Melissa's Container Gardens--mid July report!

Melissa of Skillin's Falmouth has stopped in periodically here and then here to update us on her Container Gardening. Melissa has given out loads of great advice in teaching about container gardening and much follow up advice with so many customers.

Here is what Melissa wrote to me a couple of days ago:

"After looking at the posting from a couple of weeks ago I couldn't believe how much the garden has changed!

The tomato plants have gone from some flowers to many tomatoes!
(Some nice tomatos well on their way!)

Lettuce keeps going along, the beets are getting bigger by the day, green peppers are going crazy! I just love the way all the flowers I planted in the garden are producing some wonderful colors .
(Melissa has done a great job growing and mixing vegetables and flowers; look at that lush lettuce at the bottom of the picture!)

And talk about color - the "Pretty Much Picasso" superbells I planted are pretty much taking over the railing boxes! They are just stunning, and I highly recommend planting some - they especially look good when planted with some light pink bacopa and millionbells.
(The Pretty Much Picasso in action!--it is a showstopper; we think it looks fantastic!)

Oh and one of the best things I love about container gardening - NO WEEDING!

Happy container gardening
