How Does My Garden Grow?

Now that the weather is just right for planting. I bought some small rose plants, succulents, and annuals 
and went to work this past weekend. 

 My garden space is very limited do to the amount of clay soil that I have. There is no getting around it, I have a clay problem... This year I thought instead of planting in the ground, I would make individual gardens, in pots.

 Whenever I plant directly into the clay, and no matter how much good potting soil that I mix with it, the clay 
takes over. So, hopefully this "pot planting" idea 
is the trick.

Hey Linda ;o) Sorry, I am behind in everything! So far, I think your garden looks beautiful ;o) I think you are doing a great job ;o) Smart idea planting in pots, because your soil is so bad. Take Care, Hugs ;o)

I almost forgot about getting some small shrubs for my front yard until I saw your post!

Your roses look beautiful. The small succulents are something I've wanted to try planting, yours look so fresh and healthy. Pots sound like a good solution. Enjoy!

Potted plants around a garden always looks so pretty. It adds height that otherwise would not be there! Good luck with all your new plants.
