Strawberry Pot Pansies


Strawberry Pot Pansies (Viola)

This is what I ended up doing with my strawberry pot. I was given a bunch pansies, so I decided to try them in this planter. I added vermiculite to the soil to help keep it from drying out. They have been in the planter about a month now and are still looking good. They dry out every so often, but perk up quickly after watering.

Great idea to grow pansies in a strawberry pot or any kind of flower that will manage. I'm going to get me some.

I see you have a tree fern! How do you like growing it? I was thinking of getting a small one. I know they can get very tall. I wonder if they would do ok growing in a pot long-term and would not get too tall.

Good idea for the pot. Tree ferns only grow about 2 cm. (whoops sorry you are from US - less than an inch) on the 'trunk' a year. They are fine in a pot long term as long as you remember to feed and water them. Particularly water. I'm sure both Dee and me wish they would grow just a little faster.

Great idea and the pansies are lovely.

Ooh! I was wondering what to plant in mine this year! I had trouble last year with the water coming straight out of the holes instead of being absorbed by the soil. Maybe I'll try adding something like sphagnum moss.
