I know, I know…..it’s not July 31 yet. But I decided I would post pictures of my container gardens now and not wait till the last minute. LOL
I have 10 large containers that I plant for the summer. This summer, I decided to use only plants that I had started from seed (winter sowing or indoor starts) and plants that I had taken slips from last fall and kept them growing all winter on my window sill.
The pictures are three of my planters.
The first planter has coleus, that I started from seed and a green & purple plant that I originally rec’d from horsetail at the GT getogether tw0 years ago. I don’t know what the name of the green & purple plant is…..if someone else recognizes it, I’d be glad if it was id’ed.
This next planter is filled with a geranium that I grew from a slip, rose kale, started from seed, Mario’s mystery marigold, bunny tails, started from seed and a sweet potato, kept from last year.
This half barrel has coleus, started from seed and a sweet potato kept over the winter.
