Can you mix plants w/different water needs in gritty mix?
I am getting ready to plant my mom some mixed containers and was wondering how well some plants would mix, due to having different water requirements.
Can plants like zinnia and other drought tolerant plants be mixed with others that need water on a more regular basis like petunia's?
I've been working with some of my own with great results, but the plantings are fairly new. I have several herbs together doing well right now. Roots are at all different levels in the mix, and lavender in the center.
I know you had the Gaura lindheimeri in a mixed container, but I really didn't notice what else was with it. Were they also drought tolerant, or was it a mix of plants with different needs.?
My one out in the garden/ground is blooming like crazy now. :-) AKA Dancing Butterflies~ much easier name to say and remember. lol...
If anyone has plants with different needs growing in the gritty or the 5-1-1 please feel free to share pictures!
