Gardening in your jammies!

So grab a hot cup of java and join me on the deck while i show you what i got growing!

Got to love container gardening! If you ask someone to tell you what plants they would have on their patio or porch, most often you will hear hanging baskets. Don't get me wrong, I love hanging baskets but have you seen the prices they are asking for them now a days? Nothing under $20 to $30 for the smallest and most common type of blooming flowering baskets. Ouch!

So let's think outside the "box". You can start seeds from scratch and grow your own flowers. That is probably the cheapest way to go, but lots of folks don't want to do that. It's time and space consuming. Maybe they have "black thumb" syndrome and manage to kill off everything they try to grow from seed. OK, how about buying some ready to plant six packs at the garden center and stuffing your own baskets. Still cheaper than buying the fully blooming ready-to-go baskets.

However, I ask you to take a moment and considering what you are spending your hard earned cash on. Annuals...... plants that grow, bloom, go to seed, and die in one season. Pretty, short lived, and then gone forever. 
Or..... you can consider other plants for your containers. Pictured on this page today are blueberries in pot! As you can see, they have flourished and are full of ripening fruit, right on my deck! I step outside and hand picked the ripe ones daily right from the bush to my mouth. And yes, in my jammies! How great is that? Lol

I also have my deck, a blooming Celmatis, a yellow rose bush, a small water feature with aquatic plants in it, and even two apple trees!

Remember, in this hot summer weather, to water more frequently than your land garden as containers dry out quickly, and little nutrition in the form of your favorite fertilizer once a week and you will have happy productive plants for seasons to come!
