Until LuLu learns not to romp through the flower beds I’ll be using containers for my more delicate plantings. Most of my pots are already full, but I’ll need more – much more if I’m to have all the color I hope for in the garden. I can spend a lot of money on decorative pots or I can go to Goodwill and see what they have I might improvise with. I popped in there today and found these in about two minutes and for a fraction of what I might ordinarily spend. I like the shape of the blue pot. It has a small mouth, but plenty of room for roots to spread, and there’s a drainage hole in the bottom. The basket is lined with cloth, and I could fill it with dirt as is, or insert a plain plastic pot as shown. Once they have flowers spilling over their rims I think they’ll look quite nice.
These are wallflowers in one of my large pots on the deck.
These are the tiny blue flowers of a Jack Frost Brunnera macrophylla with pretty white allium bells.
I hope to get my new pots planted over the weekend. Later I’ll share what they look like when the plants are mature. Have a beautiful day!
