1. Ah! I’m so jealous of your sunshine! We just got buried under our 900th snowstorm of the winter. I have a hard time with containers, too. My sister’s always turn out beautifully. She tells me it’s because she plants her seeds in a pot and then sets that pot inside another pot with a thin layer of gravel in between and she keeps the gravel area full of water so that the roots of the plant don’t get too hot. I can’t argue with her results. Her plants are gorgeous. I’ve never tried it myself, though.

      That’s a good tip! I recently saw an article where the woman used empty water bottles in the bottom of her pots.

  2. Look at those hands covered in dirt. I have been dreaming about getting my hands in the dirt, have to wait till all this snow melts. I wish I had some tips for you, I have never tried container gardening, we use raised beds. Have fun!

      I love the look of raised beds, but we don’t have space here, so containers it is. I’m looking at some succulents to add this year.

  3. I should have planted the seeds for my flowers (I’m planting a natural dye garden to dye yarn) this past weekend but we got busy. Hopefully next weekend. I think we may have to do some raised beds for them. Our property is pretty small so we have to fit things in where we can. Good luck on your containers. I don’t have much of a green thumb either so I understand what you are saying!
