Re: Black Swallowtail Caterpillars/ First time here

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...

Hello Auralie,
    I suppose you have tried everything there is out there, but... gentiana 
look great in containers. Have you tried hypertufa troughs or favored clay 
containers to grow the small gentians? Look great shown off that way. Like 
mini rockgarden.
