We bought all the less-expensive, light large pots left in Target. We put a tall white and green grass in one of them, and a pink lilly in the other. We also have a few smaller pots: one with a cedum and chocolate colored hens and chick, the other with a small beachy grass with little purple flowers.
I spent most of yesterday afternoon at the Liberty Sunset Garden Center in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The two people there were very busy. I think they crowds were bigger than they had planned for, and the space is so huge it is difficult to get your bearings. But the team there were helped us to pick out a variety of plants and we’ll see what lives.
I would like to do one or two big pots. I can see how addicting and expensive gardening can get. I’m wondering if basil and mint could take the wind and the heat up there? I’m testing one tiny rosemary plant tucked into a corner of a planter now.
