I just recently discovered that sometimes it is more frugal to purchase baskets of plants already potted up than to do your own. Maybe all of you already know this, but I have always considered it much more expensive to buy the potted plants. Today I bought two of these ipomea (sweet potato vine) hanging baskets at Home Depot. They were $5.97 each. There are 3 nice sized plants in each basket.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
