New Plant Stand

I love shopping … and I love buying new plants and gardening things! When I went to Ferndale on Saturday I also bought a plant stand – I’ve wanted one of these forever. I see so many of these in gardening magazines and they look so great when they have lots of lovely plants on them. They delivered it yesterday and within minutes, we started putting our empty pots on it and pots we’ve been collecting for the day we got our “plant stand”. And I added the few “unplanted” plants I have – and look, its already full! Well almost … of course now I want to organise everything properly, get some plants to put in the little pots and make it look pretty! (= more shopping!)

I added my new Tomato Plant to it and I’m going to plant herbs and things in some of the little pots. I have seeds – Coriander, Sweet Basil, Chives and Parsley, so this will be my first attempt at planting from seed. Should be fun!

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

hi Christine…its been lovely to read about the good things you always have to say about Ferndale…when you next pop in at the nursery pls come and say hi…Pedro

Don’t let Ferndale Nursery hear you say that! Heehee! It is very hard to only walk out with one item. I have the same problem.

Oh yes, haha, I know! “Here come’s crazy plant lady again”, and “ca-ching”. They must think I have acres of land and nothing to do, haha!! I think I have to go to another nursery next week, i have more stuff i need (something to fix the lavender with!). The truth is i go to buy 1 thing and leave with 10, and I justify it because they give me a discount!

I wonder what the owners of Ferndale say when they see you coming – heehee!! I love those plant stands and they will certainly suit your garden. They are perfect for an empty wall or a boring corner. Already it looks lived-in! Wait until you have your herbs and your tomato growing, it will be a pleasure to walk into your garden and pick some for your dinner plate!
