Today was a much cooler day so I decided I needed to give my pots a refresh
All hanging pots were taken down. Spiderwebs cleaned and fresh compost added. A good water and they are good for another year.
The pots in the ground were clipped back. More compost was added and they too are great for a while. although I think im going to need to clean the cream pots they look dirty in these pics
Living next door to a nursery is dangerous.the nice young man unloaded a new batch of pots and one was damaged. He can’t sell it. So told hubby to give it to me.
How lovely only now I needed a plant to put into it.
This is what we came home with. Hubby had to come back and get the car lol
The middle pot was the freebie
The big blue and cream pots in the back of the car were a set of four. He only had one set of each left. So he gave them to me for below cost. They had broken sauces in the packs. So again couldn’t really be sold.
Of course that meant more plants Hubby was worse than I was. He sent me back for more plants. He wanted all pots planted out
The smallest of the pots were added here. Not all of them have plants as yet. I’ll go through my seed stock and see what’s in there
Couldn’t decide if I wanted to mix colours So for now we have a blue side and a cream side. I’ll think about it
And finally a plant given to me from my friend, before she moved to Queensland, Needed a new pot. The one it was in started to fall apart.
I originally went next door to get a new hanging pot.
Didn’t get a shot of the old hanging basket. But from the one plant I now have four.
The new hanging pot won’t fall apart and won’t dry out as quick.
Meanwhile some old pots were washed and now have new plants
I love buying plants, but I really love making new ones of my own
So the front looks lovely and lush again.
And the best part. We didn’t have to travel far, while supporting a very local business.
Gotta love that
