READER PHOTOS! Judy's Garden in Ontario, Day 2comments (11) May 24th, 2012 in blogs
Day 2 of Judy Burton's garden in Severn Township, Ontario. Today we get a look at Judy's front porch, back deck, and her amazing display of containers. Judy says, "The deck and back garden are on the north side of the house, so they are primarily planted with shade loving plants such as impatiens, astible, plumonaria, and hydrangea. I particularly like the white hydrangea underplanted with the red impatiens. The containers are on the south and in the direct sunlight, so they are planted with sun loving annuals such as sweet potato vine, wave petunias, verbena, and nasturiums. I grow most of the plants I use in my gardens and containers from seed. I have grow lights and heat mats in my old cellar to start the seedlings, and then I move them into my heated greenhouse (a Rion 12' by 24' kit greenhouse that I love) in early April. I use Osmicote slow release fertilizer in every pot and then fertilize with Miracle Grow every 10 days or so. The combination of the two fertilizers keep the pots lush and healthy all through the growing season." Lush and happy, Judy! Thanks so much for sharing all of these photos with us.
