On March 8, 2016 My Bride and I participated in a Pine Ridge Garden Club Field Trip to Coweta Greenhouses, Inc. near Newnan, Georgia. This is the Greenhouse that produces the lovely potted plants that you see at Kroger Food Stores here in Middle Georgia. Yesterday we acquired three Dummen Potunia (Trade Mark Registered) Series Petunia pots at Kroger on Tom Hill Jr. Blvd. here in Macon, Georgia. Today it was my pleasure to place these loving looking flowers in three planters. I followed the directions that came with the plants.
|This is a close up view of the Athletic Shirt I used to make the drain hole covers in the Planters.|
|Here I placed a double layer of the former Wife Beater Shirt in the bottom of the planter so that excess water could drain through the drain holes.|
|I then placed about four inches of rock on top of the Shirt to give the base of the Planter some weight so they would not blow over in a strong wind.|
|The next step was to place Packing Peanuts about ten inches deep so that the completed Planters would not be too heavy. This will allow the planters to be moved around.|
|This is a view of the completed Planter Project. Three Planters in a Row on the edge of the Deck. I am looking forward to the beauty that these Petunias provide My Bride and I this Summer!!!|
