    Thistle, do you always plant a pot and then put it inside those big ceramic ones? Is this so the roots don't get "cooked"?

    The simple answer is no. The top pots are planted directly into them as is.
    But the other two would have taken a tremendous amount of soil because they're so deep. I have to remove all the soil from the pots every fall and store it in the tool shed.

    I love this one with the heuchera and the tan pot. The neutral colors and the form are very artistic!

    Thanks for the pics, and great info....WOW those are beautiful combinations! I love them! ...and I have got to get better with the foliage plants. I have started coleus from seed, what other foliage plants can be started from seed? And I have heucheras that should be divided, dang, I never thought of that. Thanks!

    I love bacopa, but it was so pricey at the few places that had it here I didn't buy any this year. Pretty and carefree, next year I may have to splurge a bit.

    What a gorgeous patio garden! ... and from seed, great job!
    I have trouble with petunia starts, I have pinchphobia, and I think you have to pinch them to get a better plant. Those are beautiful, and I love the stair planter!

    Finally took pics of a few of mine. I mostly stick whatever I have started from seed into planters on the deck ... Geraniums were purchased from the high school FFA plant sale, such a hot fuchsia, they almost hurt the eyes ...so cool!
    I overdid it with the alyssum this year, it's everywhere!, and I gave a bunch away...

    Impatiens and trailing lobelia by the back door - north side of the house so it's mostly shaded ...

    There is just enough space between the sidewalk along the side of the house and the fence for pots. The angel wing begonias keep coming back every year and I just add a coleus to this pot. photo (22).JPG

    Beautiful Lavender! I don't think you can overdo allysum, it brightens up everything you mix it with. I so admire the fact that you start them all from seed.

    Is that an "eyeball" flower? I can't remember the real name, but I took a look at them last winter in a seed catalog. Very interesting bloom!
