You may recall that earlier this spring I made another attempt at figuring out my patio pots.
Years of so so results had left me not at all excited about container gardening.
I’m pleased to report I think I’ve figured it out.
My theory was all wrong.
For years I have planted lots
And I mean lots of small bedding plants.
Petunias, marigolds, petunias…
I always picked a variety in case it was a bad year for a particular plant.
It had worked lots of places that I had lived and gardened.
But for some reason the theory was all wrong here.
I think it’s because the pots are so big
And I couldn’t put anything tall like a topiary basket
in the middle since it would block the view from the breakfast room.
So this year I went for fewer bigger plants.
I mean bigger in every sense of the word.
