We have a few planting areas around our yard but for most of my summer flowers I go with container gardening. These “pots” came from my Grandpa Olson’s garage. I love this wagon and it will soon have a great mix of flowers spilling over the edges.
When I fill them with flowers every spring I am reminded of Grandpa’s advice to always pinch the buds off a flowering plant to promote the plant’s growth. Tough advice to follow, but I always do.
I am also trying a small herb garden for the first time this summer. Basil, chives, cilantro and mint. Have you planted an herb garden? share your thoughts in the comments below!
