As promised, here are photos of my planted gold basket! I used an odd basket that looks wooden but is actually metal! I took chicken wire and made the "shelf" then covered all in moss, placed soil and then the plants and finished wish one of Chris's (Goldfinch4) garden art "slugs"
It has several semps, sedums, Aeoniums, and an unknown plant that I think is a type of orchid I tip my hat to you.

That's awesome! The hanging shelf thing is brilliant, gets my idea-generator warmed up. Great job. Is your unknown plant Ledebouria socialis?

Purple, ha yep, you're right! I like the "common name" of "Silver squill" Thanks for the ID! Hurray!
Inside the basket are a bunch more bulblets which I'm excited to see grow! (I just have to remember to keep it consistently moist while they develop...its partly why I made the shelf, so I could have two different growing environments, one drier and sunnier than the lower part Thumbs up
Thanks I tip my hat to you.

This one was just across the road from the hotel. We could hit a few for sure but, I think Lynn will keep us busy visiting nurseries. This one was in Dallas so for sure we have to find one in Salem.

Rolling on the floor laughing Yes she "zoomed" us all over the area to get to nurseries in a limited time frame! Rolling on the floor laughing Bev, hoping you'll join us next year!! It was a fun time, even being in the thrift store with Spring, calling out to one another - hey did you see this?? Hey will this work for what you're looking for? etc. to the point that one of the employees asked us if we wanted one of the plant type things she had in a cart (I think a new item that just came in!) haha
Hurray! Group hug
