Mary Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
Whee! It's my day off from the greenhouses/nursery tomorrow because I get to work one of the busiest days of the year... day before Mother's Day. Lucky me. Oh joy.
So since everyone else has been out in great numbers buying plants for themselves, I figure it's my turn!
I was going to make a "plant by number" pot for next to the front door, but the largest pot I have is light blue & 12" diameter. It doesn't go with the red brick house front & may not hold that many plants. So I'm going to buy at least an 18" "terra cotta" pot that's premade.
I was going to get a premade windowsill box for above the planter, but the brick ledge is only 5" deep & I have to stay below 10" to not interfere with the doorbell. And I don't want plants, water, bugs & dirt dropping down on us from above the bench, so I won't put any on that ledge. So I guess a windowsill box is out of the question.
Instead I'm buying a premade mixed hanging planter.
I'll also be getting the annuals for between the perennials in the back garden.
The front perennial/annual garden's in the process of being torn up & turned into a lava rock/perennial garden with stepping blocks to the park bench. I'm saving what plants survived last summer & the winter for hopefully planting alongside the bench & straight down to the sidewalk. I have to buy lava rock & stepping blocks for that tomorrow too.
I told my coworkers I'm going to teasingly give them the rude attitude & such like some of the customers we've been dealing with! LOL
And hopefully none of the customers recognize me & try to get me to help them with their purchasing decisions or I'll have to clock in & get paid for such, but then I'd get put to work filling wholesale orders instead, like a regular day!
So, how's everyone else's gardens & pots growing or ideas for such going?
