Now that we have a deck....container plants?
On the northside of our house, we now have a large deck. In the morning, it gets great east sun and some western sun in the afternoons. Against the house, it is always shady.
I've got 3 potted arborvitae (for privacy purposes).
I have space and opportunity to use plants that deer would otherwise eat out in the garden.
At another home, I had a lot of hostas, but not in pots. Anyone here put hosta in containers? Got pics of your arrangements? I'd like to use some in the shady areas. What about heuchera in pots? Anything more exotic?
As for the sunny areas, anything really special that you recommend? I don't want a lot of leaf/petal drop because it's beside the pool. Bees are okay out in the garden, but some of our guests are allergic, so I need to probably be considerate.
If I put tomatoes in a pot...will squirrels be a problem?
Do the "rail saddle" planters work well?
