Container Gardens

Trailing Vinca on the front porch ~ pre-potted for me but my favorite!
Every year, I like to experiment with plant combinations in pots and tubs.
It’s fun throwing colors and textures together and then waiting to see how they grow.
Some turn out some don’t, but I enjoy the experience non-the-less.
Annual Purple Feather grass & Potato vine and Impatiens & Torenia
Hens & Chicks and Blue Spruce Sedum

and finally an update of the White & Fuzzy Tub….
The washtub is almost hidden from view & the snow in summer is starting to trail the ground and the Yarrow is now completely hidden…

Oh, no wait…. Here it is….  Maybe next year it will flower.

Container Gardening

As promised, here are some pics of my latest project.
I have been growing Herbs, Veggies and a few Perennials in a container for a few years now, and love it.
You’ll have to excuse the weeds. I’ve been very busy this year and have neglected my “home” garden

My Hens and Chicks Container with a little “Blue Spruce” Sedum tucked in the center….
Did you know Hens & Chicks flower? I’ve had a few flower on me before.
Here’s an update on the “White & Fuzzy” washtub in an earlier post.
