When I began my small gardening hobby, I didn’t think that I would collect plants as fast as I did or even considered running out of space. Both happened in a small amount of time. As I continued to feed my new addiction, I looked into vertical gardening for a time, but since the outside walls don’t seem to support much, I gave up on the idea. Soon after I started researching gardening shelves and other ways to save space while enjoying my garden. Keep on reading!
Several months ago I found some odd occurrences happening in my garden. Several of my pots had what looked like holes in the dirt. There was also evidence of what looked like an animal had dug through some of my plants. My new lavender was also flattened, as if something had fallen in it.
I live in an area surrounded by trees, so I figured all of this was caused by falling branches or small animals. It shouldn’t have surprised me when I heard some noises outside and saw a squirrel laying on one of my planters. Keep on reading!
Fuchsias are plants with beautiful hanging flowers that are available in a variety of colors. They look great when planted in the ground or from a hanging planter. I bought my hanging fuchsias from Home Depot late last summer.
Hello everyone! Welcome to my site and first post! As I’ve said before, this site is dedicated to my fellow gardeners who have limited space and budget to work with. Feel free to email suggestions on what you would like to see on here as well!
I’ll start with something basic. I first started with a small pot, some dirt, and a plant! I received this amaryllis as a bulb from a good friend of mine. Although this is just one plant, it adds beauty and color to an otherwise dull outside space.
The pot is made of plastic, so it was very inexpensive. Dirt is also inexpensive and I was able to get the bulb for free, so this setup was very budget friendly.
