Re: can we talk container gardening?

I sold well-rooted quarts of Strobilanthes at my garage sale for $1.75.
About 6-8 of them weren't all that well shaped and didn't sell so I mixed
them in a shade planting of lime-green coleus.  They've all put on enough
new leaves for me to have to pinch the tips for branching.  I fertilize with
a 9 month slow release fertizer with minors.   If you want I could send you
some next spring.
