One thing I like about selling Real Estate is BREAK TIME. Some days it is Changing the Laundry, could be Facebook, but yesterday it was attending a class at Innis Gardens in Westerville. If you know me, you would easily know that I LOVE being around people. So on the days I am on the phone and/or computer, I need to reward myself with these short breaks. I have always loved troughs that help make a garden look like it has been there for years…..these troughs are not inexpensive…so the class was a demonstration with a recipe for the cement mixture. One small problem, you can’t purchase Portland Cement in small bags…just wait until George sees the cement mixing truck coming towards our driveway.
Ingredients: Sphagnum Peat Moss, Perlite, Vermiculite or Sand, Portland Cement, Fibermesh from a cement company, and concrete coloring if you want a color. There are many different recipes available…but I don’t think it will be too difficult. One Hour Class…FREE
Plant Sale is Coming UP…Talk about established perennials? May 5-6 Garden to Kitchen..April 11…Container Gardening April 17. There are numerous programs for children too.Love these pots too….
One more idea…I bought some great flower pots/long window boxes ($7) last Fall at the Habit for Humanity Warehouse. Check in your area…they have some great “stuff” for gardens…old windows, doors, etc.
