I plant a lot of containers. We have some large hardscape areas which really need plants.
Here is the flower tower. This year, I went with white bacopa and purple hyacinth bean vine.
The front walk gets a few containers and hanging baskets. I'll bring out some houseplants when it gets consistently warmer.
I placed some containers amongst the garden beds.
These are planted with gomphrena seed.
Here is the gooseneck loosestrife.
A mix of sweet potato vines.
Purple basil in the laundry basket. It's hard to see right now. After I mulch it, there will be more contrast.
Around the water container, I rearrange the plants through the summer. I still need to get some fish.
Along the patio edge, I have my large galvanized containers and several small clay pots. The hanging baskets will go up on hooks after they get better rooted.
I also have a tray of geranium cuttings I'm hoping will root. There's always room for more plants.
I have moved all of the plants I overwintered from the family room to the garden. Some I left in the same containers. Others, I combined with different plants in larger containers. The list of overwintered survivors are in the previous post.
Remember my container list in February?
Here's what it looks like now.
Obviously, plans change.
