I have a dream… that some day I can grow those amazing cascading flower baskets like the ones from Bloom Master. My home town has been hanging those baskets for the last 5-10 years or so, and they make main street look amazing. My Mom plants them too, and her yard looks amazing. I bought some of the large Bloom Master pots years ago thinking the cascading flowers would look awesome hanging off the back deck. However the sun is really harsh during the afternoon, it gets overly windy, and every year I fail. My flower pots look ok, but not full and stunning. So this year, I’m trying it again but in the front yard where the flowers will be more protected. I also want to dress up a window that’s a little boring. I built a large planter box out of pallets, since it is made from pallets I won’t feel bad ruining the wood. I’ll post periodic updates to show the progress of the wave petunias, hoping for amazing!
