  • I enjoy the sights and sounds of nature and the restorative powers of GLOVELESS gardening -- getting my hands directly in contact with soil and plants! My backyard landscape is not picture perfect. I enjoy seeing chewed leaf edges, broken stems, disturbed soil …. It’s an indication of nature’s give and take relationship. Lisa K. Schlag

  • I wanted to create a texture-rich hummingbird-oriented container. I included tree limbs, hummingbird feeder, and red flowered plants (Begonia and Cape Fushia, Phygelius capensis). The Thymus ‘Silver Posie’ echos the Cornus alba ‘Ivory Halo’ foliage variegation. Phygelius capensis Thymus vulgaris ‘Silver Posie’ Daisy Cornus alba ‘Ivory Halo’ Dragon Wing Begonia

  • Recycled Containers: Various Tomato plants were underplanted with a variety of herbs and flowering annuals, providing nectar and pollen for beneficial insects, and foliage plants. If you have kitties, kitty litter containers can pile up overtime. I drilled holes for drainage, sponge painted, and used shredded newspaper to mix with soil and for moisture retention.
  •  
  • Painted Container: Planting pink Yarrow, Achillea millefolium, and Ajuga ‘Burgundy Glow’ in the container enhanced the feel of the landscape bedding plants in the background: Kniphofia, Poker Plant; Echinacea, Coneflower; Gaillardia, Blanket Flower; Rudbeckia subtomentosa, Sweet Black-eyed Susan,; and Chasmanthium latifolium, Northern Sea Oats.
  •  
  • I adore Cupid’s Dart, Catananche caerulea. I really enjoyed the texture, color, and wildlife benefits this combination of plants provided. Rudbeckia subtomentosa Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’ Achillea millefolium Catananche caerulea ‘Amor Blue’
