I followed up on Sally's lead for free pots in my area. Lee (turned out to be a female Lee) was cleaning pots out of her garage and gave me a bunch that will prove very handy. I enjoyed getting to also see her yard. In addition, one of her neighbors has a long, narrow piece of property and lets her garden on part of it...nice arrangement!
Funny how things go. Lee asked me what I needed so many pots for & I told her about my passion for brugs (sounds better than addiction?!) and she said her mother & sister both grow them. She also said she was only familiar with white- and yellow-flowered cultivars. After I launched into an enthusiastic dissertation on all the wonderful colors & forms now available, she started considering a spot in her yard that would be a good site for an in-ground brug.....gotta love enabling someone on the path to brug addiction. I'm hoping all 3 women will join us here on the forum.
