An almost all year garden and plant mixing

If you plant containers for different seasons you can then change them over without trying to create an all year round container.  Of course you will either have to be able to afford to buy more containers or be creative regarding the containers you use. ie old baskets painted in yacht varnish are good for spring, Large painted buckets or cans can look very attractive in the right setting.

There was only one comment on this thread that turned the discussion from friendly banter into something more problematic and guess where it came from.

Fairy, I've found the seeds, now I realise why I didnt use them, they were violas and I didnt like the colour, have no idea why I bought them.  But I can now sow the columbines.  Oh by the way they were with my cookery books. Don't ask.

Lovely photos Dove,  I also loved the Rudbeckia and Aster Photo and although I'm not a red fan the passion flower was beautiful.

Hi everyone, Sunny but misty here, hopefully the grass wont be too wet, need to mow it before my marathon Nanny Duty stint, it starts tonight and I'm going to be limbering up later ready for the week.

Havent seen the photos yet of the day out will take a look in a minute. 

Verdun what a good uncle you are.  Ive planted some white foxgloves for next year, they are in a really shady patch so Im hoping they brighten it up.

Glad to see you back OL, enjoy your day in the garden.

Off for a browse, see you later.
