As you are aware I'm now in new employment and am dragging through changes like you wouldn't believe.
ONE of the changes we want to implement is making the building a little more friendly looking as well as (politely) drawing attention to the very fact that we are there.
In the past they had flower pots but these were eventually left unwatered, neglected, you know how it goes. But the idea did work so I'm willing to try it again.
Due to security these plants will be in pots that will be fixed to a railing can brought in each evening so the plants can't get too large, they must be able to tolerate a fair amount of sun in the summer as my gosh does our front door get warm!
I'm happy to replace the pots on a regular basis to allow for seasonal changes as it'll help add interest. They'll come home with me to rest and recuperate!
Ideally they would also compliment our branded colours of green, white, and purple.
Has anyone got any Suggestions? I only tend to look at plants for their ability to be eaten so for purely beauty I'm a little lost.
So far I have
- chives (nice purple flowers, easy to care for, can be cut and come again for longevity, I just happen to have plenty in the garden)
- lavender (likes the sun, won't mind when we forget to water it)
- rosemary (looks good all year round, symbolically linked to memory; a nice touch when working wirh older people)
