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!
HellloooOOOo Joey!! havent seen any recent posts from you my friend. I hope you are doing well. Spring is just around the corner and new life will burst forth and light up your beautiful garden! Winter dulldrums are getting to me here too... hang on, the work/pleasure will be here soon!
"Unfortunately we lose them about November and can't grow much except with heat under lights until sun returns in March. Petunias especially need some heat to start them again in January here. A mild winter I can sometimes save one but…"
"Elizabeth, that one is Quasar. It's my first year with it and I think it's a winner! All these get various amounts of morning sun even though there's a tree above & in front, I still have to water them daily due to wilting by noon…"
"I water at least once every hot day and fertilize with water soluble at least once a week, sometimes more when temperatures and sun are full blast as they were in June and July. They do not get full south sun either---either east or west is what I…"
