Get Your Potted Plants off the Ground!Get Your Potted Plants off the Ground!
By Gymgirl, June 28, 2016

Build a simple "Planter Pallet" out of free, recycled, or reclaimed materials, to keep tree roots from invading your potted plants. The pallet also helps your containers drain better, because they aren't sitting flush on the surface! These are great for patio containers, and may be cut into various shapes to suit your fancy!

By csandt on Jul 1, 2016 1:19 PM, concerning plant: Japanese Laurel (Aucuba japonica 'Picturata')

The large solid yellow center of the leaves is the most attractive feature of Picturata. However, in my garden, this plant has reverted to all leaves with small yellow spots instead of a large yellow center.

Great slow-growing shrub for dry shade. It is very easy to root cuttings taken August - November in water.

By Deebie on Jun 30, 2016 4:46 PM, concerning plant: Lantana (Lantana camara 'Cream Carpet')

I have had this plant in my zone 8a garden for several years. It dies down to the ground, but comes back faithfully each spring, even if I do not give it extra protection during our winters. It is not a large plant. In fact it's a short mounding plant. Butterflies love it, but so do whiteflies in late summer. Other than that, it's a great low-maintenance plant and I highly recommend it.

By GeoCoppens on Jun 30, 2016 10:54 AM, concerning plant: Passionflower (Passiflora pinnatistipula)

I fully agree that P. pinnatistipula is an accepted plant name, but these pictures do not represent P. pinnatistipula (please compare with the entry for Passiflora pinnatistipula 'Donna Brigham'). This is Passiflora tarminiana Coppens & Barney (please read the species'authorship, you will understand that I am particularly competent for this determination). Best,
Geo Coppens
