My annual flower pot fluffing ritual revolves around planting my mother’s front porch pot for Mother’s Day. This year for some, quickly forgotten, reason I skimped a little on my usual spending extravaganza and it left me with some sad looking flower pots. When you purchase 2 humungous flower pots at Costco every year for several years running…you can’t expect to skimp on flowers to fill them.
During a visit over lunch with my friend, Joan, she shared the new that our favorite garden designer was once again working at a local nursery…so off to Driver Brothers I flew. Dwayne not only knows his plants, he knows me well enough to be familiar with my lack of gardening expertise…which is a nice way of saying I don’t like to water. These are Dwayne’s suggestions for my flower pots..
All of Dwayne’s selections were made with the comment “very hardy”…he knows they need to survive me.
