This weekend I added a few more lovelies to the pots. I noticed some space that needed filling. So while I was last in the plant store falling for a rose, I picked up a couple of annuals too.
One thing I love about Proven Winners is their easy summer time grab & go potting packs. Containing a nicely designed scheme of half a dozen plants ready to pop into any container. I mean common! Can they make it any easier for me? Plus I love a bargain, and combo packs are always that! I picked up a pack of assorted white annuals to stuff the final corners out of the urns that flank the doors.
Previously planted in the urns:
- 2 x Miniature roses ‘Hot Tamale’
- 2 x Dracaena Spikes
- 2 x Winter Pansies (yup, my winter Pansies are still alive and well. To top it off I have not dead headed them in months, yet there there are blooming like crazy town! Shhh, don’t tell!)
Added to these pots this weekend:
- 2 x Proven Winners Laguna White
- 2 x Proven Winners Diamond Frost
The rose bushes have lots of buds on them! I’m looking forward to quite a show this month from these pots!
The remaining pair of plugs from the half dozen pack were, Proven Winners Supertunia White which filled helped fill out some pots I was sprucing up for the front patio garden.
I had trouble walking by the Proven Winners Supertunia Pretty Much Picasso at the store that day. I’ve been admiring this beauty in friends baskets & planters all summer. When I found this plant, with it’s strong branches bursting with buds, with only one or two already open, I snapped it up! It should be quite fetching! Bursting with purple blooms from the top shelf of my patio garden. Touched with green! What a fantastic colour combo!
Once potted I got these little gems upstairs. I will probably pot up a few more annual for those patio shelves in the coming days. They are instant colour, especially while I’m waiting for my tomato baskets to start ripening. I’m in need of a little colour up there.
These will do.
