Here are my containers of Blue Star Petunias and trailing lobelia (white & blue), I lined them up side by side for quick planting...
And then set them into the wall. They grow well here with just morning sun, the petunias get nice & tall and the lobelia trails over the wall. In the daff bed below I planted some Tiger Eye Gold Rudbeckia and Yellow Snapdragons, I bought too many so...
I planted a few extra containers for the sunroom wall, there are some blue lobelia tucked in as well.
I always do a barrel planter with the same plants as the wall containers (blue star etc), and a Dracaena for height.
Remember my 3 matching pots? I've planted romaine lettuce into the big one, patio tomatoes in middle one, and soem strawberries into the little one. I don't think they get enough sun tucked into the corner here, but I haven't found a great spot for them yet.
I thought I was done, but then found a Tomatoberry plant at a hardware store, I remember seeing an article in a magazine about this new plant, and it looks very pretty. I suspect this pot will be too small, I'll find a better home for it later on.
Does this count as container planting? I like having a cedar in a pot on the porch. I tried to dig last years in at the end of the season, but it didn't make it through the winter.
