Gardening at my daughter's - Part 2

Today I helped my daughter finish her tiny garden.  This time I was there as a helper and adviser, she wanted to do her small garden in the front of her townhouse.  The home had Yellow Croton in the front of the house that she hated.


 

Part 1 was my gift to her while she went on her honeymoon.
 We took out all the Crotons and replaced them with purple hearts, Mexican petunias and some grasses.


 

She purchased a big container and I planted bromeliads from my garden

Small spaces can be so difficult & intimidating but you did such a wonderful job! I am sure your daughter loves it!

Happy Gardening & best wishes,

Good work. Those crotons were definitely too much yellow for that little space.

Nice job on your daughter's front garden. I think she's getting your green thumb, Rusty! :)

I, too, hate to through away perfectly good plants, and I think you're right they add a nice pop amongst the greenery. Good luck with the veggie garden.
