|Pots, lots of pots. With pots you can place them among other blooms, unless, of course, you want to plant them all together which is also beautiful. |
I'm fascinated with them. And they are so easy to grow. And since it was my first year to have them, I thought planting in pots would be the best way for me. Now that I know what I'm doing (!) I might change my mind next summer and make some raised beds for them. I think they would be so pretty planted together in a mound. Our hot summer sun hasn't bothered them, though I do have to water frequently. Your area might be warmer than mine but humidity also helps them.

|Our area is certainly wetter so no problem watering them,..slugs would be my only problem though i do keep them at bay plus i have a Hedgehog who eats slugs|

|Really? A hedgehog? I've never seen one.|
I enjoyed your Spain/ Sea/ Me video. Great music, too.
Also love the Hollyhocks. Guess I should put that on a thread that connects to the blog post.

|There are two adult Hedgehogs though there may be youngsters as well from the two adults as i spotted a young one last week,..they have poor eyesight,..mostly come out at night and eat lots of slugs and cat food.|
I have two short videos of the Hedgehog in Photobucket but can not find the link just now,..will do so another time,..meanwhile a picture to help.

|Oh my! That little guy is just purely cute! Bet he doesn't get his back scratched very often. We are so hot and dry here . . . in spite of the humidity . . . I haven't seen slugs in years. Not even a slimy sign of one.|
Thanks for the photo!
