Pretty on the Fences - Marie

I live in a sixplext apartment, with a very little strip of ground 1' front and back going north and south. the north side has a flower bed, and the south has clothes line,no area for a garden.some of my neighbors/landlord got in conflict over the specfics over the garden,the neighbor took soem of my fowers out and put them somewhere in the garden, that really upset me, it is like uprooting children from one school and put them in another. Now we can't plant anything in the ground.We have a wirewood fence on both sides of the complex,so I decided to hanging flower planters,and pot, from the fence. Theorically, there not in the ground.I have started some pes and beans 2 types in them, they are now 5" high, I am so excited.It looks so pretty on the fences.

About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"Gardening is about creating one’s own paradise and living in it. Whether one’s garden is as tiny as a patio or porch or wide as the sky, designing and tending it can be an ecstatic addiction, a passionate love affair with a dream that never quite comes true, but perhaps eventually it will. In winter we gardeners pore over seed catalogues with joyful hearts. Next year, we think, the garden will be better than ever. Let those who consider gardening a chore, go find something else to do and leave this joyful task to gardeners like me!"
