Imagine yourself relaxing on the patio after work, sipping your evening beverage, looking around at the beautiful glossy green plants with perky little flowers and you reach over and pluck off a ripe strawberry and pop it into your mouth. Then you close your eyes and inhale the aroma of your herb garden spilling out of their colorful pots, thinking about the next recipe you'll be needing them for and smile at the beauty of using cabbage and lettuce as focal points in your plantings. You walk over to your climbing tomato vines and assist a few new strands to wrap around their trellis on their reach for sunlight and freedom. You snack on a couple cherry tomatoes and realize your gazebo has never looked so good. Healthy plants always look great, whether they are out in the field, or up close and personal in your living space.
Patio time has become one of our favorite pastimes for decompressing and sharing stories about our day. I often use this time to examine all the plantings to check for any issues that need to be addressed. My plants thrive in this environment with all the attention, premium soil, ability to be moved in or out of shade and frequent watering. The plants (and produce) are very clean, having been kept off the ground and with no mudsplash from heavy rains, there are few losses.
- Easy to water
