And I like it! The advantages?
- Planting 'em in bigger pots and leaving several inches in the pot to the top, takes less watering - you can douse 'em with lots of water at once.
- They're not so stinkin' finicky, wilting at the first heat wave that comes along.
- They're striking in pots.
- You can use regular dirt mixed with compost...that's cheaper.
- Best of all, it saves money.
- Unless you're gone for weeks, no one has to make a special trip to your house to water 'em.
- It's freedom - the best of both worlds - plants in pots without being a slave to 'em! :)
My potted perennials.
Sedem in a window box.
I was pleasantly surprised this lavender survives the winter. This is its third summer in this pot and I'm loving it! It's slower to grow but is worth the end result...so classy!
I like the look of perennials clustered together, though they can be moved around to personal taste. A warning - they're heavy!
