It is time to review the containers at Garden on Sherlock Street. If you want to see how they've changed through the growing season, here are the links:
Angel Wing Begonia cutting doing well on front porch.
Impatiens devastated by spider mites and some small hopping bug which I could not capture to identify. I sprayed the impatiens with soap and water which drove away the small hopping bug, but the damage had been done. The impatiens looked so nice in my last container report. They were right by the front door. I moved the container to the patio by the air conditioner. I'm always hopeful for a recovery but it isn't looking good.
There was another angel wing begonia plant in the last container review that had one leaf I was hoping to root in another pot but it has since died.
The Martha Washington geranium is blooming nicely.
The white geranium has taken the place of the impatiens container by the front door.
The hanging baskets along the front walk are blooming wave petunias.
The sweet potato vines in these containers are filling in. I'm waiting for them to spill over the sides.
The flower tower is still looking good!
This basket of ice plant got picked on by birds. I've taken the basket down and it is sitting on the ground. Hopefully, it will grow now.
The recovering nasturtiums are growing.
Purple fountain grass getting plumes.
The cacti collection which my Goddaughter thinks is 'neat.'
Joining the garden containers: mother-in-law's tongue. It's always stayed in the house but is looking a bit limp. After seeing how well Turling's are growing I'm thinking mine needs more sun.
I moved the bucket with verbena out into the yard to get more sun. It's putting on buds.
The asparagus fern transplants and geranium cuttings are settling in these baskets off the patio.
The bacopa is really draping well.
There are also geraniums in these baskets. This one is blooming.
Here's a whole container of geraniums.
Sweet potato vine and vinca.
Ivy geranium with two toned blooms.
Wave petunia, bacopa and dianthus.
Another sweet potato vine.
Purple hyacinth bean vine with the self seeded four o'clocks. The alyssum I planted couldn't compete.
The caladiums just keep getting more beautiful.
The water garden container is perfect for the fish. We had another casualty. There are four fish left out of the six I bought.
My uncle made this snail out of a rocker arm.
The Jacob's coat starts from my neighbor are full fledged plants now.
I lost an amaryllis bulb. We'll see how these three fare.
