Tall, narrow pot
I impulse bought a tall, narrow ceramic pot for the front of my house. It wasn't until I got it home that I got to wondering how to plant flowers in it. It's a waste of potting soil to fill it up with annuals whose roots won't go very far down. If I plant them in a smaller pot & sit the pot inside the ceramic pot, I have the problem of what to use to keep it raised up. I always see photos in magazines of flowers in similar containers, but they never mention how they plant in them, just what they plant.
