A Favorite Hot Basket


A Favorite Hot Basket

Part of an order I planted for the hotel, the groundkeeper gives me free rein. The white ageranthemums have just started, but I had to get a shot as she was picking them up.

It's a lucky soul who can work at what they love - you seem to have found a great spot for yourself!

Very nice! My hanging baskets always look so terrible, I've given up on even trying them.

Counting myself lucky every day. I love it! Thanks to GOY for all the extended knowledge i can present to keep it too.

Thanks Lauram. I had total failure last year, but now with a practiced hand I feel much more confident. No small part is picking the right plant varieties and using their natural habits.

Wonderful basket, Gt - I am in awe of the Coleus foliage.

Thanks David. It is from a wizard series, I think this is fire. It is impressive. I pinched it back twice to get more small leaf tops, more compact so the red begonia would show. Did that with the ageranthemum too.

Thank you all. I have been proud to see things grow in and still look like what i was planning. (doesn't always work out that way). I am planning a trip or two down to see them at the hotel in place and after more season. I'll get some updates.

Love all your baskets Greenthumb. Been through a lot of your photos. Nice to see the blue iris growing wild in your area.

Thank you so much. Hope you've enjoyed. :-) I got a good wild show this year that I still need to post. Some other great species. To come. :-)

Shall look forward to them, I suppose the plants grow quick because of the daylight hours being so few during the year.
