Flower Tower Video

Since much of the garden is looking dry and brown, as I'm sure you noticed in the tour post; this video has only healthy green plants.

After watching this video, I spied some heart shaped leaves.  I think I have a morning glory in one of the pots.  Totally possible as I mix my potting soil with the compost that forms from throwing all the plant cuttings in the area where my morning glories grow.  I've been pulling morning glory plants out of a lot of the containers this year.  I'll leave this one.

  1. Isn't it sad that so many of us are looking anywhere to find some green that is in good shape? Love your pot tree though and it all really looks lovely.

  5. I call them tipsy containers. Yours looks good. Mine, I haven't looked at in a while. It's been either strmy or HOT here. I was thinking of putting sedum in mine and that way I could leave it alone.

  7. This is a really nice piece of art to have in your garden. Yeah...those morning glories are something, aren't they? I have to pull them out, pull them back and find a place for them or they will get into EVERYTHING! Sorry about your rain. It has been tough for many people. Rain has finally arrived here and it's looking like today they'll be more. Humid though! I'll be getting back into my garden here soon. It has been progressing slowly and the nature hikes have been domineering:)

  8. I have been trying to get my morning glories to grow. The heat takes them back and they are really pathetic looking. I hope the one in your pot that you let live will do ok.

  10. Was going to tell you that I believe I am giving up on vinca vines as they are very invasive, take over everything within 10 feet of them soon enough. Nice idea with the tower.

    1. Keeping them in a container helps a lot. Here, it is too dry for them to want to stray very far and they die to the ground each winter. The spread slooooowly for me.
