WANTED: Garden Supplies & Plants for container garden

athirkFebruary 9, 2010

Hi all,

I have a big concrete pad in the back of my house and am hoping to fill it with some color. It is on the north side of our garage and west side of our house, but it does get some good indirect and afternoon light. If anyone has any good plants that would be good a newbie container gardener and that they'd be willing to share, I'd be really grateful! I also have some full sun areas in the front of our house that I'm hoping to do some container gardening in, and a boulder rock wall (direct morning light, filtered afternoon light) that I'm hoping to do a rock garden in.

There are also some other tools and supplies I could really use if someone has any laying around that they are not using it. The following are things I'm looking around for as I "grow" my garden/yard:

-supplies to help fertilize and/or fight diseases/pests for rhodies, azaleas, camelias, photinia and/or bamboo

-electric/handheld hedger (got clippers already)

-large pots for shrubs/trees

-bulb digger

-soil ammendments


-supplies to help transplanting and growing cuttings

Will you be coming to the green elephant trade in March? There will be plenty of plants for you to fill as many containers as you have.
