Waterbabe - a moon garden kind of like that. Doubt stuff would do well tho, the giant trees on fence line leech everything from my yard,plus too much shade
Broke down and ordered the planters I have lusted after for 3 years.. going to do black plants in those

Not as much as I would have if the app had worked right the first time - the mistake was doing it on my phone. Although honestly? It was probably just user error, because I did it on my phone and I am so clumsy on that thing.

Uh, let me think, I filled in my request about 2 weeks ago. Zinnias, some herbs, I know I got a bunch of annuals . . . planning on scattering seeds in some of the beds.
I haven't failed until I quit.

I really want to see pictures of your project, start to finish! :smt045

Planters are a great idea to deal with invasive tree roots :up:

What kind of planters? Putting the places in the yard or on the deck? Pictures please.

I was thinking of replacing our Raspberries (which are not surviving) with Blueberries till I did some research and see that you can get upwards of 10lbs per plant! Have nowhere to store that much fruit. lol

Might do 1 in a planter.

Store blueberries? :135: What means "store blueberries"? Because we eat them asap! but ya, definitely got several pickings off two plants. The mini container blueberry bush in a planter might be your best solution.

If we planted 10 bushes and had to eat them as they were picked I would look like this!

btw, be lucky to see them by end of May :)
Oh Lady... I figure the moon garden to much work for one, and that darn Lilith isn't good for much except loving and being cute
Maybe I could do the moon garden in the front but the deer would devour it... they are already roaming , tracks in the back where it was kinda spongy

I grew up in Blueberry central, (Richmond), and I have never seen a Blueberry bush produce 10lbs. Maybe 5lbs if the bush is growing in a high acid soil like peat moss and has plenty of water and is old.

The older the bush, the bigger the berries. A new bush will only produce small berries for at least the first 5-7 years.

Very nice. What kind of plants/flowers are you planning for them?
