Queen Vic planter


Queen Vic planter

My neighbour gave me this planter so have put the Stipa Gigantica in it. Its has been remarked this resembles a Victorian style planter so cheers to the Saxe-Coburg Goths everywhere : /

It was arranged with the same aristocratic taste.

Looks really great, very old and unusual ... Nicely planted. The thing that really caught my eye Stevie, I acquired an old planter a few months back, it too is very old and has quite similar pattern on it. Take a look at my photo (no. 5) if you have a minute.

Stevie, is your Stipa in flower yet? Had mine for two years now and no grasses as yet!

No I thought it was just about to start before I planted it up. But yes, I mean no, nothing yet and doesn't look like its going to. Maybe just putting on more root. It was a very tight in its last pot so maybe that why it flowered the lat couple of years. But not fussed it looks good like this anyways : )
