Colourful plants to put in large plant pots/urns

Posted: 22/02/2013 at 18:27

I always start with one tall grass in the middle of the pot,usually a  deep purple variety, then put in sweet potato  vines chartreuse and blackie ,and change out the fill plants with the seasons.I even add small gourds and pumpkins in the fall.Things that thrill, things that fill and things that spill .

Growing Sweet Peas

Thank you David ,. I watered them and it has been very cold here at night They are doing great I never thought a plant could take the cold weather like sweet peas do. I placed a red giant mustard plant in the cold frame also, it seems to have more tender leaves and wilts when its too cold ,I could  then cover it with a blanket as not to get too much of a deep freeze.

This should be on the wildlife thread because it has ruffled more than a few feathers.

I did get out, evetually,one nice man and his girl friend dug us out and pulled with his truck.I got his address and plan on sending him a gift card for a nice meal.I would have rather been sitting in the greenhouse with the rain,drumming planting seeds ,it does sound so cozy and peaceful.
