Potting Up Spring


The weather has been cold and dreary lately, but I took advantage of a sunny day to pot up some spring! Come see how one of our spray painted plastic landscaping pots helped bring some much-needed SPRING color to our garden!

    I use the plastic pots that my plants come into fill the bottom of a large container. A diaper in the bottom also helps keeping it moist during the summer heat.

    For anyone is still reading this post, I wanted to share an idea I saw on TV a long time ago. Empty plastic water bottles were used to fill two huge flower pots to conserve on the amount of soil needed. The pots were being used at the entrance of a home's driveway. Beautiful!
