I updated my small space garden photojournal
Neighbors are in the throes of toddlerhood and TTC, so they are going to let us borrow as many of their now-empty pots as we want.
I may end up with a jungle back here!!!
What can I grow now in San Diego? It is late June and our warmest months are still to come (July, August, September, and October...sometimes midway through November, too)..... I'll have some large pots from the neighbors and full sun and partial sun areas to put them.
What would you plant in these colorful pots
They are small and have no drainage hole. I was thinking originally of them being outside because of the lovely colors, but now I don't know what would work in this small of a pot. I was thinking of leaving the plants in the plastic growing pots for drainage and adding a layer of rocks under the plastic pot inside the ceramic pot. Or, I could drill a drainage hole. They seemed bigger in the store.
I could use a couple inside for small houseplants. I could line the front walkway with them, which would look pretty.
What could I put in them that can handle mostly shade and a lot of neglect?
There is no watering source out front and I always forget those poor plants. They are all dead now except my coleus (sp?), which did better last year in the full shade. A couple trees were removed and now there is more light, although it is still diffused most of the day. Any direct sunlight comes in the morning, but that is only farther down the wall away from the front door.
