If only I could keep flowers alive

planterI found this cute planter while searching for organizing supplies for a post on my organizing blog, that would look nice on my deck and allow portability in a move. And kind of matches the two hanging planters that I used last year, but I killed the flowers I had in it (I haven’t bothered hanging them in the new house). I can’t keep anything alive that doesn’t provide us with food. And ok, that’s becoming questionable too. I still don’t know why all the red taters died while all the russets flourished. Sigh.

    Hi Amy~~ The mysteries of the plant world… Sometimes we never will know why a plant [or ten] bit the dust. I’ve never used this coir-type liner. It seems like they would cause the soil to dry out super fast. Maybe if they were in the shade.

    Here’s to many horticultural successes!!

    Thanks Grace! I think you are right, and that’s why the flowers died so quick on me. I think I only watered them one time though. I’ll blame the planters, it’ll make me feel better 😉

    Very cute planter! I saw one like that in an antique store while in Bend- loved it! I hear you about killing things- I’m an expert. You should see my garden right now. With all the trips I’ve had to take this year things are looking really ragged- weeds, things looking brownish, you name it, I’ve lost control of the garden…blah!
