|Zebrina, Royal Standard Hosta and Strip Tease Hosta|
The trick to a great potted plant is to:
Get plants with the same needs; likes water or doesn't like water.
Locate it properly; sun loving plants in the sun and shade loving plants in the shade.
The union pictured above and below really likes bright shade. I made two of the combinations above using galvanized watering container. You can get these at any hardware store but do not by the paint pails they are not galvanized and they will rust. I purchase the three plants mentioned above and split them all in two. And divided them between the two containers. My containers get watered once a day, twice if its really hot. I also feed my potted plants once a week. I use a pump sprayer with organic liquid fertilizer.
|My New Lovely Sitting Area|
I had an area that was boring...the lawn seemed to come to a dead end with no purpose (pictured above after adding pots and hard scape). So I gathered things that I had and bought a few plants and turned a boring spot into a lovely sitting area.
