As gardeners, we tend to grow into the flowers we prefer. I don't know if its age or an increased appreciation of certain shapes and colors. I do know that I once thought of petunias as flowers for old women. I'm not sure why.
In recent years, I have developed a love for petunias. One could argue that I am an old woman - although I prefer to think I am in my gardening prime. Whatever the reason, my garden is not complete without at least one container of petunias.
When I saw petunias grown in towers, I knew I had to have one. With a little exploring I found directions for making your own with wire fencing and landscape fabric. For step by step directions see Making plant towers with garden fence and landscape fabric.
I can't wait to make a couple of these and try them out with a variety of flowers, including petunias.
Until next time .... HAPPY GARDENING!
