|A variety of container plants.. just potted up about 10 days|
ago.. imagine what they will look like in a month!
Yet before I share the update with you, I should first offer some background info.. I do blog for Proven Winners (as you can see from the 'button' on the righthand side of my blog page). That means that I write a monthly blog on their website (My blog link) and they also send me several boxes of plants to test each year. This is how garden writers/media know whether many of the 'new' plants are worth their potting soil!
I do get paid to write the monthly blog for PW, but they don't pay me to say nice stuff, rather to voice my opinion.. so, if I don't like a particular plant, I will say so. On the other hand, if I love how any of the plants do in my Maritime garden, I will also share that..
|I am LOVING this new 'spiller', 'Frosty Knight'|
Lobularia on the left.. check out the funky
variegated leaves! And it does flower too..
delicate lacy blooms in creamy white. That
is a red lettuce in the middle - love leaf
lettuce in my pots.
Also, as the summer progresses, I will keep you posted on how these plants do.. will they put up with the sometimes endless fog and wet weather or if by some miracle, the summer is long and hot, can they deal with the blazing heat.. stay tuned to find out! :)

|Here's a close up of Lobularia 'Blushing Princess'.. love|
the subtle hint of pink!

|Cleome Senorita Blanca.. it grows 2 to 4 feet tall, making it|
a great 'thriller' in a large pot or plant it in clumps for non-stop
bloom in the flower border.

Slice close up.. I really like the striped flowers and the
vigorous growth.. I'll keep you updated on how they perform
with the coming summer weather!
