A Tower Of Flowers!

I have a project for this weekend. I will be busy trying to figure out how the heck I am going to get this monster out of my greenhouse! I spent the day cleaning it out and up....and then decided to plant a few more pots with some left over plants. This is what I ended up with!


This is what happens when you have lots of pots, and a few plants left over...combine that with a thought that popped into my head about one similar to this that I was in love with that was made from different sized livestock feeders but was VERY expensive. I figured I would make my own version.


Please remember that this is a newly planted pot, or should I say pots...and it needs time to become established! A little time and fertilizer and this baby will look like a flower fountain! At least I hope so!


The bottom pot is 24 inches in diameter and they graduate to a 10 inch pot. All the bottom three are planted with wave petunia. The top two are regular petunia.
Did I mention that I still have to take this out of the greenhouse? ugh. I also have NO idea where in my yard I will put this monster!
Wish me luck!

Until next time…hugs and smiles!
Have a safe and wonderful weekend friends and we shall see you next week!

happy gardening!

What a beauty this is. I know you're wondering where in "your" yard you're going to put it. No worries. Leave that gorgeous plant outside the door and I'll be very quiet picking it up. I promise to take pictures so you can see it via the internet. I know you have a very giving heart and you won't miss this one itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny, little plant. Thanks for sharing all of your knowledge with the rest of us. Wishing you and yours a great w/k. I'm sure we'll be talking. Hugs to you dear heart. Lynne

I can see your flower fountain! It won't be long before the pots are completely hidden. We visit an upscale, open-air mall at the beach that has something like this on a larger scale in square, wooden planters, but the flowers don't cascade down the bottom row. I think it has seats on the front and back. You are such a creative gardener! Fieldstone/Pam

I have a direct flight out..ha! Now where exactly in your yard are you planning to place it Tootsie? Have a good weekend!

Hey Toots just making sure my planter is still there haha!! do you have Justine new blog site addy? would love to welcome her to blogland. Hope all is well in Tootsville today. hugs and smiles

Hi Toots: I see the fountain planter is still here so I gather you are going to keep it? As much as I would love it, I really didn't want to have to arm wrestle Gloria, so I guess like Martha would say "its a good thing". Changing the subject, I popped in to MoonlightandMagnolia's RMS Space and seen her floral icecubes. Out of curiosity, do you ever use any of your flowers in recipes? I have a simple recipe for Sugared Flowers which I 've used a few times for decoration/garnishes but find non- chemically treated ones are difficult to come by. With your green thumb, it might be an enterprise that you wish to explore. ( Just a thought. ) -Brenda-
