I was raised by a man who could make anything grow and flourish, but Daddy did not pass those genes on to me!
I try, and when I find a good spot that gets the right amount of sun ... I stick to that location!
I cluster plants in one of those good spots on the back deck and here is this year's results! I have to admit ... plants seemed to be much more expensive this year than they were last year ... so I waited for a half price sale!
