I stopped by for a visit in mid-April when Karen hosts an event called Plant your own Pot Day. You bring in your pot and make the mess there. Clever! We’re so ready for some flowers by then. You can bring your favorite pot or pots, use her dirt, choose flowers and get a jump start on a beautiful summer container. She’ll even keep it in her greenhouse until the weather permits you to put it out at your home.
I was impressed with the variety of plants she has in just a couple of green houses. My fav – the succulents! I started a succulent garden in a few stacked pots last year and fell in love. Karen has a great selection of succulents. My pots are in a shady area under a large pine next to the deck; succulents make a such a nice container. Of course, they are to be treated as annuals in Zone 4, but they’ll over-winter nicely.
I plan on attending Succulent Sundays to choose a few more plants to add to my pots. The 1st and 3rd Sundays in May and June are set aside for you to make a succulent container. If you need pots, she has them. Stop by and try a succulent container this year.
Have you discovered succulent plants? Which ones do you love most? A favorite of mine is Cerveza ‘n Lime (Plectranthrus). When you rub the leaves they smell like lime. 😀
