The Picket Fence Planter was our first garden project of 2011!
The planter was a gift from my husband a few years ago. I just love that thing! All of the plants were purchased (for next to nothing!) at one of the nearby Amish greenhouses:
2 Spike plants
2 Trailing variegated vinca
3 White "Snow Crystals" alyssum (from 6 pack)
3 "Super Olympia" mix begonia (from 4 pack)
4 Impatiens (from 6 pack)
The remaining flowers, and a 3rd spike plant, will be planted in an old brown glazed crock purchased from an auction. It will be a great accent in another corner of the porch. The flowers I originally bought for this planter turned out to be sun-loving and would not have been happy here on the covered porch. So, instantly I have a second project (or is that now a third project?)... a Lamppost Flower Bed!
