Here is my container plan for 2012.
I keep this list of large outdoor containers in a file on my computer. I can easily add containers when I find new ones and delete containers when they break. I try to describe the container and then use a character to mark containers that match such as the ! with galvanized trash can.
You'll notice I have some letters on the list: A, B, C, D & E. I'll just pick up something that looks good when I 'm at the nursery. I'm just marking them on the list so I can coordinate some matching containers. I'm going with more foliage in the containers than flowers this year. The heat last summer was not kind to some of my selections leaving me with empty containers. Bacopa is not on my list this year. It just up and died on me last summer. Plans change and there will likely be editing.
