|FROM WILMA: |
This season I have helped out at the farm greenhouses – watering, transplanting, and occasionally creating container gardens. Container gardens are fun to play with in the garden and can be used in multiple ways. Vegetables, flowers, herbs and vines can all work together to create wonderful scents and sights!
Now - while there’s still a good selection of beautiful plants - is a great time to put together eye-popping container gardens for the summer months! A new pot can add a colorful accent to your front entryway or anywhere you want height and drama.
