too. I hope you can drive down to Molly's Swap on June 17th. I will be bringing antique garden tools as door prizes.
Sidney

Weedville, PA(Zone 6a)

Everything is looking so great! Can't wait to see more pics when it's so filled out that you can hardly even see the planters...although the planters are what makes it so neat!

Wish I could drive on down to Molly's too for a shot at one of those door prizes!

Arlington, GA(Zone 8a)

Thanks everybody and we are getting lots of nice calm rain
yesterday and today next week everything should be up by a foot.

Sugarweed,I hope I can make it I`ll scout around and find her Rup

What a great idea! I love the container with your "coleus farm". Just absolutely beautiful!!!!

Georgia,

The caladiums in your photo with the butterfly 'chairs' are they dwarf? The left one looks like humboldii. I am a collector of unusual caladiums.

This is a phot of humboldii with amaryllis

Ha Pheadra! All you have is a parade! I'm not sure anyone can beat a hog's eating quarters!
