Our Flower Bed Made a Huge Impact!

April 19, 2013

These three photos fall in the “I can hardly believe it category”.  We planted this flower bed when we lived in Ohio.  Here are the details:

First:  We mixed a couple of inches of Miracle Gro Moisture Control Garden Soil into the existing soil in the bed.

Second:  We planted these plants:

  • 1-Red Banana
  • 3-Purple Threadleaf
  • 3-Pennisetum “Rubrum”
  • 3-Coleus “Morning After”
  • 3-Carex “Amazon Mist”
  • 3-Peperomia “Silver Ripples”

And Third:  We then fed with Osmocote Flower & Vegetable Plant Food.

These three photos show the dramatic results:

Stand back Rita... I don't know how big it's gonna get!  Our flower bed on October 6, five months after planting.

    I think you mean “huge” impact. Although Hugh probably liked it. :)
