Re: Black Swallowtail Caterpillars/ First time here

Well, Auralie
If you can not talk your garden club into getting together for making hypertufa containers, then come on down for a visit this coming September and October. JoAn will be giving her classes here the very last of Sept. or early October. Only two class are scheduled right now, but more will be added if needed.
I have a big itch to make some new tufa containers in rather large sizes and mix them with galvanized containers of various sizes and shapes from a watering trough to a foot tub... Place the arrangement up on the hill with a stone wall as the background near the entrance of the new greenhouse. Fill them with lots of trailing "stuff".

Hi, Gene
 I love the looks of hypertufa containers, but have never had any.
Maybe that's a project for my garden club next year.  I don't know
where I'd put them, but I'm sure I would find a place.  I still have
to be careful about what I plant in them - the deer don't mind
plants in containers.  They have nibbled my extensive container
plantings of caladiums, which are supposed to be toxic.  I had
put the caladiums around more vulnerable plants like hibiscus
and miniature roses - got those too.  They climbed over a large
planter on my front doorstep and through a foot-wide gap right
next to the house in the fish-line protecton around the front
bed, and wiped out my hosta bed.  Still, maybe next year...
