TOP TIP: Flower Pot Drain Hole Cover: Just lay a coffee filter in the bottom of the pot covering the hole before filling the pot. The soil will stay in the pot and the water will still drain out because that is what coffee filters are designed to do; let water through. They last for a long time, too; by the time they fall apart, the potting soil is well packed and the plant has roots that hold the soil together.
Use a lemon, orange or a grapefruit to start your seedlings. Plant the entire thing in the ground & the peels will compost directly into the soil to nourish the plants as they grow.
This charming nook gets its appeal from the delightful details: tiny hanging lantern lights, retro furniture and lush container plants.

A Potted Herb Garden What to plant: Various herbs can share the same pot, but make sure they are compatible by reading the care tags. Water-loving basil and curly parsley (shown, near left) make good partners, whereas rosemary, sage, and oregano (rear) all prefer a slightly drier environment. Or try different varieties of one plant, such as common, lemon, and silver thyme (front). potted garden, herb garden, pot herb, planting herbs, kitchen herbs, herbs garden, porch, container gardening, garden pots

grassy paving - put mother-of-thyme or other low-growers that don't need mowing, and use it for parking lots instead of asphalt. Most wil survive. What doesn't - put asphalt there only. And you will end up with a less heated, more water-absorbent surface, much healthier and greener. wise women, remember this, judg, driveway, inspir, patio, mother teresa, garden, love quotes
