We all know everyone has a good and a bad side, and so do plants! Thus, I’ve added a new sub-menu to my blog called Troublemakers Turned Stars. Visit this page and my Pinboards to see more images and photos of the plants discussed. If you have questions, just let me know – I’ll share my plant experience to date with you – or perhaps you have a story to share how the plant caused you some trouble in your gardens or landscape. But the point of this information is many plants which are troublemakers in the garden have the opposite effect in container gardens and patio pots. They turn into star performers – so why not use them to capitalize on their bad side? You will be amazed how useful and attractive they become.
See my Page, Troublemakers Turned Stars, to read the details, why the plants are problems or a nuisance in the garden, yet turn into star performers in container gardens and patio pots. More will be added routinely to keep you ‘posted.’
