RE: can we talk container gardening?

Donna: A very simple but nice looking and easy to maintain container,
plus everything sold cheap at Walmart: any variety of coleus, some sweet
potato vines, and those things Walmart sells as "Spikes"...not sure what
they are but they look like a small grass, they get to be about 24
inches tall or so and maintain a fairly upright form. This combo. works
well because you can get endless variety of color with the coleus, the
draping forms with the vines, and the tall and arching graceful lines
with the spikes. Virtually maintenance free except for watering, too!

Subject: [CHAT] can we talk container gardening?

I realize I have a year.... but thinking if someone has a great
looking<br>flower potted display, would you mind taking a picture and
attaching a<br>plant list?<br><br>Mine always look like crap... never
get the size's right or something. I<br>have a few nice large pots that
would look great if I knew what I was<br>doing :)<br><br>Donna<br>The
wind has once again picked up, way to windy to work outside...
