Summer is here at last! The lilies are blooming, the Hostas are at their peak and are forming buds, and the crocosmia is already in full bloom. There are so many varieties of Hostas. These pictured below are a variety that don a gigantic chartreuse leaf. I’ve never seen a hosta plant that is this large growing in a garden pot. I maintain these garden pots for a customer of mind; obviously I am doing something right. If you have hostas in your garden pots, you might consider keeping them as the show piece. I’ve under planted this hosta with two varieties of creeping jenny, and then surrounded them with white impatiens. A lovely combo indeed! Enjoy your summer garden pots in the coming weeks. They are at their peak…
What are you loving about your summer garden pots? This one has snapdragons, petunias & geraniums – all of the great classics. And, the colors work so well together, just strong bold reds and yellows.
It’s finally summer in Seattle. When it gets over 80 degrees during our typically dry months of July and August, Lollie Fleur recommends watering your garden pots every day. And, hanging baskets twice a day. Plants have tender roots and will quickly wick up water stored in wet soil. As we enjoy these warmer days, be sure to water frequently. Your plants will love you, and your neighbors could have a case of jealousy when your potato vine is busting at the seams.
