Terra Cotta Pot Edging

February 11, 2012
For the past two years now I have placed an upside down terra cotta pot border along one side of my spruce tree and deck to contain a small perennial bed I have under a tree.

The perennials include sedums, astilbes, hostas, and lady's mantle.

This will be year three on the perennials so I am expecting a good show!

Think spring everyone!

***I have received several questions about the farm implement leaning on the tree. It is a vintage seeder.
