Forming a garden club is not difficult. All it calls for is two people who love to garden and "tadaaa" a garden club is born!
My friend, Gail, and I have decided to create a sedum planting for our first "event." The assignment was to reuse something from our stash of containers for the planter. Gail found two planters that were given to her and had been tucked away for years. They are perfect. I chose an old tin wash basin and a oil drain pan. It is metal. Neither of us had containers with holes for drainage, so we layered rocks first, and then added a rich soil that contained fertilizer. I believe it is called Black Gold. Sedum's do just fine with this kind of planting as long as they aren't over watered. I spray mine down each morning before the sun reaches them. Sedum grow well in a semi-sun/shade location.
I added a small clay pot and filled it with pebbles. It is tucked deep into the soil and the plants will encroach around it very quickly.
Our second garden club project was to plant clay pots with geraniums, grass and small yellow cascading daisies.
The combination of color picks up the brown in our house and the arrangement pops with brightness!
We are off on our garden club adventure! Who knows what we'll do next but we have talked about using a mass of purple pansies.......we'll see and I will share!
