The memsahib wants a planter..
« on: May 18, 2019, 11:43 »
and like a good hubby, it's in production.  It's to go in a corner of the bungalow (externally) that never gets the sun although the light is bright,  It's (lots of it's)  facing North.

So the quest is on for interesting/colourful plants for this situation.  Over to the knowledgeable members on this site.

Cheers,  Tony. :)

How about Hostas, lots of varieties and colours, also Heuchera and Tiarellas again, good colours.    Spring, plant some white bedding along the front of it, this always give a good bright pop of colour.  Busy Lizzies and Begonias come to mind.  Oh, also ferns, lots of lovely selection and textures.  Talking of planters, see my next post  :lol:  Good Luck,  Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

Many thanks mrs bouquet, 

I'll make a list of your suggestions and scuttle off to the G.C. after the weekend (after tracking down a picture or two.  Who would be mad enough to go on a saturday or worse still Sunday! :ohmy:

Cheers,  Tony.

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
