14 was a Saturday and found us once more at
Annie's Garden for another container planting
session. Ingrid, Louise and myself, Linda
attended the early Saturday morning
Annie's is always a beautiful place to spend the
morning and her assortment of plants and herbs
are always a delight for the senses.
I spent a few minutes chasing a butterfly around
trying to get a picture of it...and then it was
time to pay attention to Patricia's informative
Today's lesson was on Apple Basket Container
Gardens...and we learned how to make complete
butterfly habitats in one Apple bushel basket.
Patricia said the baskets are treated and if
left outdoors, should last about three years in
the Florida weather.
We followed the same 3
container garden elements, using the "thriller,
filler and spiller" plant arrangment.
It was fun...I had my apple basket and Ingrid
had hers and Louise did some plant browsing
while we were busy.
After we had finished, Annie's Garden plant
assistant, Helen, helped us get our baskets onto
a cart and Ingrid told Helen that next time, we
would wear our pearls just like Helen wears hers
to the garden.
Two apple container baskets pretty much filled
up the back of Ingrid's van...so you might think
we had our fill and went home....but noooooooooo..........we
had to go to Duncheon's Nursery.
We needed MORE Plants...and Duncheon's has a
large variety of plants you just can't find at
the big box stores.
So we really filled up the van and had just
enough room to squeeze Louise in....and then we
Another fun filled day with Annie's Garden Shed
