Garden Pots


I have two scarlet mandevilla vines on both sides of my driveway. They are gorgeous tropical flowering vines.

Every fall I bring them inside till it's warm enough to go back outside. This year I've cut them back in hopes they will once again be as grand as in the photo's. I hope to get one more season with them.

Do you also love to decorate with garden pots?
xo,
Dee

Good Morning, I'm sure that by cutting them back you will have twice the vine this year.
I love potted plants. It is so easy to bring a bit of color to different areas of the yard. It is also nice to be able to move them around when you're after another look or mood in the garden. Grouping many colors can give a playful feeling to an area, but then if you separate them and put the cool colors together and the warm colors in another spot, well it's a simple way of making magic happen. I planned on working in my yard today, but it's raining. We have been needing this rain, so it's a happy day to stay inside. Have a wonderful day, Connie :)

These are beautiful! I truly have a black thumb and anything I've tried to salvage during the winter has died but admittedly, I don't work hard enough at knowing HOW to care for them. I hope your project works out and they bloom bigger and better than last year!

Dee, I love your plants! They're gorgeous! I love to decorate with garden pots, but I'm getting lazy in my old age about watering! They have to be near a sprinkler head. Bad, I know!

They're beautiful Dee!

I really love mandevilla too and have grown them in the past. They are striking even from the curb. I have tried saving plants through the winter and some do well. Some however, do well and then come down with some insect/pest and I fight it for a while and then give up.

I have also tried taking cuttings and rooting with a rooting hormone, but woody stem plants are difficult. I have two very beautiful, very old hardy hibiscus and I have not been successful in getting cuttings started no matter how I try.

Gorgeous plants. I love the mandevilla vines, but really have a problem with mites when I try to grow them. No matter how much I spray, those pesky boogers just keep coming back...Guess I'll have to enjoy your's!!

I love that vine, I just can't spell it LOL! I finally just gave up hope on a potted plant I have kept alive for 4 years. I changed the soil once and fertilized faithfully. I keep my potted plants to minimum as it is so hot in Florida that they take constant watering.

Your potis is so pretty. It's thriving and pleasant looking the growing greens. I also have a few pots hanging in my patio. Some are ivy - love the curve hanging down.

How pretty, Dee! I love the metalwork holder, too.

Good Morning Dee:
Love Mandevilla Vine. I have had them in the past when no one around here even knew what they were. I haven't used them in a couple of years.....you have made me want to bring them back! The scarlet color is beautiful. As for decorating with pots...you must visit my post I did this week on my marble table on the deck. Found a nursery in Michigan that is the best ever, moss and all!
Thanks for the inspiration Dee.

That dark rich green with the red blossoms is so pretty. You have a way with these, that's for sure.

The madevilla is so pretty with those red flowers! I love that you could bring them in over the winter and they survive! There are 2 concrete urns in the front of my house which I plant annuals in each year. Potted flowers are so charming.
