Bookshelf: Container Gardening Books
Saturday, July 19, 2008
Today, I'll be brief: here's another Before and After installment (see below for "Before"). You may recall the foliage only container that I planted which included Coleus "Fishnet Stockings". The sweet potato vine in this container continues to grow out of control so I trim it from time to time. The thyme that I planted never got much bigger but I think that's because I positioned it in such a way that it was overshadowed by the other plants and never got much light. But all in all, I'm pretty happy with the way this arrangement turned out. I think it's fun to plant a foliage only container every year because it presents the challenge of coming up with creative ideas without using flowers. Let me know what you think by commenting below.
