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!
"Thank you Clare :)
Believe it or not, it's just organics.
Early Spring: Corn gluten (This is a pre-emergent weed control)
Early Summer: Alfalfa pellets, also used as small animal food (Slow-release Nitrogen)
"Lorraine, this is the first year we've planted tulips in a long time. We gave up on them many years ago because the squirrels would always dig up and eat the bulbs and if any did manage to grow, the deer would eat them. We got around those two…"
