Late Spring plantings

Standard


Best Pots of the year so far, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

I have these pots right near one of the seating areas outside. Seems the coleus like the dapples of sun they get here. I’ve have these black kettle flower pots for years. Besides Coleus, there are Pinwheel Zinnias, White Petunias and Blue Lobelia. I’m still potting up a few things and adding some annuals here and there for a surprise of color.
There are things that I’m not happy with-so much things are getting munched on and I have to spray here and there. Branches need trimming and don’t get me started on the weeding! I haven’t mulched. You think I would have learned to wait until the Chestnut trees dumps their catkins which are so messy. I wish we could get those trees cut back sometime.

  1. Love the combination of plants you have in those pots. Isn’t it so frustrating when you have to battle whatever is eating the plants…I’m keeping a close eye on my lilies because I have some type of bug that resembles a lady bug eating the leaves. Spraying it once a week seems to be helping. I’m also having issues with slugs….ugh! xoxo
