This is for my friend Ann, who generously helped me with her time and expertise to shop for pots! Ann, here they are! What do you think?
I'll take more pictures when the plants fill in. The middle is a darling little lavender that I thought was a blue salvia when I first saw it. I can't wait for it to really bloom - maybe after this next heat spell.
The big plant in the middle is a bright red camelia that blooms in December. Around it is white verbena, purple petunia and chartreuse sweet potato vine. The sweet potato vine looks horrible though. Brown edges on a lot of the leaves. Anyone have any ideas about that?
Check out the difference in these double blooming purple petunias. Same plants, planted the same day, both fertilized the same number of times.
These were planted in fresh garden blend from Grimms.
These were planted in I'm-not-sure-what.
Another wimpy petunia, but this gives you the best picture of the bloom.
I think I have some soil to amend!
