I need to take a few pix of this years containers! Things are looking good...

I like how you framed your picture.
Thanks ! I have become pretty good with image editors and now make a habit of sampling a color from the image to use as a border , with flowers I take the Brightest , boldest color :mrgreen:

Re: Container gallery

Very nice! I keep losing my bleeding heart. I guess I still haven't found the ideal spot for them. I have the wilder native kind but the cute heart-shaped one didn't come up yet again this spring. :(

Here's may strawberry jar. I keep trying something different -- this year, I planted the lettuce and rocket on the NE side, and put French thyme, marjoram, oregano, Aztech broccoli (a lambs quarters relative) on the sunny hot side.

I was waiting to see if the Greek oregano that grew on the top last year would come back but it's looking really wimpy (those are mostly weeds), so I think I'll dig all that out and try planting one or two of the Alpine strawberry seedlings that I started this winter.

Re: Container gallery

My pots are starting to fill in! I had enough creeping jenny from one of last year's pots that I was able to divide it up to go in 5 or 6 pots.

Re: Container gallery

Very nice! I need to explore more container growing. I gave up on it years ago, but am slowly coming around to the idea after finding ways to make watering them easier.

I do like having some containers on the back patio off the kitchen so I could dash out and pick an ingredient when needed. Here's my windowbox of salad fixin's Image

Re: Container gallery

I do love my containers. The tomatoes and Swiss Chard I love to eat, but most of my containers are flowers. Sometimes I like to take an unusual container and plant it with flowers.
This grill belonged to my Mother-in-law. I plant it with something different evey year.

This year I have a red/yellow theme

Re: Container gallery

I always enjoy seeing other gardeners containers. This year has been very wet here, so I wasn't as wowed with how my containers did as I was last year. Actually I wasn't impressed much at all with my garden this year. Some individual containers were great but put all together...not so much.

Some of the good ones
