You did 26 containers in 6 hours!
I am lucky to do that many in a week or two!

We do look forward to your pictures of them over the summer.
You have neat combinations of plants-I always intend on copying some of yours.

Lot of work! I tip my hat to you. Eager to see the containers as they progress.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

It was a lot of work and I seriously doubt I will do that much again. I pay for it for days.I will just stick to the deck planters and leave the garden borders alone.

My sister just asked me last week if I had ever planted fan flowers. She is not plant crazy like me but she puts in a few flowers in a small garden area. I had not really noticed them until she asked me about them

I do mostly foliage and perennials I do not use a lot of annual flowers. I buy so few annuals I try to get the biggest bang for my bucks with foliage plants.

Thats a great way to do it. I have never had luck with perennials in containers.

I know my biggest problem is I am cheap. Hilarious! I refuse to order a lot of plants because the shipping is so high and the plants are so little. I go to my local nursery that is only a block away and their annuals are 1.59 for a six pack. Then I hit Lowes go to their markdown rack and get the rest of the annuals for 1.00. I combine the tropical plants that I have stored over the winter from year to year with whatever cheap annuals I have found.
