"Joseph I see you have the plant we call 'Million Bells' in the hanging basket on the left. I find them so hardy and just flower year after year. What is the climber in the centre, is it a form of Sweet Pea?"
Joseph, thanks for sharing your pics of the Philly Flower show. Looks like they had a lot of beautiful plants and displays. I especially loved the head planters and those beds of daffodils. Makes me long for spring -- will it ever get here?
Joseph...that will look great on a fence! I hope it works well for you and take some photos to share if you decide to try it! Just a little tip...be prepared to water almost every day once it takes off...It was a dry summer that year and I had to water it twice a day at times!
Thanks Joseph...the sweet potato vine was supported with just fishing line...as the vine grew I would just wrap the runners around the line. It was a total of 4 plants, one on each end in the trough planters and 2 in the center trough on each end. As I had mentioned earlier, I had also used morning glory to do this same effect but the sweet potato filled in much faster with much more fullness, not to mention the bright lime color is more showy!
Thanks so much Joseph! It would be great having neighbors that love to garden as much as we do! Your gardens are so gorgeous...you can tell how much you love it and care for it. Seeing your pix, I can certainly appreciate the amount of labor, time, and thought you have put toward your place! Happy to become friends here!
"You should wait til the 25th to have them come and plant a bunch of above ground growers the 20th or 21st to show them how quickly things grow at the right moon cycle. The next new moon is the 24th.

"Its a girl, and I will teach her the Botanical names right from the start, so she does not to re learn them. I find people who are very fluent with plants names where taught by a parent or grandparent, who called plants by their botanical name and…"
"Your osteopermum look so lovely planted en mass. I can barely keep them blooming here. The fence finished just in time for everything to start climbing on it. Bravo! How many weeks of spring do you get before summer hits?
