The guy I work for, Don, has a great garden design method that is known as 'put and look'. It's simple enough: just put the potted plants (still in their pots) where you plan to have them, then stand back and see how they look. If you don't like that look, move them around until you do. That's usually a doddle to do with seedlings, baby shrubs and saplings, but with a 10-year-old, 2m tall curry tree in a large, heavy pot it was strenuous going. Enough complaining, here's how 'put and look' worked out.
|The money tree is staying where it is. For a while I |
entertained the foolish idea of moving it, but it's staying
where it is, and the curry tree is to move up the lane.
|Here's the old 'succulent city' back in 2008, and |
a happy jumble of plants it was, too, and I would like
to maintain something of the colour and spirit of
this potted gaggle, but without the pots.
