Water Garden!

Saturday, July 16, 2011

My latest project is shaping up nicely -- a makeshift water garden set up on the back porch of my apartment in a rubbermaid tub.

My water lily, aquatic mint, and lizard tail arrived today and I planted the lily. I am waiting for the floating pot to arrive for the other two plants. I sure hope this lily lives.... I only get 3-4 hours of direct sunlight on my porch, and I bought it because the site specifically said it was pretty shade tolerant.... but other sites don't mention it, and one even says "full sun" x.x...

I will take some pics once I have all of the components in place, including goldfish!

    Oh--I can't wait for the photos. Here in CT the winters are awful. Don't you have that problem? Chris

    What fun. I do container gardening on my deck, because most of my yard is shaded.
