I would be interested in seeing pics of people's gardens. I live in North central Florida. Everything in ours is in pots because we have no gardens in the ground around the house.

My red potatoes. Starting some blue potatoes in a pot also, but no photos yet.


Sempervivum:





A little peach tree I started from a peach pit - that actually sprouted inside the peach! Which is why I just HAD to plant it. No idea how it will grow in Ohio, or if it will bear any fruit - but oh well.


I have LOTS of Amaryllis in containers!;



I grow my peppers in containers too:


Christmas cactus spends winters in the office, but the rest of the year outdoors:

And THIS container arrangement (from the Naples Florida Botanical Garden) is SPECTACULAR - yes, they are all in individual containers!

I purchased a peach tree and put it in a large pot. The tree had buds for only one year. It did not grow so much. Then one year I saw that the tree part looked dead. Then the peach tree started growing out from the roots. So now it is more like a little bush with about 4 branches coming out with stems from the base of the plant. It has a few leaves on it, but no fruit. Had it for about 3 years. Just waiting to see if it does anything else.

I probably had no business planting that pit. Ohio not the best place for peach trees, and growing from a pit, I might not have any fruit at all - if it actually grows to full size. But since it sprouted inside the peach, I just felt compelled. I guess we can at least compare peach trees/twigs/bushes though. Rolling on the floor laughing

I like to keep a lot of potted plants and they go on journeys around my garden at various times of year Smiling I upcycled my children's garden bench to elevate them...

And I just upcycled an old BBQ and planted a hosta in it so I'm hoping it'll work out!

Lovely container gardens. That tower from the Naples Florida Botanical Garden is outstanding! It's too early for my pots to look like much but I have a few shots from last year. I grow a lot of caladiums in 3 envelope planters in my driveway and also have a stacking tower planter that I use for coleus each year.

I live in NJ on a Christmas Tree Farm and much of the farm is all Christmas Trees, so I keep my favorites in Containers and move them in and out of the greenhouse when the seasons change. Here are a few of my favorites. Beside my feed barn I have the Jasmine, Snake plants, Lenten Rose, curly willow and Tea Olive by the birdbath.

I would be totally lost without containers considering I am 90 years old and limited in my actual gardening. It is the perfect way to garden for older or disabled people also.

My entire vegie garden is also in containers...enjoy your day. God Bless!

Thanks Peggy
I have made these for a number of years. They are module and 4 sides and bottom bolt together for a square or as many sides as you want for a larger box.
You can also leave the bottom off and just sit it on top the soil
