I’ve made a lot of progress in the patio gardens. This galvanized garden, or at least that’s what I call it, is filling out nicely.
I go out each evening and see if I need to dead-head flowers or snip a bit. Don’t let your plants get leggy. Cut them back and they will start to show more bushy growth.
If I hadn’t been cutting these back regularly, they would be five feet tall by now.
Rest for the weary:
Charlie Ross having a little rest. You can see my bad groom job. Found out I was going the wrong way with the clippers.
I think I may need to take them back to the groomer who will give them a more professional cut!
Cutting back herbs:
I have cut back these herbs quite a few times, and they just keep growing like crazy.
A mixture of both flowers and herbs in a container has always looked very pleasing to me. And the different scents mixing together is a great reason to mix them.
