Did you know...that you should never plant an orchid directly into a metal or glazed pot??  Orchids leaves and roots are extremely sensitive to those materials and your orchids will not flourish in them, or even worse die.

Always plant the orchid in a plastic or non glazed clay pot, then put that in your decorative pot.

Pink Astilbes and Ferns

"Thanks Charlotte and Lorraine. These astilbes and ferns are against the north side of the house, so they are in shade most of the day. Lorraine, you're right that astilbes (and ferns) will scorch if they get too much hot sun."
