My new planter


By diydick


This is the new garden planter I made a few weeks ago now planted up.
At the back from left to right there is a chocolate vine Akebia Quinata,a rose do not know which,and another chocolate vine,in front Azalea Jap “Madame Van Hecke” a Geranium (zonal) Merle which I saved from last year and Senetti Percalis Hybrid Deep Blue which does not look so good today.

Looks great, nice and colourful and with the taller things to grow up the back, nice choices.

You`ve made a good job of that, but keep an eye on the akebia as they can be rampant.
