Judy http://judeself.blogspot.com/ asked me where I got the planter for the geraniums in a post a couple of days ago. I bought it at Amazon. I had seen my daughter's "stack and grow" when we were visiting her at the lake.She isn't there all the time, so she needs plants that will do without watering etc. Hers is planted with sedum and other succulents. She takes it into the garage in the winter, but I don't think she would have to do this.Well, I fell in love with it....so when I got a gift card I knew what I was going to use it for. After I ordered it, I was so anxious to get it and get started planting it. They are called "stack and grows" and come in many different sizes. Hers is a little larger than mine and is more flattened...mine is taller.Since I have so many succulent type plants around the house, I decided to put geraniums in it, and they have done well. As I said before, I am going to take the layers in and try to keep the geraniums over the winter. We'll see how well they do in their vacation spot in the basement.
I think that these are really nice planters...made of plastic so they retain water and don't dry out as much. I planted geraniums in mine, knowing that they are pretty good in dry conditions. Herbs would do well in it too. Even house plants could be planted. They are nice for apartment dwellers and senior citizens, who still want to do a bit of gardening. I can visualize these at nursing homes for the residents to take care of.
This post reads like a commercial for the "stack and grow". I'm not receiving any compensation for this...just wanted to say how very happy I am with this planter and to let Judy know, so she might buy one. I appreciate it when bloggers tell about products that they like. Then you get the true story, because bloggers are pretty smart cookies :)
